Frank Sinatra - Killing Me Softly (Spanish translation)

English

Killing Me Softly

I heard she sang a good song, I heard she had a style.
And so I came to see her and listen for a while.
And there she was this young girl, a stranger to my eyes.
 
Strumming my pain with her fingers,
singing my life with her words,
killing me softly with her song,
killing me softly with her song,
telling my whole life with her words,
killing me softly with her song
 
I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd,
I felt she found my letters and read each one out loud.
I prayed that she would finish but she just kept right on.
 
Strumming my pain with her fingers,
singing my life with her words,
killing me softly with her song,
killing me softly with her song,
telling my whole life with her words,
killing me softly with her song
 
She sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair
and then she looked right through me as if I wasn't there.
But she just came to singing, singing clear and strong.
 
Strumming my pain with her fingers,
singing my life with her words,
killing me softly with her song,
killing me softly with her song,
telling my whole life with her words,
killing me softly with her song

Spanish translation

Matándome suavemente

La escuché cantando una buena canción, escuché que tenía estilo.
Y así vine a verla y a escucharla por un momento.
Y ahí estaba esta joven, una extraña a mis ojos.
 
Rasgando mi dolor con sus dedos,
Cantando mi vida con sus palabras,
Matándome suavemente con su canción,
Matándome suavemente con su canción,
Cantando mi vida entera con sus palabras,
Matándome suavemente con su canción.
 
Me sentí avergonzado por la multitud, sonrojado
Sentí como si ella hubiese encontrado mis cartas y las hubiese leído en voz alta
Rogué que ella terminara, pero sólo siguió.
 
Rasgando mi dolor con sus dedos,
Cantando mi vida con sus palabras,
Matándome suavemente con su canción,
Matándome suavemente con su canción,
Cantando mi vida entera con sus palabras,
Matándome suavemente con su canción.
 
Cantaba como si me conociera en mi oscura desesperación
Y luego, ella miró directamente y a través de mí, como si no estuviera ahí.
Pero ella sólo vino a cantar, fuerte y claro.
 
Rasgando mi dolor con sus dedos,
Cantando mi vida con sus palabras,
Matándome suavemente con su canción,
Matándome suavemente con su canción,
Cantando mi vida entera con sus palabras,
Matándome suavemente con su canción.

So beautiful... Roberta is unique, but (and I really hope she forgives me) Frank does her justice with this one.

Yep, and the Fugees' cover is good too. Regular smile

I couldn't agree more, though the rhythm is kind of different (they were the soul of R&B during the 90s, after all) Lauryn has got an amazing voice and it fits so well with the lyrics... Uff, now I definitely need to listen to this version again!

Exactly! That's what makes them all so great: they take a great song to begin with, and they each give them a unique feel. Regular smile
