Simon & Garfunkel - I am a rock
Tekst en muziek: Paul Simon
(1966)






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 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 have 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 books
And 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
