The Sound of Silence
The Sound of Silence: Chords
FA#m MI Hello, darkness, my old friend FA#m I've come to talk with you again RE LA Because a vision softly creeping, RE LA Left its seeds while I was sleeping RE LA And the vision that was planted in my brain FA#m Still remains MI FA#m Within the sound of silence MI In restless dreams I walked alone FA#m Narrow streets of cobblestone RE LA 'Neath the halo of a street lamp RE LA I turned my collar to the cold and damp RE RE/FA# LA When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light SIm7 FA#m LA That split the night MI FA#m And touched the sound of silence MI And in the naked light I saw FA#m Ten thousand people, maybe more RE LA People talking without speaking RE LA People hearing without listening RE LA People writing songs that voices never share FA#m LA FA#m And no one dare LA MI FA#m Disturb the sound of silence MI "Fools," said I, "You do not know FA#m Silence, like a cancer, grows RE LA Hear my words that I might teach you RE LA Take my arms that I might reach you," RE LA FA#m But my words like silent raindrops fell LA MI FA#m And echoed in the wells of silence MI And the people bowed and prayed FA#m To the neon god they made RE LA And the sign flashed out its warning RE LA In the words that it was forming And the sign said, RE "The words of the prophets LA are written on the subway walls FA#m LA And tenement halls FA#m MI FA#m And whispered in the sound of silence
