I've known you since you were a schoolgirl
Saw the smoke turn to fire in your eyes
From the window of my room
I watched a young girl bloom
Saw the woman in you come alive

Watched you fall in love a time or two
I saw you get hurt once or twice
And you'd come running over, cry on my shoulder
Sometimes I'd get to hold you all night

There in my arms you'd lay soft and warm
You never felt the writing on the wall
You never knew how I wanted you
I was the boy next door, that's all
Just the boy next door, that's all

I watched you drift away out of my reach
I never got to hold you again
And here in my heart is the saddest part
We'll never know how it might have been

There in my arms you'd lay soft and warm
I sure love to catch you when you fall
But you never knew how I wanted you
I was the boy next door, that's all
Just the boy next door, that's all

Do you ever think about me, honey?
The boy next door, that's all
