well she fixes up her shirt, no she wouldn’t go for you
and she mixes up her albums cause she doesn’t like that order you do
and she loves a second way, hey, your first way is permanently through
and she’ll never want to go to the movie, the same one that you do

and if this love is superstitious then everything we did is on call
and if this love is gonna make it then maybe i should turn it up

and the girl nextdoor is cryin
i dunno what i want to do
nextdoor she’s cryin
let me go, let me go for you

well i watched as she moves from the bedroom to the living room floor
and i’ll knock on her door and tell her what i’ve been waiting for
and she’ll smack me upside the head, its a crazy scene
save your best for your own, thats how i want it to be

and if this love is superstitious then everything we did is on call
and if this love is gonna make it then maybe i should turn it up

well the girl nextdoor is cryin
i dunno what i want to do
nextdoor she’s cryin
let me go, let me go for you

i don’t want a new love
you, i don’t want a new love...

    General CommentI haven't heard much Howie Day but this is definetly a good song. My favorite along with "Falling in Love" I think the lyrics are pretty straight forward.
