The Sound Of Silence

verse 1 
Em                        D 
   Hello darkness, my old friend, 
I've come to talk with you again, 
                     C       G 
Because a vision softly creeping, 
                       C       G 
Left its seeds while I was sleeping, 
        C                             G 
And the vision that was planted in my brain 
            G/F# Em 
Still remains 
G           D        Em 
Within the sound of silence. 

verse 2 
In restless dreams I walked alone 
Narrow streets of cobblestone, 
                   C        G 
'neath the halo of a street lamp, 
                          C        G 
I turned my collar to the cold and damp 
        C                                        G 
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light 
                    G/F# Em 
That split the night 
 G              D        Em 
And touched the sound of silence. 

verse 3 
And in the naked light I saw 
Ten thousand people, maybe more. 
                   C       G 
People talking without speaking, 
                   C        G 
People hearing without listening, 
               C                       G 
People writing songs that voices never share 
              G/F# Em 
And no one dare 
G           D        Em 
Disturb the sound of silence. 

verse 4 
Fools said I, you do not know 
Silence like a cancer grows. 
                     C           G 
Hear my words that I might teach you, 
                    C           G 
Take my arms that I might reach you. 
       C                           G   G/F# Em 
But my words like silent raindrops fell, 
And echoed 
       D        Em 
In the wells of silence 

Verse 5 
And the people bowed and prayed 
To the neon God they made. 
                         C      G 
And the sign flashed out its warning, 
                      C     G 
In the words that it was forming. 
And the sign said, the words of the prophets 
Are written on the subway walls 
             G     G/F# Em 
And tenement halls. 
         G           D         Em 
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.
