lyrics

It’s been some time now
Before you leave the house
Wrap your scarf around your neck
Think about the girl you haven’t met yet

Headphones in your ears
The river’s frozen this time of year
Collar up to the wind
Wish you weren’t in love with your best friend

You’re working late when your friends are out
On your days off you don’t leave the house
You throw your clothes in the washing machine
It’s a quiet night for someone in the

Punk scene is incestuous
Your friend introduced to a friend of his
Now things are going your way
Everything’s seeming okay

And she’s beautiful
She’s mysterious
She goes to school
And she’s serious
She knows what colour theory is
But Shelby Shelby Shelby
Shelby Shelby Shelby’s not a punk

She might not live up to your demands
She doesn’t listen to hardcore bands
But don’t you have to catch your breath
Every time she talks with her hands
She’s catching flakes of snow
The coffee’s hot but you both feel cold
Still so many hours to go

This is just the first date
You know it doesn’t happen everyday
Maybe it’s time for you to say
You’re going to put your hesitations away

Cause she’s beautiful
She’s mysterious
She goes to school
And she’s serious
She knows what colour theory is
But Shelby Shelby Shelby
Shelby Shelby Shelby’s not a punk

You ran home, you left her behind
Realized you’d never be two of a kind

Was it something that she said?
Like your band sucks and punk’s dead
You can’t recall word for word
Maybe it was something you misheard

It’s been some time now
Before you leave the house
Wrap your scarf around your neck
Think about the girl that you

Met she never stood a chance
She was a victim of circumstance
Now she’s just a memory
Your biggest regret…
Shelby!

She’s beautiful
She’s mysterious
She goes to school
She’s serious
She knows what colour theory is…

She’s beautiful
She’s mysterious
She goes to school
And she’s serious
She knows what colour theory is
But Shelby Shelby Shelby
Shelby Shelby Shelby’s not a punk
