Elvis Costello - "My Aim is True" lyrics

Oh it's so funny to be seeing you after so long, girl.
And with the way you look I understand
that you are not impressed.
But I heard you let that little friend of mine
I'm not going to get too sentimental
take off your party dress.
I only know it isn't mine.
like those other sticky valentines,
cause I don't know if you've been loving somebody.

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

Well I see you've got a husband now.
Did he leave your pretty fingers lying
You used to hold him right in your hand.
in the wedding cake'
I'll bet he took all he could take.
Sometimes I wish that I could stop you from talking
cause I can't stand to see you this way.
when I hear the silly things that you say.

I think somebody better put out the big light,
Alison, I know this world is killing you.
Oh, Alison, my aim is true.
My aim is true
