Robert Cray – Right Next Door lyrics

I can hear the couple fighting right next door
Their angry words sound clear thru 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 thru these thin walls, in silence and shame
As she 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
Well 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 oh oh 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
Young Bob
She was right next door and I'm such a strong persuader
Well 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 *2
