about

Written by Paul Simon, this beautiful but haunting track was given a very different twist by the band #Disturbed. So, I thought I'd try something very different too!
I enjoy a challenge and this one certainly was! Great fun to put together. And the more I worked on it the more I appreciated the amazing talent of David Draiman. Guy can SING! I'm no rock singer, but I hope you enjoy my humble rendition.

Thanks guys!

Thanks Tim Waitt for the recommendation and request!

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 dared
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 signs said,
"The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence

I believe music should be felt as much as heard. I hope you feel the emotion in my arrangements & that it moves you as it does me.
Most of these songs I have arranged, produced & performed at home.
