Softly Kill Me
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
The flood comes in, arrives a crying flower
The sky's gone dim but still it's morning my way
Your love runs dry like a valley of the mountains
There's soil in your eye but still there's nothing to see
I scream for you, your ears are closed to my whispers
I'm guilty of walking but still the rain hits my skin
My blood runs stale as my heartbeat skips an answer
The key's in my hand, but still I see the way out

Chorus:
And you whisper softly to me
And you whisper softly to me
Yeah, you softly kill me, yeah
Oh, hey ya, hey ya, hey ya, oh

I kiss your name, shrug off my goodbyes
Watching my tears away from the potion
I can't remember across the seaside
You smiled at me beneath the moonlight
I take a step closer to heaven
I'm seized by man untamed by our hearts

Chorus:
Then you whisper softly
Then you whisper softly
Yeah, you softly kill me, yeah
Oh, ah-de-da-de-da-da

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

My buried heart
My buried heart
My buried heart, yeah
My buried heart
My buried heart
My buried heart, yeah, yeah, again

And I think I love you
And I think I love you
And I think I love you, I do
And I think I love you
And I think I love you
And I think I love you, I do, I do, I do, I do, I do

But you look at me
Just just just look at me
Just look at me, yeah
Would you look at me
Just once, just look at me
Just look at me, look at me, yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah
Oh-oh, yeah, yeah, da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, yeah
Da-da-da-da
Oh, oh, no-no-no, no-no-no
These are the lyrics to the live version of the Last Wish song Softly Kill Me, which are a bit different from the recorded version.

This is another Last Wish song that is extremely hard to decipher.  It seems no-one else has in the past, because I couldn't find lyrics to it anywhere.  Justin's vocals are sung in a low key, and are blurred by the bad quality and the fact that he was likely recorded on the same frequency as the rest of the music.  I think I got most of the words right, however, and if you have any suggestions, email me at thesongwriter@gmail.com .  It's a very wonderful and sexy love song, and the title reminds me of Killing Me Softly With Your Song by Roberta Flack.
