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 then
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
Because of me
It's because of me

She was right next door and
I'm such a strong persuader
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, woah, oh

At daybreak, I hear him
Pack 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
Because of me, yeah

She was right next door and
I'm such a strong persuader
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, yeah
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
