Do You Know Who's Living Next Door

Album: Here At The Mayflower (2002)
  • so many windows
    so many walls
    double lock-doors
    down carpeted halls
    somebody's crying
    somebody calls
    do you know who's
    livin' next door?
    here at the mayflower
    here at the mayflower

    at the corner of main
    and the road out of town
    the mayflower rises
    all battered and brown
    a city-block deep
    and a city-block wide
    how many stories inside?

    so many curtains
    so many locks
    eyes at the spy hole

    somebody knocks
    measuring morning
    on so many clocks
    do you know who's
    livin next door?
    right here at the mayflower
    right here at the mayflower

    you see there's aways a change
    all at once someone goes
    always new faces
    that nobody knows
    a panel left blank
    on the board by the door
    old lovers that meet like before

    so many voices
    so many names
    so many photos
    in so many frames
    mister I know
    you'll be glad that you came
    do you know who's livin'
    next door

    right here at the mayflower
    right here at the mayflower
    right here

    goin up

    welcome to the mayflower
    welcome to the mayflower
