  • I am a Rock
    Simon & Garfunkle
    14 Aug 2003

    A winter's day-
    in a deep and dark December
    I am alone-
    Gazing from my window to the streets below
    On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.

    I am a rock, I am an island.

    I've built walls,
    A fortress deep and mity
    That none may penetrate
    I have no need of friendship
    friendship causes pain
    It's laughter and loving I disdain

    I am a rock, I am an island

    Don't talk of love
    but I've heard the word before
    It's sleeping in my memory
    I won't disturb the slumber of the feelings that have died
    If I never loved I never would have cried

    I am a rock, I am an island

    I have my books
    and my poetry to protect me
    I am shielded in my armour
    Hiding in my room, safe within my womb,
    I touch no one and no one touches me.
    I am a rock, I am an island
    And a rock feels no pain, and an island never cries
