Intro:


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     
And the vision
                        
F#  
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
  
F#              
I turned my collar
       
B        
F#  
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
Bridge:
B B Ebm Ebm x2

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
B                   
Prophets are written
              
F#   
on the subway walls
             
F#    
Ebm
And tenement halls    
    
F#                 
C#   
And whispered   in the sound
   
Ebm    
of silence
