PAUL SIMON; THE SOUND OF SILENCE


Dm C Dm F Bb F Bb F Bb F Dm F C Dm

HELLO DARKNESS MY OLD FRIEND
I'VE COME TO TALK WITH YOU AGAIN
BECAUSE A VISION SOFTLY CREEPING
LEFT ITS SEEDS WHILE I WAS SLEEPING
AND THE VISION THAT WAS PLANTED IN MY BRAIN STILL REMAINS WITH IN THE SOUND OF SILENCE

IN RESTLESS DREAMS I WALKED ALONE
NARROW STREETS OF COBBLESTONE
BENEATH THE HALO OF A STREET LAMP
I TURNED MY COLLAR TO THE COLD AND DAMP
WHEN MY EYES WERE STABBED BY THE FLASH OF A NEON LIGHT
THAT SPLIT THE NIGHT AND TOUCHED THE SOUND OF SILENCE

AND IN THE NAKED LIGHT I SAW
TEN THOUSAND PEOPLE MAYBE MORE
PEOPLE TALKING WITHOUT SPEAKING
PEOPLE HEARING WITHOUT LISTENING
PEOPLE WRITING SONGS THAT VOICES NEVER SHARE
AND NO ONE DARE DISTURB THE SOUND OF SILENCE

FOOLS SAID I YOU DO NOT KNOW
SILENCE LIKE A CANCER GROWS
HEAR MY WORDS THAT I MIGHT TEACH YOU
TAKE MY ARMS THAT I MIGHT TEACH YOU
BUT MY WORDS LIKE SILENT RAINDROPS FELL
AND ECHOED IN THE WELLS OF SILENCE


AND THE PEOPLE BOWED AND PRAYED
TO THE NEON GOD THEY MADE
AND THE SIGN FLASHED OUT ITS WARNING
IN THE WORDS THAT IT WAS FORMING
AND THE SIGN SAID THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS
ARE WRITTEN ON THE SUBWAY WALLS AND TENEMENT HALLS
AND WHISPERED IN THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE
