i am a rock lyrics – church

a winters day, in a deep and dark december
i am alone, gazing from my window into the streets 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 is 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 content me
i am sheilded in my armor
deep within my room, safe within my womb
i touch noone and noone touches me
i am a rock, i am an island
and a rock feels no pain
and an island never cries
