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

Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence
