Killing Me Softly with His Song (Matandome suavemente con su canción) – Roberta Flack

"Killing Me Softly with His Song" es una canción compuesta por Charles Fox y Normal Gimbel en el año 1971. La canción fue inspirada por el poema de Lori Lieberman, "Killing Me Softly with His Blues", la cual ella escribió despues de ver al entonces desconocido Don McLean quién ejecutaba en vivo la canción "Empty Chairs".

Lyrics
KILLING ME SOFTLY WITH HIS SONG
Roberta Flack

Strumming my pain with his fingers,
singing my life with his words,
killing me softly with his song,
killing me softly with his song,
telling my whole life with his words,
killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style.
And so I came to see him to listen for a while.
And there he was this young boy, a stranger to my eyes.

I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd,
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud.
I prayed that he would finish but he just kept right on.

He sang  as if  he knew me in all my dark despair
and then he looked right through me as if I wasn´t there.
But he just came to singing, singing clear and strong.
