Eb a winter's day Ab Eb In a deep and dark December; Fm Bb Ab Eb I am alone, Fm Bb Fm Bb Gazing from my window to the streets below Fm Ab Bb On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow. Eb I am a rock, Bb Eb I am an is-land. Eb I've built walls, Ab Eb a fortress deep and mighty, Fm Bb Ab Eb That none may penetrate. Fm Bb Fm Bb I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain. Fm Ab Bb It's laughter and it's loving I disdain. Eb I am a rock, Bb Eb I am an is-land. Eb Don't talk of love, Ab Eb I've heard the words before; Fm Bb Ab Eb It's sleeping in my memory. Fm Bb Fm Bb And I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died. Fm Ab Bb If I never loved I never would have cried. Eb I am a rock, Bb Eb I am an is-land. Eb I have my books Ab Eb And my poetry to protect me; Fm Bb Ab Eb I am shielded in my armor, Fm Bb Fm Bb Hiding in my room, safe within my womb. Fm Ab Bb I touch no one and no one touches me. Eb I am a rock, Bb Eb I am an is-land. Ab Gm Eb And a rock feels no pain; Ab Gm Eb And an island never cries.
