Why are you listening to all the things they tell you everday?
Why are you listening, what happened to your own mind anyway?
Why are you listening to their advice on what to watch and do?
Why are you listening, has your own mind been overrun - what do I do?
I don't know how they pulled you fast and buried all the trace of your past
I don't know how you left so fast - I really hope that this won't last.

Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley listen to me

What are you doing? It's been too long, I never even see you.
What are you doing? You're a different girl but I don't know who.
What are you doing? Fall asleep and disappear for days.
What are you doing? Come back flying in a total haze.
I don't know how they pulled you fast and buried all the trace of your past.
I don't know how you left so fast - I really hope that this won't last

Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley listen to me

What are you thinking? I suspect you're losing it for good.
What are you thinking? Promise I would save you if I could.
What are you thinking? I probably don't even wanna know.
What are you thinking? Please just say goodbye before you go.

Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley listen to me
