Verse 1

I watched from my window

The day that you moved in

I was barely six years old

And you were turning ten

And if somebody had a feather

They could’ve knocked me to the floor

I didn’t know what I was feeling

Just that I wanted to feel it more

Chorus

Hi, I’m the boy from the house next door

I’m not old enough but I could be yours

If you’d stop growing up

Slow up – I’ll get there

Hold up – I’m right here

In the house next door

Verse 2

On my first day of high school

You were starting senior year

When I asked you to the prom

I guess your answer  wasn’t clear

‘Cause who’s this guy pulling up to your house

In his sports car and his vest?

When  you just got all dressed up for me

Why’s he pinning a flower on your dress?

Chorus

‘Cause  I’m just boy in the house next door

I’m not old enough but I could be yours

If you’d stop growing up

Slow up – I’ll get there

Hold up – I’m right here

In the house next door

Bridge

And now runnin’ into you

Years after you left home for school

And then I – I went away too

I still feel the way I felt

So hopefully time moved on and time made

Less of a big deal ‘bout itself

Chorus

Hi, I’m the boy in the house next door

I wasn’t old enough but I could’ve been yours

Slow up – And I got there

Hold up – I’ll always be there

Like a house next door

Like the house next door
