It’s a poison for you and your partner because usually when you’ve reached the point of silence…
Or shutting down – and just not wanting to deal with your partner on any type of meaningful communicative way…
You’re in big trouble and could be headed for a break-up or separation.
Silence Can Destroy A Relationship!
Original Sound of Silence Live sung by Simon and Garfunkel
Lyrics and Meaning of The Sound of Silence …
This song is all about the inability of people to communicate with each other, and not particularly internationally but especially emotionally.
So that is what you see around you… is people who are unable to love each other, this is called the sound of silence.
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
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
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.
