    Post Killing me softly with his song

    You know 'Killing me softly with his song' is a famous song title sung by Fugees.
    I wonder whether 'killing me softly with his song' is paradox or metaphor..

    It's confusing...
    The definition of metaphor means a way of describing something by comparing it with something else which has some of the same qualities.
    ( For example, 'The mind is an ocean' and 'the city is a jungle' are both metaphors.)
    The definition of paradox means a situation that seems very strange or impossible because of two opposite qualities or facts..

    Do you think it's paradox or metaphor?
    I wanna know your opinions..

    p.s. Correct my writing if it's not correct...
