Right Next Door Lyrics

I can hear the couple fighting right next door
Their angry words sound clear - through these thin walls
Around midnight I heard him shout - unfaithful woman
And I knew right there the axe was gonna fall
It's because of me - It's because of me

I heard him shout who is he - she mumbled low
He said baby don't you lie to me no more
And I'm listening through these thin walls - silently
As he called out my name - I was right next door
It's because of me - It's because of me
It's because of me - It's because of me

Oh she was right next door and I'm such a strong persuader
That she was just another notch on my guitar
She's gonna lose the man that really loves her
In the silence I can hear their breaking hearts --- Ohhhhhhh

At daybreak I hear him back - and say goodbye
I can hear him slam the door and walk away
Right next door I hear that woman - start to cry
I should go to her - but what would I say
It's because of me - It's because of me
It's because of me - It's because of me

Oh she was right next door and I'm such a strong persuader
That she was just another notch on my guitar
She's gonna lose the man that really loves her
In the silence I can hear their breaking hearts
Oh she was right next door and I'm such a strong persuader
That she was just another notch on my guitar
She's gonna lose the man that really loves her
In the silence I can hear their breaking hearts
