RETRO? owh i'm lovin' it. ngeee
so, here's the lyric.
SOUND OF SILENT by SIMON and GARFUNKEL
Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you againBecause 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 streetlamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light, 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 shared, and no one dared
To stir the sound of silence
Fool, said I, you do not know, silence, like a cancer, grows
Hear my words and I might teach you, take my arms then 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'd made
And the sign flashed 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
many people give different meaning of this song.
for me, this song has a real deep meaning.
like an inner voice inside finally speak. it tell us how the loud voice that we heard everyday are still lonely and silent. people don't comunicate very well. if we can hear our inner voice and communicate with others emotionally, we can see how people are still unable to love each other. they are not trying to express their true feeling and yet they are unable to communicate emotionally with each other to know their true feeling. for silent is like cancer and it will grow and kill you next. so communicate! :)
many people say this is a depressing song but i think it actually depends on you. for me it has a good meaning.
if you don't like it. well, there's nothing i can do. but if you like it then, ENJOY. :)
too much X and O.
