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
ギターを奏でる指が私の心の傷をかき鳴らす 歌詞で私の人生が語られる
彼の歌が優しく私の心を締めつける 彼の歌が優しく私の心を締めつける
歌詞が私の生きてきたすべてを語っている 彼の歌が優しく私の心を締めつける

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
歌が素敵だと独特なスタイルがあるって聞いていた
だからちょっと立ち寄って聞いてみることにしたの
彼はそこにいた 若い男の子で 見たこともなかった

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 Embarassed 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
体中が熱くなり人混みのなか恥ずかしくなる
まるで私の書いた手紙を読み上げられてるみたいで
はやく終わりにならないかと祈ったけれど彼は歌い続ける

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 as 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
私の絶望を全て見透かしたように彼は歌った
そして私など居ないかのように彼は右に視線を移した
でも彼は私に向かって歌い続ける 歌声をはっきりと強くして 

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
くりかえし
