The Riddle

I'm keeping a secret, but everyone knows.

Except for the person within whom it grows.

I can't keep it up. I'm disguising it awfully.

At least let me just get through "Killing Me Softly"


In the 2019 movie The Farewell, the lead character Billi's whole family is choosing not to tell Billi's grandmother (or 'nai nai') that she has cancer. Billi is having a hard time grappling with this fact, and struggles to put on a happy face during a fabricated family wedding staged to give everyone an excuse to come visit nai nai without giving up the secret. One of the few moments of joy for Billi at this wedding is when she and her father perform a karaoke duet of The Fugees' version of "Killing Me Softly."
