Simon & Garfunkel

Simon & Garfunkel were an American music duo consisting of singer-songwriters Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. They formed the group Tom & Jerry in 1957 and had their first success with the minor hit "Hey, Schoolgirl". As Simon & Garfunkel, the duo rose to fame in 1965, largely on the strength of the hit single "The Sound of Silence". Their music was featured in the landmark film The Graduate (1967), propelling them further into the public consciousness. more »

I'm sitting in the railway stationGot a ticket to my destinationOn a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in handAnd every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man bandHomeward boundI wish I wasHomeward boundHome where my thought's escapingHome where my music's playingHome where my love lies waitingSilently for meEvery day's an endless streamOf cigarettes and magazinesAnd each town looks the same to me the movies and the factoriesAnd every stranger's face I see reminds me that I long to beHomeward boundI wish I wasHomeward boundHome where my thought's escapingHome where my music's playingHome where my love lies waitingSilently for meTonight I'll sing my songs againI'll play the game and pretendBut all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrityLike emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort meHomeward boundI wish I wasHomeward boundHome where my thought's escapingHome where my music's playingHome where my love lies waitingSilently for meSilently for me
