Softly
 
The silence all around me is a grim one,
And I'm trying so hard not to care.
I'm not thinking that I'm done,
I'm feeling the touch of spring in the air.
 
The tears streaming down my cheek...
They're really not tears.
I have not sprung a leak.
I do not have fears.
 
I cannot feel your touch,
But I can see your hand.
I love you so much,
But you're one with the land.
 
I need to let you go.
I hope you can forgive me.
I won't let the tears flow
I'm determined.
 
You're killing me softly,
Though you're already dead.
You're taking your time
Getting out of my head.
 
You're always on my mind now
So much so that I'm crying on a whim.
I can't get you out, it's killing me.
These memories of you just won't dim.
 
Most of me doesn't want those memories
To fade like dust in the wind
But I can't keep the good ones,
Without remembering how they sinned.
 
I'll always remember you're smile,
And the words that you'd softly sing.
But I'll always remember the tears,
And losing My Everything.
 
You're killing me softly,
Though you're already dead.
You're taking your time
Getting out of my head.
 
And I beg you please,
Make it go faster.
I can't handle much more
Of this disaster.
 
I don't want to close my eyes,
Because I'll know I'll see your face.
I want to forget that you lived,
I want to erase every trace.
 
Losing you did not kill me,
Although I assumed it would.
So I have to doubt
That forgetting you could.
 
You're killing me softly,
Though you're already dead.
You're taking your time
Getting out of my head.
 
I hope you understand,
I just don't know what else to do.
I need to let you go or
I'll die here without you.
 
I'm softly setting you down,
And letting these memories go up in flame.
It's going to hurt so much, I know...
And it won't ever be the same.
 
Huni please forgive me,
For what I'm about to do.
I know you'll understand
Because you loved me like I love you.
 
You're killing me softly,
Though you're already dead.
You're taking your time
Getting out of my head.
