May 8: Bob Dylan Love Minus Zero/No Limit, London 1965 (Video)

bob dylan savoy hotel 1965

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
Make promises by the hours
My love she laughs like the flowers
Valentines can’t buy her

A Hotel Room
Savoy Hotel
London England
8 May 1965

Released on the DVD Bob Dylan – No Direction Home (Martin Scorsese), Paramount Pictures, 3 October 2005.

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 the pawn must hold a grudge
Statues made of matchsticks
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 cold and rainy
My love she’s like some raven
At my window with a broken wing

  1. Great to remind me that I have the DVD. Thanks, I will hear and see it once again on my player. It is Dylan in optima forma, amazing the beautiful words en melody.
