Paul Simon, I am a rock




I am a rock

Στίχοι & μουσική: Paul Simon
Τραγούδι: Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel
Δίσκος: Sounds of silence (1966)


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'm 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



Επίμονα κόλλησε από νωρίς το πρωί στο στόμα μου για κάποιον ανεξήγητο λόγο.
