The sounds of silence

	  
Capo 5 
  
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.
