Song : D
Intro :
Dm
Dm C
Hello darkness, my old friend,
Dm
I've come to talk with you again,
Bb F
Because a vision soft creeping,
Dm Bb F
Left it's seeds while I was sleeping,
Bb F
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Dm
Still remains
C Dm
Within the sound of silence.

Dm C
In restless dreams I walked alone
Dm
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
Dm Bb F
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
Dm Bb F
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
Bb
When my eyes were stabbed
F
by the flash of a neon light
Dm
That split the night
C Dm
And touched the sound of silence.

Dm C
And in the naked light I saw
Dm
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
Bb F
People talking without speaking,
Dm Bb F
People hearing without listening,
Bb F
People writing songs that voices never share
Dm
And no one dare
C Dm
Disturb the sound of silence.

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

Dm C
And the people bowed and prayed
Dm
To the neon God they made.
Bb F
And the sign flashed out it's warning,
Dm Bb F
In the words that it was forming.
Dm Bb F
And the sign said, the words of the prophets
Bb F
Are written on the subway walls
Dm
And tenement halls.
C Dm
And whispered in the sounds of silence.
