My love, she speaks like silence
Without ideals or violence
Doesn't have to see she's faithful
But she's true, like ice or fire

People carry roses
Make promises by the hour
My love, she laughs like the flowers
Valentines can't buy her

In the dime stores and bus stations
People talk over situations
Read books, repeat quotations
Draw conclusions on the wall

Some speak of the future
My love, she speaks softly
She says, "No success like failure
And that failure's no success at all"

Cloak and dagger dangles
Madams light the candles
In ceremonies of the horsemen
Even a pawn must hold a grudge

Statues are made of match sticks
Tumble into one another
My love winks, she doesn't 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 cold and rainy
My love she's like some raven
At my window with a broken wing
