Bob Dylan - "Love Minus Zero" lyrics

My love she speaks like silence
She doesn't have to say she's faithful
Yet she's true like ice like fire
People carry roses
Without ideals or violence
In the dime stores and bus stations
And make promises by the hours
Valentines can't buy her

My love she laughs like the flowers
People talk of situations
Read books repeat quotations
Draw conclusions on the wall
Some speak of the future
She knows there's no success like failure
My love she speaks softly

And that failure's no success at all
In ceremonies of the horsemen
The cloak and dagger dangles
Madams light the candles
Statues made of matchsticks
Even the pawn must hold a grudge
Crumble into one another
My love winks she does not bother
She nows too much to argue or to judge

The bridge at midnight trembles
Expecting all the gifts that wisemen bring
The country doctor rambles
Banker's nieces seek perfection
The wind howls like a hammer
The night blows rainy
At my window with a broken wingMy love she's like some raven
