Sound of Silence
Simon and Garfunkel
THE SOUND OF SILENCE
Hello darkness, my old friend lam Sol
I’ve come to talk with you again. lam
Because a vision softly creeping, Do Fa Do
left its seeds while I was sleeping. Fa Do
And the vision that was planted Fa
In my brain still remains Do lam
With the Sounds of Silence. Sol lam

In restless dreams I walk alone lam Sol
Narrow streets of cobblestone lam
Neath’s the halo of a street lamp. Do Fa Do
I turned my collar to the cold and dump. Fa Do
When my eyes were stabbed Fa
By the flash of a neon light Do lam
And touch the Sound of Silence. Sol lam

And in naked light I saw lam Sol
Ten thousand people may be more lam
People talking without speaking Do Fa Do
People hearing without listening Fa Do
People writing songs that voices Fa
Never share and no one dare Do lam
Disturb the Sounds of Silence Sol lam
“Fools!” said I. “You do not know lam Sol
Silence like a cancer grows” lam
“Hear my words that I might reach you Do Fa Do
Take my arms that I might reach you” Fa Do
But my words like silent Fa
Rain-drops fell and echoed Do lam
In the wells of silence. Sol lam
And people bowed and prayed lam Sol
To the neon god they made. lam
And the sign flashed out is warming. Do Fa Do
In the words that I was forming Fa Do
And the signs said: “the words Fa
Of the prophets are written on Do lam
The subway walls and tenement halls” Sol lam
And whispered in the Sound of Silence. Sol lam
