lyrics

Shipped off to University in September of '08
Already I'd begun to think I'd made a huge mistake
I found myself surrounded by drunks and drugs and worse
Good thing the girl from three doors down was who I spoke to first
Stranded in that unfamiliar town
I made a pact with the girl who lived three doors down

I knew that things would happen the moment she decreed
The only Who song that she knew was 'Love, Reign O'er Me'
We stayed up all night talking, she leaned in for a kiss
My naive mind misread the signs, I thought my chance was missed
My head was reeling, spinning round and round
I'd fallen in love with the girl who lived three doors down

With her auburn hair and bright blue eyes
She was equipped to draw me in
To a battle between two lovestruck hearts
That I was never going to win


Another guy cross-campus appeared upon the scene
Two polar opposites, two men that she was torn between
She finally made her choice upon a dark November night
When she took me by the hand and slowly led me out of sight
Kings of Leon were playing in the background
When I first made love to the girl who lived three doors down

With her auburn hair and bright blue eyes
She was equipped to draw me in
To a battle between two lovestruck hearts
That I was never going to win

The autumn term was over, Christmas came and went
She waited until January to make clear her intent
We sat and talked and both agreed to put aside what's passed
And stepped into 2009, hand in hand at last
I felt so high, I was walking on a cloud
I'd ended up with the girl who lived three doors down
