We met on a rooftop swimming up for oxygen
It overlooked the Sunset but we faced the other way
It was cold but her voice was shot and downstairs they were packing it in
So we toughed it out placing bets on jets as they rose above the bay

And I was gonna bring her apples
When she was in need
After I'd sucked the cyanide from the seeds
I was gonna bring her apples

There were complaints and the police came
But we left no shred of proof
And as we leapt from roof to roof she said she'd be my alibi
And when I said I'd do the same she just smiled
And said she wasn't the type to get caught
But when I kissed her forehead it was hot
And she was shivering against the night sky

And now I'm gonna bring her apples
When she's in need
After I suck the cyanide from the seeds
I'm gonna bring her apples

I'm not trying to change you

We met on a rooftop swimming up for oxygen
It overlooked the Sunset but we faced the other way
It was cold but your voice was shot and downstairs they were packing it in
So we toughed it out placing bets on jets as they rose above the bay

I'll have extra air for you
Any time you start to drown
I'll keep you warm when the sunrise isn't reaching through your door
I'll give you a number to count up to when the plane is touching down
I'll bring you apples when your throat is sore
