Lana Del Rey – Video Games (2012)

 

 

Lana Del Rey本名Elizabeth Woolridge Grant1986年生於美國紐約。18歲時簽下合約,2008年以藝名Lizzy Grant發行首張單曲 Kill Kill》,因反應不佳使得專輯計畫暫時宣告中斷。然她不願就此放棄,2011年以新藝名Lana Del Rey轉往英國倫敦發展,新作〈Video Games〉好評如潮,接著並於今年發行首張專輯《Born To Die》。

 

Video Games〉描述女孩深愛對方,對方卻只將這段感情視為遊戲一般,為一帶有流行歌氛圍的感傷戀曲。Lana Del Rey的歌曲不僅有著深厚的敘事性,其人生故事更是成功的絕佳典範。

 

Video Games

 

Swinging in the backyard

Pull up in your fast car

     1.     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      2.    

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

     3.     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      4.    

Video games

 

He holds me in his big      5.    

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
