"Alison" as written by and Elvis Costello....
I thought I had my fill, but I'm tearing at the seam

the last time we'd meet, everytime I drink

I was passing through, waiting on your call

the smoke and the steam, dancing in the breeze



you were tamed by that island, 'cause the top seemed so far

you used to take the R, summer of '04

beautiful blonde hair, a spot picked by me

a Siren on the beach, a Riker's Island queen



oh, you went too far, I must have got it wrong

the track marks on your arms, the nights you don't sleep

I can't sleep, we won't sleep

all the pills you hide beneath...

all the boys you hide beneath...
