Hello darkness my dear friend

Guess it's just the two of us again.

Time for thinking about some things,

The ones that keep me from sleeping.

All these thoughts so messed up and confused

Makes me think what's the use.

Within the sounds of silence.


My soul is restless and feels alone

The ones who understood are now long gone.

And the days, they just drag on so very slow

The side of me that no one knows.

But I try to keep the outlook nice and bright

but here within the dark of night

It's just the sounds of silence.


Thinking eases my weary mind

helps to put my cares behind.

Just not worry about the things I cannot change

and my life not try to rearrange.

To fit the needs of those

who are always on my toes.

Except during the sounds of silence.


The wrongs I see each and every day

and people look the other way.

If they ignore them they think they will go away

but alas, no, they are here to stay.

Makes me sad in so many many ways

don't worry about it people say.

But I do during the sounds of silence.


Try to think of only what is good,

and dwell on this I wish I could.

But these thoughts keep intruding in my mind

Wishing for a happier time.

When people can be good and fair and just

and honesty is truly a must.

To ease the sounds of silence.


Another night is almost through

and I still don't have a clue.

How to make it all seem right again

wish I could explain this to my friends.

But today, I will do it all once again

be there and help if I can.

to ease the sounds of silence.
