I've written you one thousand love songs
None of which you'll ever see
I've sold my soul for you ten hundred times
Not that you could ever tell
I've sat with you and held your hand
Listened to you, wiped your tears away
Heard every mistake that she ever made
And I was always the girl that saved your friendship
But nothing more, I'm never anything more
Then just the goddamn girl next door
I think your name is scrawled upon my heart
Because I can't just seem to let you go
Although our conversations hurt me
I keep on smiling, because I'd rather die
Than ever hurt you like she does
I'll hold back sobs, deny that's something wrong
And retain my place, my rightful role
As your favourite goddamn girl next door
Answering my phone in the middle of the night
I hear your fragmented voice on the other side
That it's over, all over
But you want me to fix it, again.
Swallowing my pride, I whisper in agreement
Playing the part of the goddamn girl next door
It seems like you can't see my other side
Or maybe you don't want to
Could that be a possibility?
That you prefer me as the goddamn girl next door?
I see you together, and you're oh so happy
And the goddamn girl next door is bleeding out.
