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.

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.

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.

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

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

Aaron 98Gamer

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

Florida Gal

Rustin Holiday, I agree my friend, Paul wrote all the music and lyrics and without that there wouldn’t be anything! But I hold to my previous comment, Art did have an angel’s voice and in the beginning of their careers, Paul seemed to have written the music for Art’s voice.

Real music explains life's moments of wonder and simplicity in words and pictures. It speaks from experience and touches on memory and emotion. No one does it better them S&G!
