Lyric Spam... Song that reminds me of Elijah
They've been playing this (old) Dishwalla song on my radio station pretty frequently lately... and every time it comes up, it makes me think of Elijah Wood:

Artist: Dishwalla Lyrics
Song: Counting Blue Cars

Must have been mid-afternoon...
I could tell by how far the child's shadow stretched out and
He walked with a purpose
In his sneakers, down the street
He had many questions
Like children often do

He said:
Tell me all your thoughts on God

Tell me am I very far?

Must have been late afternoon...
On our way the sun broke free of the clouds.
We count only blue cars
Skip the cracks, in the street
And ask many questions
Like children often do

We said,
Tell me all your thoughts on God
'Cause I would really like to meet her.
And ask her why we're who we are.

Tell me all your thoughts on God,
Cause I am on my way to see her.
So tell me am I very far -
Am I very far now?

It's getting cold; picked up the pace.
How our shoes make hard noises in this place
Our clothes are stained
We pass many cross-eyed people
And ask many questions
Like children often do

Tell me all your thoughts on God
'Cause I would really like to meet her.
And ask her why we're who we are.

Tell me all your thoughts on God?
'Cause I am on my way to see her.
So tell me am I very far?
Am I very far now...
Am I very far now...
Am I very far now...

I just get this picture in my mind of him walking down the street, in his Converse Chucks sneakers, a little younger than he is now, eyes wide and innocent, thinking serious thoughts and asking random people about God. *S* But I need a better icon than the one I chose...

*goes to find a photo*

I couldn't agree with you more! That was the best acting I've seen from him since LOTR.
