“Video Games” by Lana del Rey

Unknown

I’ve used this song a few times at weddings for the bride’s processional and it truly creates a deep/powerful moment. The piano chords mimic heavy bells that ring in a slow and dramatic backdrop.
I promise this will have everyone feeling moved and choked up.
This line is my favorite: “Heaven is a place on earth with you…They say that the world was built for two, Only worth living if somebody is loving you”

Lyrics:
Swinging in the backyard
Pull up in your fast car
Whistling my nameOpen 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 downtownI 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

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

Now you do
Now you do
Now you do

Now you do
Now you do
Now you do

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

Now you do
Now you do
Now you do
(Now you do)
Now you do
Now you do
Now you do
