The sound of silence

(тональность оригинала - Ebm)

C#m                         H
Hello Darkness, my old friend,
C#m
I've come to talk with you again,
E          A      E
Because a vision softly creeping
A       E
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
A                              E
And the vision that was planted in my brain
A      E   E/D# C#m E             H        C#m
Still remains           within the sounds of silence.

H
In restless dreams I walked alone
C#m
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
E      A         E
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
A        E
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
A                                         E
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
A       E    E/D# C#m
That split the night
E                  H       C#m
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw			C#m H
Ten thousand people, maybe more.			H C#m
People talking without speaking,			E A E
People hearing without listening,			E A E
People writing songs that voices never share	A E
And no one dared					A E ~ E/D# C#m
Disturb the sound of silence.			E H C#m

"Fools" said I,"You do not know			C#m H
Silence like a cancer grows.			H C#m
Hear my words that I might teach you,		E A E
Take my arms that I might reach you."		E A E
But my words like silent raindrops fell,	A E ~ A E E/D# C#m
And echoed						C#m
In the wells of silence				E H C#m

And the people bowed and prayed 			C#m H
To the neon god they made.				H C#m
And the sign flashed out its warning,		E A E
In the words that it was forming.			E A E
And the signs said, The words of the prophets	E A
Are written on the subway walls			A E
And tenement halls.					A E ~ E/D# C#m
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.		E H C#m
