Sounds Of Silence Chords

Sounds Of Silence Chords

 

Hello darkness, my old [G#] friend
I’ve come to talk with you [A#m] again
Because a vision soft [F#] ly cree-ping [C#]
Left its seeds while I [F#] was sleeping [C#]
And the [F#] vision that was planted in my [C#] brain
Still re- [A#m] mains within the [G#] sound of [A#m] silence
In restless dreams I walked [G#] alone
Narrow streets of cobble [A#m] stone
‘Neath the halo of [F#] a street lamp [C#]
I turned my collar to the [F#] cold and damp [C#]
When my [F#] eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon [C#] light
That split the [A#m] night and touched the [G#] sound of [A#m] silence
And in the naked light I [G#] saw
Ten thousand people, maybe [A#m] more
People talking with- [F#] out speaking [C#]
People hearing with- [F#] out listening [C#]
People writing [F#] songs that voices never [C#] share
And no one [A#m] dared disturb the [G#] sound of [A#m] silence
“Fools”, said I, “You do not [G#] know
Silence like a cancer [A#m] grows
Hear my words that I [F#] might teach you [C#]
Take my arms that I [F#] might reach you” [C#]
But my [F#] words, like silent raindrops [C#] fell
And [A#m] echoed in the [G#] wells of [A#m] silence
And the people bowed and [G#] prayed
To the neon god they [A#m] made
And the sign flashed out [F#] its warning [C#]
In the words that it [F#] was forming [C#]
And the sign said, “The [F#] words of
the prophets are written on the subway [C#] walls
And tenement [A#m] halls” and whispered in the [G#] sounds of [A#m] silence
