'I am a Rock', Simon&Garfunkel

A winters 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.

Dont talk of love,
But I've heard the words before;
It's sleeping in my memory.
I wont 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.

I am a rock - Simon and Garfunkel

Se ás vezes é bom convencermo-nos que somos mesmo pedras, intransponíveis, ilhas desertas nas quais ninguém penetrará, hoje devo-te também a ti a certeza de que existe sempre algo maior à nossa espera...
