I Am A Rock

I Am A Rock

The Hollies

A winter's day in a deep and dark december
I am alone
Gazing from my window to the street below
On a freshly fallen , silent shroud of snow

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
Don't disturb the slumber
Of feelings that have died
If I never loved, I never would have cried

Chorus

I build walls
A fortress deep and might
That none may penetrate
I have no need of friendship
Friendship causes pain
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain

Chorus

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

Chorus

And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries

Chorus x 2
