{c:Verso 1}
[Dsus2]Hello darkness, my old [C]friend
I've come to talk with you [Dm]again
Because a vision soft[Bb]ly cree[F]ping
Left its seeds while I [Bb]was s[F]leeping
And the [Bb]vision that was planted in my [F]brain
Still remains[Dm][F]
Within the [C]sound of [Dsus2]silence

{c:Verso 2}
In restless dreams I walked [C]alone
Narrow streets of cobble[Dm]stone
'Neath the halo of [Bb]a street[F]lamp
I turned my collar to the [Bb]cold and [F]damp
When my [Bb]eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon [F]light
That split the night[Dm][F]
And touched the [C]sound of [Dm]silence

{c:Verso 3}
And in the naked light I [C]saw
Ten thousand people, maybe [Dm]more
People talking wi[Bb]thout [F]speaking
People hearing wi[Bb]thout lis[F]tening
People writing [Bb]songs that voices never [F]share
No one dare[Dm][F]
Disturb the [C]sound of [Dm]silence

{c:Verso 4}
"Fools" said I, "You do not [C]know
Silence like a cancer [Dm]grows
Hear my words that I [Bb]might teach [F]you
Take my arms that I [Bb]might reach [F]you"
But my [Bb]words like silent raindrops [F]fell[Dm]
And [F]echoed in the [C]wells of [Dm]silence

{c:Verso 5}
And the people bowed and [C]prayed
To the neon god they [Dm]made
And the sign flashed out [Bb]its war[F]ning
In the words that it [Bb]was for[F]ming
And the sign said "The [Bb]words of the prophets
Are written on the subway [F]walls
And tenement halls[Dm][F]
And whispered in the [C]sounds of [Dm]silence"
