          |  A                                           |  E                                    |
Oh Its so funny   to be seeing you    after so long girl
          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
and with the way you look I understand that you are not impressed
          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
but I    heard you  let  that    little            friend  of     mine
          |D                                             |  E                                    |
             take    off     your         party   dress

          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
       I’m not       gonna get                   too     sentimental like those
          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
          other       sticky          valentines
          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
        ‘cause  I don’t know   if you are     loving       somebody
          |D                                             |  E                                    |
          I   only    know          it   isn’t      mine

Chorus

          |  A                                           |  E                                    |
              Alison
          | A                      B                    | Abm7              C#m    B   |
      I    know   this        world       is           killing         you  (oh)
          |  A                                           |  E                                    |
              Alison
          |  A                      B                   |  E                                    |
                  My            aim           is        true

          |  A                                           |  E                                    |
                Well I  see  you  got  a       husband    now
          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
Did he leave your pretty fingers       lying in the wedding cake
          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
              You  used  to  hold  him  right   in  your  hands
          |D                                             |  E                                    |
              But he took all he took all he could take

          |  A                                           | Abm7     -        C#m    B   |
         Sometimes  I  wish  that  I  could  stop    you from talking when I
          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
        Hear  those  silly  things   that  you   say
          |  A                                           | Abm7              C#m    B   |
                 I  think  somebody   better   put out the big lights
          |D                                             |  E                                    |
‘cause I cant stand    to see   you  this   way                            (Oh)

Chorus

          |  A                                           |  E                                    |
              Alison
          | A                      B                    | Abm7              C#m    B   |
      I    know   this        world       is           killing         you  (oh)
          |  A                                           |  E                                    |
              Alison
         ||  A                      B                   |  E                                    ||
                  My            aim           is        true
