"next", here, is not an adjective, nor an adverb. It is used as "preposition". I know you might feel strange, because if it is an adjective, then it shall NOT have "to" in front of me. "next to me" is a preposition phrase, used as an adverb to describe "lives". Let me give more examples:
The decision is up to me.
This little girl sits closely next to her mother.

This kind of double preposition is common, for example:
It rolls up under the couch.
He is over in the next town.
Suddenly he emerged from behind the curtain.
He walked out of the compound.
