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 sundress, 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

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) (x6)

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) (x3)
Now you do
(Now you do) (x3)

What is meant by "Watching all our friends fall in and out of Old Paul's"  

I thought it was a mistake on azlyrics. Does it mean Old St Paul's Cathedral? or is Old Paul's a bar somewhere.

I've never really thought about it before but thought it was something like 'loves', as in watching her friends falling in and out of love, but she's happy with the man she has

I think she's just talking about a classic bar or a pub. I imagine her friends are drunk and are just fumbling around the streets?

The first time I heard this song was on the radio. From the very first time I knew it: this is the song I'll play on my wedding.

this song makes my cry. it's kind of depressing, i think, that she wrote this song about a love so beautiful but it didn't even last. now all she can do is honour the love forever. oh my.

i can say from experience that when you are sitting next to a man you may possibly love while he just plays video games and you just sit there and think fuck, this is how she felt when she wrote the song, the song really makes a lot more sense. it's about helplessness and finding freedom in simplicity and humility. it's also beautiful poetry. the combination of images is unique and stirring.

I actually really relate to this song because I was developing some feelings for a guy in my dorm, and sometimes I'd watch him and a couple of other people play video games. I didn't play, but it was just kind of cute to watch him play and get excited. It's not Titanic-level romance, but it's just a very realistic romantic feeling doing something so mundane together.

 

Might have read too much into it, but that's what the song means to me.

It's nice that you can relate, the only ppl playing video games in my life are my brothers, no hot guys who I could fall for :derpna:

Although that might be because the daddies I go for are too aged to play video games....

makes it, i am happy she changed it
