Silly Silly Things

There’s a lot of silly silly things
To be talking about
There’s a lot of willy nilly things
That seem shocking right now
Silly things like monsters
Silly things like kings
Silly things like moments
That coincidence brings

Silly things like love
And laughter
And life
And what’ll come after

Silly things like secrets
Silly things like rage
Silly things like whispers
And keeping yourself caged

Or being fools on the sand
Singing away the ache
There’s a lot of silly silly things
But the lesson that I’d take
Is that life’s awfully willy nilly
So let’s enjoy what it makes
