Simon and Garfunkel I Am A Rock songtekst

A winter’s dayIn a deep and dark December;I am alone,Gazing from my window to the streets belowOn (a) freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.I am a rock,I am an island.I’ve built walls,A fortress deep and mighty,That none may penetrate.I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.It’s laughter and it’s loving I disdain.I am a rock,I am an island.Don’t talk of love,But I’ve heard the words before;It’s sleeping in my memory.I won’t disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.If I never loved I never would have cried.I am a rock,I am an island.I have my booksAnd my poetry to protect me;I am shielded in my armor,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.
