I never liked this apple much
It always seemed too big to touch
I can't remember how I found
My way before she came around

I tell everyone, I smile just because
I've got a city love, I found it in Lydia
And I can't remember life before her name

She keeps a toothbrush at my place
As if I had the extra space
She steals my clothes to wear to work
I know, her hairs are on my shirts

I tell everyone, I smile just because
I've got a city love, I found it in Lydia
And I can't remember life before

The day, she called up and came to me
Covered in rain and dinnertime shadowing
And as her clothes spun, we spooned
And I knew I was through when I said, "I love you"

Friday evening, we've been drinking
2 a.m., I swear I might propose
But we close the tab, split a cab
And call each other up when we get home
Falling asleep to the sound of sirens

I've got a city love, I found it in Lydia

From the battery to the gallery
It's the kind of thing you only see
In scented, glossy magazines
And I can't remember life before her name
