C D F C My love she speaks like silence, without ideals or violence, G F C She doesn't have to say she's faithful, Dm F G Yet she's true, like ice, like fire. C G F C People carry roses, and make promises by the hours, G F C My love she laughs like the flowers, Dm F G Valentines can't buy her. C G F C In the dime stores and bus stations, people talk of situations, G F C Read books, repeat quotations, Dm F G Draw conclusions on the wall. C G F C Some speak of the future, my love she speaks softly, G F C She knows there's no success like failure Dm F G And that failure's no success at all. C G F C The cloak and dagger dangles, madams light the candles. G F C In ceremonies of the horsemen, Dm F G Even the pawn must hold a grudge. C G F C Statues made of match sticks crumble into one another, G F C My love winks, she does not bother, Dm F G She knows too much to argue or to judge. C G F C The bridge at midnight trembles, the country doctor rambles, G F C Bankers' nieces seek perfection, Dm F G Expecting all the gifts that wise men bring. C G F C The wind howls like a hammer, the night blows cold and rainy, G F C My love she's like some raven Dm F At my window with a broken wing.
