Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound Of Silence



Category: Rock | Familiar Songs
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        
Within the sound   of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath 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 dared        
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 reach 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 sound   of silence
