Silly Me
I came in like a clown
Saw you and went blind
Suddenly it was the only thing I had on my mind

I wanted you
The two of you that night
Maybe it was wrong but you seemed to be alright
Seemed to be alright
Silly me, silly me...

Knew where I'd be
If I rang those bells
One foot in heaven and the other one planted firmly in hell

Hope springs eternal
It's my favorite flaw
You looked into my eyes and that's exactly what you saw
What you saw
Silly me, silly me...

I have no expectations
I heard you say
A good way to live
No disappointment that way

You left with her
As I came for you
Before my eyes I watched 3 turn to 2

In the house of mirrors
At the penny arcade
Love is a merry-go-round every time it's made
Every time it's made
Silly me, silly me...
