Sounds of Simon and Garfunkel

Lyrics

Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again

Because a vision softly creeping- Left its seeds while I was sleeping

And the vision that was planted in my brain - Still remains

Within the sound of silence

 

In restless dreams I walked alone - Narrow streets of cobblestone

'Neath the halo of a street lamp - I turned my collar to the cold and damp

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light - That split the night

And touched the sound of silence

 

And in the naked light I saw - Ten thousand people, maybe more

People talking without speaking - People hearing without listening

People writing songs that voices never share - And no one dare

Disturb the sound of silence

 

Fools, said I, you do not know - Silence like a cancer grows

Hear my words that I might teach you - Take my arms that I might reach you

But my words, like silent raindrops fell - And echoed in the wells of silence

 

And the people bowed and prayed - To the neon god they made

And the sign flashed out its warning - In the words that it was forming

And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls

And tenement halls - And whispered in the sounds of silence

Slow down, you move too fast. - You got to make the morning last.-Just

kicking down the cobble stones. - Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.

Bah dah bah, dah dah dah dah feelin groovy

 

Hello lamppost, - What cha knowing?

I've come to watch your flowers growing.

Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?

Doot-in' doo-doo,- Feelin' groovy.

Bah dah bah, dah dah dah dah feelin groovy

 

Got no deeds to do, - No promises to keep.

I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.

Let the morning time drop all it's petals on me.

Life, I love you, - All is groovy.

Bah….

When you're weary, feeling small

When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all

I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough

And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water - I will lay me down

Like a bridge over troubled water - I will lay me down

 

When you're down and out - When you're on the street

When evening falls so hard - I will comfort you

I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes

And pain is all around –

Like a bridge over troubled water - I will lay me down

Like a bridge over troubled water - I will lay me down

 

Sail on silver girl - Sail on by

Your time has come to shine

All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine - Oh, if you need a friend

I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water - I will ease your mind

Like a bridge over troubled water - I will ease your mind
