Hey There Elijah (hey, there aren't that many 3 syllable guys names)

Hey there Elijah
What’s it like in Birmingham
I’m like a hundred miles away
But boy, you know, you’re still the man
I’m thinking of
There is no other I could love
Half this much

Hey there Elijah
Don’t you worry ‘bout the miles
You know each time that I get lonely
It’s still you that makes me smile
Like a kid
Remember all those crazy things we did
Way back when

Oh, it’s what you do to me

Hey there Elijah
I know each day is harder still
They say that we won’t go the distance
But we both know that we will
Just stay the course
We’ll reach that day we’re longing for
All that and more

Hey there Elijah
There’s so much I haven’t said
Sometimes it seems this life we’re living’s
From I book that I once read
When I was small
The girl with the prince in love would fall
It’s always better when he’s tall

Oh, it’s what you do to me

A hundred miles is pretty far
And I ain’t even got a car
I’ll walk to you cause there’s no other way

Our siblings still make fun of us
But we’ll just laugh along because
We know that they’ll be in our place someday

Elijah I just can’t blame you
If once this stupid song is through
You’ll never ever look at me the same
Because it’s lame

Oh, it’s what you do to me

Hey there Elijah
I won’t tell you not to miss me
Two more years till you are through with school
Then we’ll be making history
Seem like new
Don’t know where I’d be without you
We’ll go wherever we want to
Hey there Elijah, here’s to you
This one’s for you
