I Am a Rock – Simon & Garfunkel

Filed under: Music and Videos, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 05:35


“I Am A Rock”

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


  1. This is one of my personal theme songs! “I have my books & my poetry to protect me” … that is SO me.

    • Hello SAQ. I read that the song was about loneliness. I am glad the song has meanings for you. Hugs
