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