Video Games and Tears

>> Friday, December 30, 2011

It's one of those days when I spend the entire afternoon eating gelato, sipping Bundaberg beers and sit in front of my laptop devouring fashion and design blogs. In one of the blogs I was reading, I caught an odd looking photo, nonchalantly clicked the play button and before I knew it, I was weeping.

And to think I was in the most perfect mood.

My gosh, Lana del Rey, what is with you and Video Games that can turn a perfectly calm person into a basket case? And I don't even have a reason to cry!


Swinging in the backyard
Pull up in your fast car
Whistling my name

Open up a beer
And you take it 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)

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


Have a listen and tell me you did not feel like your heart was plucked out of your chest and tied to a runaway truck like stones. And stuck with little pins.

The thing is, it kind of illustrates a major chunk of women today: that sector that believes that doing everything for a man would win them the man. I sure had that phase, a phase I wish I never have to go back to. If I could give an unsolicited advice to anyone who's reading, love has and will always be effortless. Sure, marriage is work and all that {what do I know, meh}, but I do know for sure that if we have to fight tooth and eye to be in that person's life, then maybe it's a one way thing. No one wants to be in a one way thing. At one point in our lives, we'd shake and ask ourselves why do we give everything? We don't want to be there with nothing more to give, do we?

Monkey see, monkey do. Men will find a way to pursue the things {and people} they want, you don't even need to lift a finger or make an excuse for his behavior.

Okay, saan galing yon?


Love, light and glitters!
