Carmen Ezgeta

      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

 

 

(refrain)

 

         

                                                           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 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
               

         

         

(repeat refrain)

         

         

              He sang it as he knew me in all my dark despair
                   and then he looked right through me as if I wasn't there
                       But he was there this stranger singing clear and strong

               

               

(repeat refrain)

                                   

                                   

                                 He was strumming there
                            Yea, he was singing my life
