Capo 6th fret Am G Am Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you again C F C F C Because a vision softly creeping, left its seeds while I was sleeping F C Am And the vision that was planted in my brain still remains C G Am within the sound of silence Am G Am In restless dreams I walked alone, narrow streets of cobblestone C F C F C Beneath the halo of a street lamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp F C Am When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light that split the night C G Am and touched the sound of silence Am G Am And in the naked light I saw ten thousand people, maybe more C F C F C People talking without speaking, people hearing without listening F C Am People writing songs that voices never share and no one dare C G Am disturb the sound of silence Am G Am "Fools!" said I, "You do not know, silence like a cancer grows." C F C F C "Hear my words that I might teach you, take my arms that I might reach you." F C Am But my words like silent raindrops fell C G Am and echoed in the wells of silence Am G Am And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made C F C F C And the sign flashed out its warning in the words that it was forming F C Am And the signs said "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls." C G Am And whispered in the sounds of silence
