Love Minus Zero/No Limit

My love she speaks like silence
Without pointing to something
She doesn’t have to say she’s faithful
Yet she’s true, like ice, like fire
Some are giving rings
Promise many things
My love she laughs like the flowers
Nothing can’t buy her, how expensive it may be

In the night and in the day
They discuss the situation
Give answers to every question
Know every meaning
Some speak of tomorrow
My love she speaks softly
She knows in failure lies winning
And failure is no winning at all

The bridge at midnight trembles
The confused country doctor is scenting
Bankers’ nieces educate themselves
Know to sing many songs
The wind howls like a hammer
The night is cold and wet, a crying shame
My love she’s like a raven
At my window with broken wings





Peter Töpfer
