Como, Perry - When Lyrics




When, when beauty fades from view,
As worldly things will do,
My eyes will still see you...

When, when dreams turn old and gray,
And seem to slip away,
My dream of you will stay...

Loving you, the way I do,
Wanting you, needing you,
Don't you know, can't you see,
My love will flow eternally...

Don't you know, can't you see,
My love will flow eternally...

And when, when evening shadows fall,
And you are in my arms,
I love you most of all...

Loving you, the way I do,
Wanting you, needing you,
Don't you know, can't you see... [to fade]

Como, Perry When Comments
  1. Durag Jesus

    It's amazing how the same song can be executed so differently depending on the artist.

  2. Rainbow Bear

    2020 anyone?

  3. Bugs Bunny

    For years I thought it was Frank Sinatra's song, I am sorry Perry Como you are a legend.

  4. Jacob Smith

    Thank you Holy shit this has changed my whole life. I feel so bad for this man. I think its better than Sinatra's brass sound. I love this its all acoustic with bells here and there its beautiful.

  5. ShinigamiChopper

    I feel bad for this dude. But his voice is really, wow, it's so beautiful you could easily mistake it to be Sinatra's voice.

  6. Kawarir Djazair

    Today the connection is bad .call you later bye

  7. Kawarir Djazair

    Be strong and juste you will destroy all your ennemies.try to forget your past.live your present and prepare your future.you will have your second chance.

  8. Alma Gomez

    Listening in 2020 the most beautiful song I’ve heard in my life

  9. Josip Marijan

    Whos here who cant sleep cuz you in love and just listening to this and cant stop thinking about her/him.

  10. Bakhit Novel

    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

  11. Jana Žáková

    This song is so beautiful, it deserves all the covers out there! Huge kudos to Lori Lieberman, the original singer, Charles Fox (composer) & Norman Gimbel (lyrics). And please, for the love of God, stop false-labelling songs for views, everyone!

  12. Spirit flame777

    Give it an ambient 80s like tone perfect 80s style vampire love movie!

  13. Holly Broughton

    In another life I was a busker

  14. tora adhikari

    To set the record straight, Como covered Flack who covered Lori Liebermann in this song. I feel that Lori never gets enough credit.

  15. Brannon Morgan

    Great Version ...

  16. Susanti Nyimas

    lagunya bang mandra di SDAS

  17. Ethan Monseees

    I truthfully like this better then Sinatras Version

    Reem FK.

    Ethan Monseees actually Sinatra never covered it (not officially) so it was both Perry’s version you listened to

    Ecos Adventurer

    The fuck? Did you listen to the same song twice and say one was better then the other?

  18. Ilkan Ali

    Lauryn hill did the best rendition I love them all but Lauryn hill and the fugees did the best version

  19. Giorgia M.

    2020? This song is a sweet lullaby ❤️

  20. c-synth

    Never knew he was the OG of this song. Learned something new today.

  21. joy

    ok but have you all just heard the fugees version....

  22. Amir. Kavari.

    That's sinatra.

  23. Telios Abraxas

    Had no idea back then in the 90's that the Fugees were covering this song, thought it was an original song by them. Wow.

  24. dogs are cute

    Anyone here cuz it reminds you of killing stalking??

  25. Marie-Anne DD

    Who is here after reading comments from Sinatra?

  26. Unreal -

    Wait but I think it was Lori lieberman who originally sang it though......

  27. lyonclaws

    Zhavia.

  28. john

    Roberta Flack - Killing Me Softly brought me here

  29. Yo soy una batata

    Poor Oh Sangwoo...

  30. Sam M

    I am building a time machine to take me back to the 50’s!!!

  31. Eusebio como

    Una gran cancion😀😀😀😀

  32. Christopher Vocal

    I heard she sang a good song
    I heard she had a style
    And so I came to see her
    To 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 aloud

    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 she knew me
    In all my dark despair
    And then she looked right through me
    As if I wasn't there

    But she was there, this stranger
    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

    Killing me softly, with her song.

    Sum yung guy

    Thanks it was very hard to understand him my ears got so wet listing to his voice

    Christopher Vocal

    @Sum yung guy Glad it could help, I need it for singing practice :) Happy 2020

  33. I Like Videos

    -Killing him softly with his saw.
    -Killing him soflty?
    -With his saw.

  34. POSCA DRAWING

    y'all know guys
    don't care if sinatra or como
    just enjoy this masterpiece

  35. Kyle Farmer

    Great to see Como getting credit. First time I heard this it was listed as Frank Sinatra....? Amazing song

  36. flex tape cake

    to everyone saying this song was not sung by frank sinatra: we get it. i’ve already seen 50 comments (AND THE TITLE) saying the exact same thing and pointing out the difference, you’re not special :- )

  37. Maye Dean

    The extra verse I didn't know 😭 cos I only knew the fugees version.

  38. Eric Tyler Dés Phuong Xin

    so attractive... we need more men like this in music!

  39. David Furor Curser

    is every song just a cover?

  40. Soggy Boii

    Anyone know who the background singers are?

  41. Tesla Kuhn

    PC did NOT write this song, ya'll. Before you start arguing, google it.

  42. val eerie

    yo there are so many renditions of this song but I just found out that the original singer is Lori Lieberman and the og pronoun is 'his'. that's whack but cool. it was released in 1972 if I'm not mistaken

  43. Andrei koolaid

    I watched enough Godfather to know that the credits goes to sinatra because of the mafia

  44. Janet Stonerook

    Perry Como must have be been very young in this photo. I remember him being very suave and gray haired sitting on a stool singing on his t.v. show .

  45. Cona Chimal

    Súper está canción, las canciones de antes tenían contenido, toda una historia en una canción, y el tono de voz como la de Frank Sinatra

  46. Kawarir Djazair

    Since my marriage i must understand that the begining was a lie..the end will be a lie..no feelings..no security..no loyalty

  47. Kawarir Djazair

    Sometimes i ask my self if iam not dreaming.i forgot a lot of beautiful things.i was totally absent in the wedding.i was alone .lonly..

  48. sabbboy

    Wow! I had no idea he sang this first. This is so beautiful. The flow of his voice is so calming. I love this.

  49. Tyesha Waters

    Fugees loves both!

  50. kmt

    Perry’s voice was much smoother and higher than Frank Sinatra’s. He also had a tiny accent in how he pronounces specific words that Frank didn’t have.

  51. Master of my fate

    God is a dick, this man's face looks like handcrafted by him. Meanwhile I'm ugly, don't have this good voice and never got laid

  52. KATIE HEWITT

    Wearing me a bright red dress! I’m in dancing mode!

    Killing me softly with Perry Como's song.

  54. Mansi A

    Goosebumps

  55. esththom

    Dang, how old is this song?

    Jake The Snake

    Old enough to actually be considered music

  56. Venera Sahiti

    His voice is beyond beautiful...

  57. Richard Ames

    Beautiful! Okay, I just added this to my favorites list.

  58. ANA MARIA FERNANDEZ TROXLER

    Me gusta más que Sinatra

  59. PsychoBunnies

    My god this is the song Sangwoo sings in Killing Stalking

  60. Meekdom's Kingdom

    So I had this big conception that Frank Sinatra sang this as well but it's him who actually sang it. Thanks for clearing my misconception.

  61. Kornelia bett

    Pinche sangwoo de mierda :((((

  62. Sahar A.

    This song is very pure, I'm happy to find the real version before I die

    drozdzik 007

    Sahar A. Still alive??

    Sum yung guy

    Nah she dead

    Sahar A.

    drozdzik 007

    Sahar A. Thanks God !!!

    Sum yung guy

    @drozdzik 007 ur profile pic is amazing

  63. Jackeline Garcia

    When I listen to Lana del Rey this is what I sing

  64. Nofie's Jukebox

    makes you wonder who's the woman that inspired this timeless song

    Joshua Knowles

    Lori Libberman

    Tearionia Miller

    And Roberta Flack they collaborated

    Jeroen van Laar

    Actually it was inspired by Don McLean. Lori Lieberman saw him and wrote a poem about him. The poem was then transformed into a song. Lieberman was the first one to sing it.

  65. This Is A Great Name

    My life is a lie

  66. kaylin isidro

    sangwoo question mark

  67. Kaloyan Kolev

    Don't hate Frank Sinatra! I guess he hadn't come up with the idea for stealing a song. It is someone else's fault and it has continued in time.

  68. Ricardo C Lozano

    Justo había escuchado está canción hace dos horas y YouTube me la recomienda :o

  69. Sebastian Zola

    Actually Roberta Flack was the artist that made number 1 on the charts. What made Perry Como such a great artist was that he could sing without any effort it just came as natural as breathing. One of the great artist of any time

  70. Abgzaza bhi

    it kills when he said killing me softely in the low note

  71. Naturaleza Muerta

    This feels like a Ballad from Latin America

  72. Patrick Jenkins

    😎 Perry Como was certainly one of the CLASSIEST & MOST HANDSOME of 20th century American 'CROONERS.' And personally, I think he was even 'CUTER' than Sinatra❗ 😗

  73. Ang y

    Omg a video that actually got it right, it has always been perry como voice.
