[Verse 1] Em D Hello darkness, my old friend Em I've come to talk with you again C G Because a vision softly creeping Em C G Left its seeds while I was sleeping Em C C2 C G And the vision that was planted in my brain Em D Em Still remains within the sound of silence [Verse 2] Em D In restless dreams I walked alone Em Narrow streets of cobblestone C G 'Neath the halo of a street lamp Em C G I turned my collar to the cold and damp C C2 C G When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light Em G That split the night Em D Em And touched the sound of silence [Verse 3] Em D And in the naked light I saw Em Ten thousand people, maybe more C G People talking without speaking C G People hearing without listening C C2 C G People writing songs that voices never share Em G - Em And no one dare D Em Disturb the sound of silence [Verse 4] Em D Fools said I, you do not know Em Silence like a cancer grows C G Hear my words that I might teach you C G Take my arms that I might reach to you C C2 C G But my words like silent raindrops fell Em - G D Em And echoed in the wells of silence [Verse 5] Em D And the people bowed and prayed Em To the neon God they made C G And the sign flashed out it's warning C G And the words that it was forming And the sign said C C2 C G The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls Em And tenement halls D Em And whispered in the sound of silence
