第一次聽到這首老歌
是在電影"About a boy"
當時就對這首歌的旋律念念不忘
第二次聽到是在鄧麗君的精選輯
才體會了歌詞中的故事

Killing me softly with his song  by 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 and listen for a while.
And there he was this young boy,
A stranger to my eyes

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

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.

He sang if he knew me,
In all my dark despair,
And then he looked right through me
As if I wasn't there.
And he just kept on singing
Singing clear and strong

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.
