I saw you there
With your pretty blondish hair
Eating a breakfast burrito
You seemed so neato
So we took the bus down to the pier
Down on the sand
By the metal detector man
We looked across the bay
As the dolphins swam away
We held hands and just imagined

With tears in my eyes
You had to say goodbye
You had to go
You couldn't tell me why
You said something about you moving to Alaska

I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss you so much
Those hot summer nights won't last forever

I know you're gone and you can't come home
I'm so alone but I'll never forget about you

Dear Elizabeth, I hope you're doing well. I think its so awesome that you're out monitoring glacial patterns in some remote part of Alaska where no one can get a hold of you. I thought I'd try anyway

I understand
So I bought a krugerrand
I'll wear you near my heart
We'll never be apart
Now the heavens smile upon us
With tears in my eyes
You had to say goodbye
You had to go and couldn't tell me why
You said something about you living on an iceberg

I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss you so much
Those hot summer nights won't last forever

I know you're gone and you can't come home
I'm so alone, but I'll never forget about you

Dear Elizabeth, again I hope you're doing really good. I havent heard from you yet. But anyway, the wierdest thing I met your identical twin sister Liz the other night at a party. Wow she looks just like you. So trippy. Anyway she said you miss me but not to try to get a hold of you because you're really busy. And the wierdest thing is I guess she's joining you on the expedition. Wow that's totally cool

I'm gonna miss you
I'm gonna miss you so much
Those hot summer nights won't last forever

Dear Elizabeth and Liz, I hope you're doing well. Anyway I was at the mall and I met your identical cousin Beth. I didn't even know they had identical cousins and it made me miss you even more

*Brrrring*

Hello

Uh, hello is this Elizabeth

Yes it is

Elizabeth, its me Roger from the beach

Oh did I say Elizabeth? I meant, um it's Francine

Oh, um Francine?

Yeah Im watching their house while they're gone over in Europe

Europe? I thought they were in Alaska?

Oh did I say Ala-um? I sa, I meant Alaska yeah they're in Alaska. Well whatever Europe, Alaska its the same. Well mhm, well anyway they're gonna be changing this phone number so you probably shouldn't call here anymore. Ok? Ok. Bye.

Oh man...
