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

Meaning

The song is about hearing a song that totally parallels your life and how hard it is to hear exactly what you are going thru.
