Oh it's so funny to be seein' ya after so long girl
And by the way you look I understand that you are not impressed
But I heard you let that little friend of mine
Take off your party dress

I'm not gonna get too sentimental
Like those other sticky valentines
Cos I don't know if you were lovin' somebody
I only know it isn't mine

Alison
I know this world is killin' you
Oh Alison
My aim is true

Well I see ya got a husband now
But did you leave your pretty fingers lying in the wedding cake
You used to hold him right in your hand
But it took all he could take

Sometimes I wish that I could stop you from talkin'
When I hear the silly things that you say
I think somebody better put out the big light
Cos I can't stand to see you this way

Alison
I know this world is killin' you
Oh Alison
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
My aim is true
