Lana Del Rey - Video Games
Xah Lee, 2011-10-24
A beautiful song by new star Lana Del Rey (b1986).
Swinging in the backyard Pull up in your fast car Whistling my name Open up a beer And you say get over here And play a video game I'm in his favorite sun dress Watching me get undressed Take that body downtown I say you the bestest Lean in for a big kiss Put his favorite perfume on Go play a video game
It's you, it's you, it's all for you Everything I do I tell you all the time Heaven is a place on earth with you Tell me all the things you want to do I heard that you like the bad girls Honey, is that true? It's better than I ever even knew They say that the world was built for two Only worth living if somebody is loving you Baby now you do
Singing in the old bars Swinging with the old stars Living for the fame Kissing in the blue dark Playing pool and wild darts Video games He holds me in his big arms Drunk and I am seeing stars This is all I think of Watching all our friends fall In and out of Old Paul's This is my idea of fun Playing video games
The video is a bit repetitive. Also, what's with the flashing of American Flags one too many times? This is a love song, not in memory of JFK. Artistic theme of retro American culture, fine, flash flag once. But twice?
And if you check several of her songs on youtube, seems every video's got a American flag in it.
