Lyrics

Lyrics are property and copyright of their owners, and provided here for educational purposes only.

I can't stand it for another day
When you live so many miles away
Nothing here is gonna make me stay
You took me over, let me find a way

I sold my house
I sold my motor, too
All I want is to be next to you.
I'd rob a bank
Maybe steal a plane
You took me over
Think I'm goin' insane

What can I do
All I want is to be next to you
What can I do
All I want is to be next to you

I've had a thousand girls or maybe more
But I've never felt like this before
But I just don't know what's come over me
You took me over, take a look at me

What can I do
All I want is to be next to you
What can I do
All I want is to be next to you

All I want is to be next to you
All I want is to be next to you
All I want is to be next to you

Saw my doctor he said give it time
Got this feeling, gonna lose my mind
When all it is is just a love affair
You took me over baby, take me there

What can I do
All I want is to be next to you
What can I do
All I want is to be next to you
What can I do
All I want is to be next to you
What can I do
All I want is to be next to you
All I want is to be next to you
All I want is to be next to you
All I want is to be next to you
All I want is to be next to you...

Quotations and trivia

In 1982-09 Guitar Player Andy mentions using a slide for Next To You and It's Alright For You:

"Those are the only bits I've done it on. I had some very heavy brass slides made specially in England. You couldn't buy them. They're quite big. I like them becaues you get a lot more tone out of them. Next To You uses just the standard open E and G tunings. I was very into slide for a while. I also like open tunings, but I don't use them with The Police."
