lyrics

We used to ride out to the ocean every Friday night
Just to get a glimpse of something bigger than ourselves.
We’d walk for hours along the sandy beach, skipping stones
Trying to find a little bit of life within these shells.
When the tide was low we’d walk out for a mile or so
Just to get some water between our toes.
Alexander, I knew your father well
Many moons ago.
Alexander…

We talked about you once or twice, thought we were looking into your eyes
But we were really just talking to ourselves
And I was crazy talking babies when I could barley even
See the sides of my own cell
So when he asked, I wasn’t ready, I said so
So he gave me the rest of my life
And drove off to Alabama
To make your mother his wife

Alexander…
I knew your father well
Many moons ago…

And I’ve known you for so long
I’ve loved you since before you were born
I've loved you for so long
And I've known you since before you were born
Alexander
