2.5 The Sound of Silence

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