Paul Simon ft. Art Garfunkel - The sound of silence
AmG Hello darkness, my old friendAmI've come to talk with you againFCBecause a vision softly creepingFCLeft its seeds while I was sleepingFCAnd the vision that was planted in my brainC/BAmStill remainsCGAmWithin the sound of silence
AmG In restless dreams I walked aloneAmNarrow streets of cobblestoneFC'neath the halo of a street lampFCI turned my collar to the cold and dampFCWhen my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon lightC/BAmThat split the nightCGAm And touched the sound of silence
AmG And in the naked light I sawAmTen thousand people, maybe moreFCPeople talking without speakingFCPeople hearing without listeningFCPeople writing songs that voices never shareC/BAmAnd no one dareCGAmDisturb the sound of silence
AmG "Fools", said I, "you do not know"Am"Silence like a cancer grows"FC"Hear my words that I might teach you"FC"Take my arms that I might reach you"FCC/BAmBut my words like silent raindrops fellCGAmAnd echoed in the wells of silence
AmG And the people bowed and prayedAmTo the neon god they madeFCAnd the sign flashed out its warningFCIn the words that it was formingFAnd the sign said: "The words of the prophets"C"Are written on the subway walls"CC/BAm"And tenement halls"CGAm"And whispered in the sounds of silence"
