Video Games
Lana Del Rey Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 da bestest"
Lean in for a big kiss, put his favorite perfume on

"Go play your 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
And 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)

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)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Lana Del Rey's song "Video Games" depict a relationship that is driven by the shared enjoyment of simple pleasures such as playing video games, drinking beer and kissing in the dark. The opening lines paint a picture of a carefree summer day, with the singer swinging in the backyard and her lover arriving in his fast car whistling her name. They open a beer, and she takes off her clothes while he watches. She puts on his favorite perfume and leans in for a big kiss before telling him to go play his video games. The chorus repeats the message that everything she does is for him, and that being with him is like heaven on earth. She asks him what he wants to do and whether he likes the bad girls, to which he responds that it's better than he ever knew.


Throughout the song, Lana del Rey contrasts the romantic bliss she feels with the bleak reality of living for the sake of fame and watching friends fall in and out of love. Despite the simplicity of the relationship she describes, she sees it as the only thing worth living for. The final repetition of the chorus is accompanied by the exclamation "now you do," which implies that her lover has finally realized how much she loves him, and they can now be truly happy together.

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 favourite sundress
Watchin' me get undressed
Take that body downtown
I say, "You the bestest"
Lean in for a big kiss
Put his favourite perfume on
Go play your 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 wanna 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
And, baby, now you do
Singin' in the old bars
Swingin' with the old stars
Livin' for the fame
Kissin' in the blue dark
Playin' pool and wild darts
Video games
He holds me in his big arms
Drunk and I am seeing stars

@Clauder.

A música "Video Games" de Lana Del Rey é uma canção que explora temas de amor, perda e nostalgia. A letra é narrada por uma mulher que está apaixonada por um homem que não a ama de volta. Ela se apega aos momentos que eles passaram juntos, mesmo que eles tenham sido breves e fugazes.

A música começa com a mulher descrevendo o homem que ela ama. Ele é um "bad boy" que vive uma vida de glamour e excesso. Ela se sente atraída por sua beleza e seu estilo de vida, mas também sabe que ele é perigoso.

A mulher canta sobre os momentos que eles passaram juntos. Ela se lembra de quando ele a pegou no carro e a levou para um passeio. Eles passearam pela cidade, e ela se sentiu como se estivesse em um videogame.

Mas a felicidade da mulher não dura muito. O homem a deixa, e ela se sente perdida e sozinha. Ela canta sobre como ele a fez se sentir, e como ela está tentando esquecer o que aconteceu.

No refrão, a mulher repete a frase "Nós nascemos para morrer". Essa frase é uma reflexão sobre a natureza fugaz da vida. A mulher sabe que o amor dela pelo homem é impossível, mas ela não consegue desistir dele.

A música termina com a mulher cantando sobre como ela está tentando seguir em frente. Ela diz que vai se divertir e aproveitar a vida, mesmo que esteja sofrendo.

A música "Video Games" é uma canção melancólica e bela que explora temas universais de amor e perda. A voz de Lana Del Rey é um complemento perfeito para a letra, e a música tem uma atmosfera nostálgica que a torna ainda mais envolvente.

Aqui estão algumas interpretações específicas da música:

Amor fatalista: A música pode ser vista como uma história de amor condenado. O homem que a mulher ama é um bad boy, e ela sabe que ele não é confiável. No entanto, ela se apega a ele, mesmo sabendo que ele vai acabar a magoando.

Escapismo: A música também pode ser vista como uma forma de escapismo. A mulher está vivendo uma vida difícil, e ela se apega aos momentos que passou com o homem como uma forma de esquecer seus problemas.

Autodescoberta: A música também pode ser interpretada como uma jornada de autodescoberta. A mulher está aprendendo sobre si mesma e sobre o que ela quer da vida. Ela está percebendo que não precisa depender de um homem para ser feliz.

Em última análise, o significado da música é subjetivo e depende da interpretação do ouvinte. No entanto, é uma música que ressoa com muitas pessoas, pois explora temas que são universais e atemporais.

Espero que aprecie esta interpretação, que tem como objetivo o processo de desvendar o significado da música, levando a você uma compreensão mais profunda da obra.
