Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again

Do an allemande left with the corner, dosado
Do an allemande left with the corner, weave the ring
And the vision that was planted in my brain
(still remains) Swing, promenade
Within the sound of silence


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) you square thru count me 4
Meet that corner, dosado
Swing thru and then the boys run right
Ferris wheel around that ring tonight
Center two pass thru, touch 1/4
You scoot back then you're gonna swing, promenade
And touched the sound of silence


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening

Allemande and weave
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
(Swing, promenade)
Disturb the sound of silence

The Sound 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

Lyrics by Paul Simon.
Recorded by Simon and Garfunkel.
