pentatonix – The Sound Of Silence chords

[Verse 1]
Em D Hello darkness, my old friend,
EmI've come to talk with you again,
C GBecause a vision softly creeping,
C GLeft its seeds while I was sleeping,
C GAnd the vision that was planted in my brain
G/F# EmStill remains
G D EmWithin the sound of silence.
[Verse 2]
DIn restless dreams I walked alone
EmNarrow streets of cobblestone,
C G'neath the halo of a street lamp,
C GI turned my collar to the cold and damp
C GWhen my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
G/F# EmThat split the night
G D EmAnd touched the sound of silence.
[Verse 3]
DAnd in the naked light I saw
EmTen thousand people, maybe more.
C GPeople talking without speaking,
C GPeople hearing without listening,
C GPeople writing songs that voices never share
G/F# EmAnd no one dare
G D EmDisturb the sound of silence.
[Verse 4]
DFools said I, you do not know
EmSilence like a cancer grows.
C GHear my words that I might teach you,
C GTake my arms that I might reach you.
C G G/F# EmBut my words like silent raindrops fell,
GAnd echoed
D EmIn the wells of silence
[Verse 5]
DAnd the people bowed and prayed
EmTo the neon God they made.
C GAnd the sign flashed out its warning,
C GIn the words that it was forming.
CAnd the sign said, the words of the prophets
GAre written on the subway walls
G G/F# EmAnd tenement halls.
G D EmAnd whisper'd in the sounds of silence.
