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
