"GIrl Next Door" as written by and Jared Drake Bell....
She may not be Marilyn Monroe
And she may not be the cutest girl I know
It's how she makes me feel not how she looks
One smile from her heart
That's all it took

The girl next door is not the girl next door
The girl next door is not the girl next door
The girl next door is not the girl next door
She's the girl I'd stay home for

If I had the courage I'd ring her bell
But if she answered what story would I tell
My window's become her picture frame
But this painting doesn't even have a name

The girl next door is not the girl next door
The girl next door is not the girl next door
The girl next door is not the girl next door
She's the girl I'd stay home for

She doesn't know that I'm breathing
She doesn't know that I'm alive
She doesn't know what I'm dreaming
When I see that she's turned out her lights
And does she see me like I see her
More than just the boy next door
More than just the boy next door

The girl next door is not the girl next door
The girl next door is not the girl next door
The girl next door is not the girl next door
The girl next door is not the girl next door
She doesn't know that I'm alive

    General Commentthis is my favorite song by him

    his girl next door who he has a crush on is probably not exactly a sweet & pretty girl next door type. but "its how she makes me feel, not how she looks" (love that line) she doesnt know he's alive and breathing, he spends all the time thinking about her, staring at her in his window like a "picture frame" andhas no courage to face her.
    its the most perfect song ever.
