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

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

Ebm                      C# 
And in the naked light I saw
                           Ebm 
Ten thousand people, maybe more
                 B         F#  
People talking without speaking
                  B        F#   
People hearing without listening
               B    
People writing songs
                  F#   
That voices never share
           F#    Ebm  F#
And no one dared        
            C#         Ebm    
Disturb the sound   of silence

Ebm                          C#  
"Fools," said I, "You do not know
                      Ebm  
Silence like a cancer grows
                     B           F# 
Hear my words that I might teach you
                    B           F#   
Take my arms that I might reach you."
       B    
But my words
     B                F#    Ebm
Like silent raindrops fell     
    F#              C#         Ebm    
And echoed   in the wells   of silence

Ebm                       C#   
And the people bowed and prayed
                     Ebm 
To the neon god they made
                         B      F#  
And the sign flashed out its warning
                     B      F#  
In the words that it was forming
                       B           
And the sign said, The words of the
                                   F#   
Prophets are written on the subway walls
             F#    Ebm
And tenement halls    
    F#                 C#         Ebm    
And whispered   in the sound   of silence
