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 build 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
Well i've heard the word 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 armour
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
