THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE

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 turn 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 shared
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 sign said
“The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence

“No more rain in this cloud
No more rain in this cloud

My sunshine has come
And I’m all cried out
And there’s no more rain in this cloud

My sunshine has come
And I’m all cried out
And there’s no more rain in this cloud

There’s no hiding place
When someone has hurt you
It’s written on your face, and it reads
“Broken spirit, lost and confused”
“Empty, scared, used and abused, a fool”
Oh, ain’t it funny that the way you feel
Shows on your face
(It’s written all over your face, yeah)
And the smile you used to wear
Seems a little bit out of place
(Tracks of your tears)
People oh, hold on
In time it gets a little better, whoa

My sunshine has come
And I’m all cried out
And there’s no more rain in this cloud

My sunshine has come
And I’m all cried out
And there’s no more rain in this cloud

So you want to live and to you I shall give
All the space that you requested
Hope you don’t live to regret it

So you say you’re in your prime
Baby, don’t waste your time
Remember my love, it’s only a thin line
(It’s never too late)

My sunshine has come
And I’m all cried out
And there’s no more rain in this cloud

My sunshine has come
And I’m all cried out
And there’s no more rain in this cloud

Spring has come and winter’s gone, my love
But don’t look around for me, child
I’ll be gone (I’ll be gone, gone, gone, gone)
Not afraid because the seasons have changed
I’m gonna count my blessing then just follow the sun
Cuz you see

My sunshine has come
And I’m all cried out
And there’s no more rain in this cloud

My sunshine has come
And I’m all cried out
And there’s no more rain in this cloud

(Now, I wanna take a minute to kick it like this
Y’all wit’ me? Y’all know what I’m talkin’ about?
You know what to do
There’s no hiding place
When you’re hurting
No, no, no)

Baby, don’t want teardrops
Drying up on my pillow
(I used to think the world of you)
Only room for raindrops
Don’t belong on my smile
(Baby)
And there’s no rain in this cloud
(There’s, there’s nothing I would not do)

Baby, don’t want teardrops
Drying up on my pillow
(You broke me down)
Only room for raindrops
Don’t belong on my smile
(You broke me way down)
And there’s no more rain in this cloud
(You you you, baby broke me down)

Repeat 1 while:
What goes around, comes around
What goes up, must come down
Things you do, come back to you
Y’all believe that?
Goes around, comes around
What goes up, must come down”

NO MORE RAIN

“I found out what I’ve been missin’
Always on the run
I’ve been lookin’ for someone

Now you’re here like you’ve been before
And you know just what I need
It took some time for me to see

That you give good love to me, Baby
So good, take this of heart mine into your hands
You give good love to me
Never too much
Baby you give good love

Never stoppin’ I was always searchin’
For that perfect love
The kind that girls like me dream of

Now you’re here like you’ve been before
And you know just what I need
It took some time for me to see

You give good love to me, Baby
So good, take this of heart mine into your hands
You give good love to me
Its never too much
Baby, you give good love

Now I, I can’t stop looking around
It’s not, what this loves all about
Our love is here to stay, to stay

Baby, you give good love”

“Embrace me
My sweet embraceable you
Embrace me
My irreplaceable you
Just to look at you
My heart grows tipsy in me
You and you alone

Bring out the gypsy in me

I love all
The many charms about you
Above all
I want my arms about you
Don’t be naughty baby
Come to me
Come to me do
My sweet embraceable you

I love all
The many charms about you
Above all
I want my arms about you
Don’t be naughty baby
Come to me
Come to me do
My sweet embraceable you”

“At last, my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clovers
The night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to rest my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Oh, yeah when you smile, you smile
Oh, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine
At last”

IMAGINE

“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace

You, you may say
I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

You, you may say
I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will live as one”

“You’re not the man who gave me everything
I’ve ever wanted

You’re not the man
Who stepped inside my life
And haunted every, every day

You’re not the man
Who said he’d never leave
Couldn’t breathe
And could not sleep without me

That was someone who you left behind
A long time ago

You’re not the man
Who would bleed for me
Never shed a tear
You’re not the one
Said he’d always be near

You’re not the man
Who threw me a lifeline
And you’re not the man
I am so proud to call mine

And you’re not the one
Who said he’d never leave
The one who made me believe in me
That was someone who could do no wrong
But you lost him

You’re not the man
Who would bleed for me
But never shed a tear
You’re not the one
Who said he’d always, always, always be here
Said he’d always, always be near

But don’t get me wrong
Although it seems sad
It’s not all bad
You see
I’m not the little girl I used to be

You’re not the man
Not the one
Who said he’d always, always, always be near

He was everything you see
He made me believe in me
Said he’d always, always, always be here”

SOMEONE LIKE YOU

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,”
Yeah.

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”
