Coming home used to feel so good
I'm a stranger now in my neighbourhood
I've seen the world at a faster pace
And I'm coming now, from a different place
Though I may look the same way to you
Underneath there is somebody new

I am not the boy next door
I don't belong like I did before
Nothing ever seems like it used to be
You can have your dreams but you can't have me
Oh, I can't come back there anymore
'Cause I am not the boy next door

You've been saving those souvenirs
Dated photographs from our foolish years
We made plans, but they're wearing thin
And they don't work out 'cause I don't fit in
And those memories will just weigh you down
'Cause I got no place to keep them uptown

I am not the boy next door
I don't belong like I did before
Nothing ever seems like it used to be
You can have your dreams but you can't have me
Oh, I can't go back there anymore
'Cause I am not the boy next door

I'm not sorry for just being me
But if you look past the past, you can see
That I am not
(You are not the boy next door)
(You don't belong)

Nothing ever seems like it used to be
You can have your dreams, oh but you can't have me
I can't go back there anymore
'Cause I am not,
I am not
I am not the boy next door
