Hello Peter, my old friend
I've come to talk to you again...
About an album you aaare making
Why does it take you so long to sing?
It's been fiiiiiiive frikkin' years since you made US
We're only just
Listening... to the sound of silence.
In restless dreams I thought I heard
The sounds of Peter's golden words
But I knew that it couldn't be
It was only Levin and Manu Katche
And I'm tiiiiiiiiired of listening to Paula Cole
She's got no soul
To break the sound of silence.
In Real World Studios I said..
Will it happen before I'm dead?
Yes, I know I'm only seventeeen
But still I think about how long it's been
Please, could you hurry up a bit-
Or else I'll quit
Waiting in the sound of silence
The doorway to a thousand
