Wednesday Morning 3 A.M.
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


I can hear the soft breathing
Of the girl that I love
As she lies here beside me
Asleep with the night

And her hair, in a fine mist
Floats on my pillow
Reflecting the glow
Of the winter moonlight
She is soft, she is warm
But my heart remains heavy
And I watch as her breasts
Gently rise, gently fall

For I know with the first light of dawn
I'll be leaving
And tonight will be
All I have left to recall

Oh, what have I done?
Why have I done it?
I've committed a crime
I've broken the law

For twenty-five dollars
And pieces of silver
I held up and robbed
A hard liquor store

My life seems unreal
My crime an illusion
A scene badly written
In which I must play

Yet I know as I gaze
At my young love beside me
The morning is just a few hours away

"Oh, what have I done,
Why have I done it,
I've committed a crime,
I've broken the law.
For twenty-five dollars
And pieces of silver,
I held up and robbed
A hard liquor store."

Some foolish, wrongful action followed by remorse... a theme that frequently comes into my dreams! These lyrics illustrate it so well.



渡邊浩

I can hear the soft breathing of the girl that I love,
As she lies here beside me asleep with night,
And her hair in a fine mist floats on my pillow,
Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight.


She is soft, she is warm, but my heart remains heavy,
And I watch as her breasts gently rise, gently fall,
For I know with the first light the dawn I'll be leaving,
And tonight will be all I have left to recall.


Oh what have I done, why have I done it,
I've committed a crime, I've broken the law,
For twenty five dollars and pieces of silver,
I held up and robbed a hard liquor store.


My life seems unreal, my crime an illusion,
A scene badly written in which I must play,
Yet I know as I gaze at my young love beside me,
The morning is just a few hours away.



Kaan Işık

[Verse 1]
I can hear the soft breathing of the girl that I love
As she lies here beside me, asleep with the night
And her hair, in a fine mist, floats on my pillow
Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight

[Verse 2]
She is soft, she is warm, but my heart remains heavy
And I watch, as her breasts gently rise, gently fall
For I know, with the first light of dawn, I'll be leaving
And tonight will be all I have left to recall

[Verse 3]
Oh, what have I done? Why have I done it?
I've committed a crime, broken the law
For twenty-five dollars and pieces of silver
I held up and robbed a hard liquor store

[Verse 4]
My life seems unreal, my crime an illusion
A scene badly written in which I must play
Yet, I know as I gaze at my young love beside me
The morning is just a few hours away



El Moumen Yassine

I can hear the soft breathing
Of the girl that I love,
As she lies here beside me
Asleep with the night,
And her hair, in a fine mist

Floats on my pillow,
Reflecting the glow
Of the winter moonlight.

She is soft, she is warm,
But my heart remains heavy,
And I watch as her breasts
Gently rise, gently fall,
For I know with the first light of dawn
I'll be leaving,
And tonight will be
All I have left to recall.

Oh, what have I done,
Why have I done it,
I've committed a crime,
I've broken the law.
For twenty-five dollars

And pieces of silver,
I held up and robbed
A hard liquor store.

My life seems unreal,
My crime an illusion,
A scene badly written
In which I must play.
Yet I know as I gaze
At my young love beside me,
The morning is just a few hours away.

Asleep with the night
And her hair, in a fine mist
Floats on my pillow

Of the winter moonlight

She is soft, she is warm
But my heart remains heavy
And I watch as her breasts
Gently rise, gently fall
For I know with the first light of dawn
I'll be leaving

All I have left to recall

Oh, what have I done,

And pieces of silver
I held up and robbed
A hard liquor store

My life seems unreal,
My crime an illusion
A scene badly written
In which I must play
Yet I know as I gaze
At my young love beside me
The morning is just a few hours away

Art Garfunkel definitely has the best voice, but the two singing together makes the sweetest sound. I truly love hearing their music.

Juro

Art had the voice, Paul had the brain

Steve Dawson

Their joint harmony was excellent.

Florida Gal

@BigTyroneDawg, the thing I most hate about it all was their falling out that lasted many years. I’m sure we missed out on some wonderful music because of that!

BigTyroneDawg

They almost sound like just one person with the best voice ever sometimes. It’s too perfect

TheHarmonicNinja

@Florida Gal Too bad the two don't perform together anymore since 2013. (And Paul Simon just Retired)

Solía oírla cada vez que me despertaba solo en casa, cuando extrañaba a mi madre. Ahora volví a vivir con ella y aún me encanta esta melodía dulce y triste a la vez.

This song makes me want to cry every time I hear it. It's so simple yet strong and I can feel the pain of the guy having to leave his love for who knows how long. Maybe forever? Beautiful but sad.

The glow of the winter moonlight hits me hard
