lyrics

"Killing you softly" by Carrie Dahlby
Parody of "Killing me softly with his song" as performed by Roberta Flack
Performed live at the wedding reception of Carrie Dahlby and Josh Rasey,
As a present from bride to groom, May 30th 2009

Touching your neck with my fingers
Pillow now muffling your words
Killing you softly in your sleep
Killing you softly in your sleep
Deleting your whole life with my hands
Killing you softly in your sleep

I knew you kinda liked me
I knew you'd marry me
And so I promptly said Yes and put on that new ring
Now here we are, we're married
My evil plan is working...

Causing your pain with my fingers
Hearing your sweet soothing screams
Killing you softly in your sleep
Killing you softly in your sleep
Crushing you gently with my thumbs
Killing you softly in your sleep

I feel all flushed with love now
Surrounded by our peeps
But I'm most looking forward to when you fall asleep
It'll hurt me more than you
Okay, not really, j/k

Humming a lullaby softly
While slipping you more cyanide
Killing you softly in your sleep
Killing you softly in your sleep
Now that you're wrapped 'round my pinky
Killing you softly in your sleep

Your life insurance policy
Just might not be the best
But at least I won't need to clean up all your mess
They say when one door closes
Another opens

And the voices I hear that control me
Tell me I *should* kill you now
Killing you softly in your sleep
Killing you softly in your sleep
Disrupting your slumber with murder
Killing you softly in your sleep

La la la la la la la la
Ree ree ree
La la la la la la la la
Killing you softly in your sleep
Now you will be mine forever
Killing you softly in your sleep
