Swinging in the back yard
Pull up in your fast car
Whistling my name

Open up a beer and
Say get over here
And play your video game

Iґm in your favorite sun dress
Watching me get undressed
Take that body down town, honey

I say you the bestest
Lean in for a big kiss
Put his favorite purfume on,
Go Play your 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.

Singing in the old bar
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
He's drunk and I am seeing stars
This is all I think of
Watching all our friends fall
Leaning out of old cars
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 wit' 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
Maybe now you do

Maybe now you do

(Now you do)

    I personally think this song is describing how she does everything to impress him but like a video game he plays her then once he gets bored, he stops. Or she could be saying how he prefers playing video games rather than spending time on her. I love this song though!

    I don't know why i like this song so much and keep singing this all the time! The melody is so vintage and moody, and her voice is so sexy! I like her a lot!!

    I think it means she is going through the motions like you do when you play video games. Then in the chorus she goes on to explan why she is going through the motions and what she wants out of it and she expresses her doubts by questioning him.
