LyriXML: I Am A Rock (Simon & Garfunkel )

A winter's dayC
In a deep and dark DecemberF C
I am aloneC
Gazing from my windowDm Em
To the streets belowDm Em
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snowDm F G

I am a rockC
I am an islandG C Am

I've built wallsC
A fortress deep and mightyF C
That none may penetrateDm G F C
I have no need for friendshipDm Em
Friendship causes painDm Em
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.Dm F G

I am a rock
I am an island

Don't talk of love
Well, I've heard the word before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber
Of feelings that have died
If I'd 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 the rock feels no painDm G C
And an island never criesDm G C
