city love lyrics – john mayer

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 sp*ce
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 am, 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
