Oh it's so funny to be seeing you after so long, now
The way you look I understand
That you were not impressed
I heard you let that little friend of mine
Take off your party dress
I'm not going to get too sentimental
Like those other sticky valentines
'Cause I don't know if you've were loving some body
I only know it isn't mine
Alison, I know this world is killing you
Alison, my aim is true

I see you've got a husband now
Did he leave your pretty fingers lying
In the wedding cake?
You used to hold him right in your hand
I'll bet he took all that he could take
Sometimes I wish that I could stop you from talking
When I hear the silly things that you say
I think somebody better put out the big light
'Cause I can't stand to see you this way

Alison, I know this world is killing you
Oh, Alison, my aim is true
My aim is true
