Torrini, Emiliana - The Sound Of Silence 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 dare
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 sign said, "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence

    Lodogg 3323

    George Lambert, she’s Icelandic... so...

  11. john blecker

    Her sweet voice sure adds to this song but after seeing Simon & Garfunkel perform during the 60s no one even comes close then in 1970 they stopped except for reunions.

  12. Brandon Pack

    Beautiful! I've always loved this song! It's more personal when it's relevant in your life♥

    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
    And 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 sound of silence”

    Sessizliğin sesi

    Merhaba eski dostum karanlık
    Seninle konuşmaya geldim
    Çünkü ahmakça korkuların sezisi
    Gece uyurken tohumlarını bıraktı
    Ve beynimde aşılanmış vizyon
    Hala daha
    Sessizliğin sesi duruyor

    Rahatsız edici rüyalarda yalnız yürüdüm
    Parke taşlardan oluşan dar sokaklarda
    Sokak lambasının halesinin altında
    Yakamı soğukluk ve kedere çevirdim
    Gözlerim geceyi ayıran neon ışığının
    flaşından saplandığında
    Ve sessizliğin sesine temas ettiğinde

    Ve çıplak ışığın altında
    On binlerce, belki daha fazla insan gördüm
    Ses çıkarmadan konuşan insanlar
    Duyan ama dinlemeyen insanlar
    İnsanların yazdığı ama asla katınılmayan şarkılar
    Ve kimse cüret etmedi
    Sessizliğin sesini kırmaya

    “Aptallar”, dedim, “Sessizliğin kanser gibi
    büyüdüğünü bilmiyorsunuz
    Sözlerimi dinleyin belki size öğretirim
    Uzanın kollarıma belki size ulaşabilirim”
    Ama kelimelerim yağmur damlaları gibi düştü
    Ve sessizliğin dalgalarında

    yankılandı
    Ve insanlar boyun eğip neondan
    tanrıya dua ettiler
    Ve işaret kelimelerindeki teşkili
    aydınlattı
    Ve işaret dedi ki, “Peygamberlerin sözleri altgeçit duvarlarında
    ve konut salonlarında yazılı
    Ve sesin sessizliğinde fısıldadı

  43. 李永攀

    Emiliana,I love you

  45. daniël Crisafulli

    I have the right after what happen to me to get my right

  46. daniël Crisafulli

    And I hear they stolen my money that was for me and that I can buy even a plain off this with a good life

  47. daniël Crisafulli

    I’m with nothing to late. What they do to me is illegal because the person that make this consp is long time ago not alive and want this only when nothing in my life is importend and they create a situation because I import music instruments and teaching music and Cellini every thing they need for the music instruments and I make music before they use the lies to that it is needed to put me in even fake clinics and this is the thru and that they hold Munson from
    Me always and make only lies about me to other country’s. Let stoo this they do because Idesurvecnit only for my self but for more people a normal life and for my son

  48. daniël Crisafulli

    What have my sister do. Because I hear that they put me in a clinic every time on the moment that some thing happen so that I not hear what is happen and when I go to the office more times they do not normal to me and don’t wanne hear me and they say that the people they do some thing maybe to dangerous and other peopleI hear say that my sister do some thing or hit my son and the other person say that my mother do some thing and no one tell me what is really happen and they put me every time when I ask what is happen in a clinic and play or I psychotic. And they do this more then eight years long to me. And later a hospital lie that I come not on visit for dialyse while this is not thru because other way they can all so not hold me with lies that I other wise not come because I never come not and the clinic hold me a time from dialyse to male agaom a lie that I psychotic and so they let me feel or I can nothing good when I do some thing in this country, WHY, this is discrimination only that my child’s mother is a jurist and this is what they wanne don’t tell that fathers with a jurist as mother off the child can happen every thing. When I can live normal again and can give my son love what he desurve ? Because I love my child and we desurve to live all so together what they hold to put me every time when there is a agreedment by justic to see my son, to put me in a clinic a month before I can speak to justic that the mother and other people even my neighbour hold my post and male lies about me as a women in a town next to me that friends more then ten years a go but she don’t stop to do crazy while I never come to here, and she come to my house to stolen things when I in a clinic for no reason and I hear that this things they give to people to do things or crimes with this and or this is really happen no one tell me this by I hear this from a radar or in conspire terms voice to skull but this not the real name. And I hear some times people say that it is a scandal how they do to me many years and to hold me away from the society’s to know what every one knows only me while it is about what they do to me and I hear that they wanne let me kill and
    Wanne blame for my life while I do nothing and never do something wrong. Why they do this and make my neighbour and on the other side make me afraid to hold me in my house

  49. Tuten Vanman

    Songs are for singing its in their name you are simply talking. How to ruin a song. You should be ashamed.

    Credit, please, to Paul Simon of Simon and Garfunkel who wrote this song.

  71. E.Askelsson

    Recorded for the musical show "Stone Free" in Reykjavik Iceland 1996. Emilina did also covers of White Rabbits, Lay down and Ruby Tuesday for the same show. 19 years old. I must say. What a voice!

  72. louise lemieux

    Your version is very interesting. So is your face. Thank you.

  73. Rubayyat Y. Wazed

    Melodies indeed

  74. Stephanie B

    Easily the best song Paul Simon ever wrote, one of the best ever period.

    Joshua Jewell

    It is definitely a stand out but I wonder is it the best he wrote? He has performed some wonderful stuff that he didn't write. He is an angel among us. I spent an hour looking for something better. Question: what would his 2nd best be?

    Ernest Money

    @Joshua Jewell "America" from the album "Bookends".

  75. Joseph Fitzsimmons

    This is such a risky song to cover. Well done, bravo madame!

  82. Stefan Hearst

    Ég elska ferska grúppu og bjarta kvenrödd Emilíana Torrini Davíðsdóttir frá Íslandi.  Hún er best þekkt fyrir hana 2009 einsöng  "Jungle Drum ", hennar 1999 plata Love í tíma vísindanna, og Frammistaða hennar  "Gollum ' s Song " fyrir 2002 myndina the Lord of the Rings: tveir Turnarnir.

    I love the fresh crisp and clear female voice of Emilíana Torrini Davíðsdóttir from Iceland.  She is best known for her 2009 single "Jungle Drum", her 1999 album Love in the Time of Science, and her performance of "Gollum's Song" for the 2002 film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
