The sounds of silence

	   
Dm                     C 
Hello darkness, my old friend,
                           Dm
I've come to talk with you again,
          F             Bb   F  
Because a vision softly creeping,
                           Bb   F 
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
        Bb                            F
And the vision that was planted in my brain
      Dm
Still remains
F          C         Dm
Within the sounds of silence.
 
Dm                          C 
In restless dreams I walked alone
                                Dm
Through narrow streets of cobblestone,
                F    Bb     F 
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
                          Bb       F
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
        Bb                                       F 
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
               Dm
That split the night
F               C         Dm 
And touched the sounds of silence.
 
Dm                       C
And in the naked light I saw
                           Dm 
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
               F       Bb   F 
People talking without speaking,
                       Bb   F  
People hearing without listening,
               Bb                      F 
People writing songs that voices never shared
           Dm 
And no one dared
F           C         Dm 
Disturb the sounds of silence.
 
Dm                          C
"Fools" said I, "You do not know
                      Dm 
Silence like a cancer grows.
                   F       Bb    F 
Hear my words that I might teach you,
                          Bb    F
Take my arms that I might reach you."
       Bb                          F
But my words like silent raindrops fell ...
Dm     F  
And echoed
       C        Dm 
In the wells of silence
                         C
And the people bowed and prayed
                     Dm
To the neon god they made.
             F               Bb  F 
And the sign flashed out its warning,
                         Bb  F    
In the words that it was forming.
                        Bb                                              F
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
             Dm
And tenement halls." 
    F                C         Dm
And whispered in the sounds of silence.
