G A winter's day C G In a deep and dark December; Am-D7 - C G I am alone, Am - Hm7 Am - Hm7 Gazing from my window to the streets below Am - C D - On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow. C G - I Am A Rock, C D G Em G 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 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. Am7 = D7 G And the rock feels no pain; Am7 = D7 G And an island never cries.
