Love Minus Zero/No Limit


My love she speaks like silence

Without ideals or violence

She doesn't have to say she's faithful

Yet she's true, like ice, like fire.


People carry roses

And make promises by the hours

My love she laughs like the flowers

Valentines can't buy her.


In the dime stores and bus stations

People talk of situations

Read books, repeat quotations

Draw conclusions on the wall.


Some speak of the future

My love she speaks softly

She knows there's no success like failure

And that failure's no success at all.


The cloak and dagger dangles

Madams light the candles

In ceremonies of the horsemen

Even a pawn must hold a grudge.


Statues made of match sticks

Crumble into one another

My love winks, she does not bother

She knows too much to argue or to judge.


The bridge at midnight trembles

The country doctor rambles

Bankers' nieces seek perfection

Expecting all the gifts that wise men bring.


The wind howls like a hammer

The night blows rainy

My love she's like some raven

At my window with a broken wing


Bob Dylan


There is nothing else one say about this. It’s as good as Dylan gets and it is just simply superb!


















Robert Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman 1941 - ) is an American singer-songwriter. Often regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Dylan has been a major figure in popular culture during a career spanning more than 60 years. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when songs such as Blowin' in the Wind (1963) and The Times They Are a-Changin (1964) became anthems for the civil rights and antiwar movements. His lyrics during this period incorporated a range of political, social, philosophical, and literary influences, defying pop music conventions and appealing to the burgeoning counterculture. In 2016, Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature ‘for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition’.
