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 »

The night sets softlyWith the hush of falling leavesCasting shivering shadowsOn the houses through the treesAnd the light from a street lampPaints a pattern on my wallLike the pieces of a puzzleOr a child's uneven scrawlUp a narrow flight of stairsIn a narrow little roomAs I lie upon my bedIn the early evening gloomImpaled on my wallMy eyes can dimly seeThe pattern of my lifeAnd the puzzle that is meFrom the moment of my birthTo the instant of my deathThere are patterns I must followJust as I must breathe each breathLike a rat in a mazeThe path before me liesAnd the pattern never altersUntil the rat diesAnd the pattern still remainsOn the wall where darkness fellAnd it's fitting that it shouldFor in darkness I must dwellLike the color of my skinOr the day that I grow oldMy life is made of patternsThat can scarcely be controlled
