The sound of silence

(Simon - Garfunkel)

Simon Garfunkel Canti ricreativi





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