D#m                    C# 
Hello darkness my old friend
I ve come to talk to you again
                        B          F#
because a vision softly is creeping
         D#m            B          F#
left its seeds while I was sleeping
        B                             F#           D#m
and the vision that was planted in my brain still remains
           C#       D#m
within the sound of silence

D#m                         C# 
In restless dreams I walked alone
narrow streets of cobble-stone
                  B        F#
Neath the halo of a street lamp
            D#m           B        F#
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
         B                                        F#
when my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
               D#m                    C#       D#m
that split the night and touched the sound of silence

D#m                       C# 
And in the naked light I saw
ten thousand people maybe more
                    B        F#
people talking without speaking
         D#m        B        F#
people hearing without listening
                 B                      F#
people writing songs that voices never share
            D#m              C#       D#m
and no-one dare disturb the sound of silence

D#m                       C# 
Fools said I you do not know
silence like a cancer grows
                       B        F#
hear my words that I might teach you
        D#m          B        F#
take my arms that I might reach you
         B                          F#   D#m 
But my words like silent raindrops fell
                   C#       D#m
and echoed in the wells of silence

D#m                       C# 
And the people bowed and prayed
to the neon god they d made
                           B      F#
And the sign flashed out its warning
        D#m           B        F#
in the words that it was forming
And the sign said the words of the prophets are written
               F#                 D#m 
in the subway walls and tenement halls
                       C#        D#m
and whispered in the sound - of silence
