LifeInLyrics - Silly Katy

These are the lyrics to the song "Silly Katy" from the Kaden Hollow album. It's a haunting song about a woman who is trying to feel her own worth. She struggles with loneliness and gender role expectations, and has had to guide herself through her life. Listen below.


For flame or praise, would you stand before them in chains?

Aunt Mattie swore you were nothing like her for your age.

No corn would grow by the old plantation in spring.

Beyond those rows, the river water left you numb and clean.


Silly Katy, where's your robe?

It's too damn cold to be out after sunset.

Silly Katy, don't let go.


All those boys on the square seemed anxious for your eyes.

Where years of hope leave a trace of anger...there you lie.

Within your bones, coursing bitter sunlight and rain.

For flame or praise would you stand before them in chains?


Silly Katy, where's your robe?

It's too damn cold to be out after sunset.

Silly Katy, don't let go.

Silly Katy, don't let go.
