I Am a Rock
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


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've heard the word 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

비정한세상

I Am a Rock
By Simon & Garfunkel
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 steep 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 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.

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, steep 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
Well, I've heard the words before
It's sleeping in my memory
And 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 🖤🖤

Un día de invierno
en un profundo y oscuro diciembre
Yo estoy solo
Veo de mi ventana las calles de abajo
Con una capa de nieve recién caída

Soy una roca
Soy una isla

He construido muros
Una fortaleza profunda y poderosa
Que nadie puede penetrar
No necesito amistad, la amistad causa dolor
Es la risa y el amor lo que desprecio

Soy una roca
Soy un isla

No hablo de amor
Pero he escuchado esa palabra antes
Duerme en mi memoria
No perturbaré el sueño
De sentimientos que han muerto
Si no hubiese amado
Nunca hubiese llorado

Soy una roca
Soy una isla

Tengo mis libros
Y mi poesía para protegerme
Me escudo en mi armadura
Escondido en mi cuarto, seguro en mi vientre
No toco a nadie y nadie me toca a mi

Soy una roca
Soy una isla
Y las rocas no sienten dolor
Y las islas nunca lloran

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
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 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

It took me 68 years to figure it out, but this is THE theme song of my life.
I’ve built walls
A fortress deep and mighty.
Don’t talk of love,
I’ve heard the words before,
IF I NEVER LOVED,
I NEVER WOULD’VE CRIED,
Hiding in my room
Safe within my room,
I touch no one and no one touches me
And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries.
PERFECT!!!

I loved Simon and Garfunkel when I was in my teens. I'm 68 now, and I still love their music.

@Beth Adelman Something wonderful is in store for us old rockers. I was a struggling actor back in the late 60s, but ultimately, earned a PhD in mathematics. What a switch.
