Lyrics

Baby our love’s like an NES:

An 8-bit game and a soundtrack we can dance to.

 

This love is probably in my head and it’s a long-shot

But if there’s any hope I’m right, babe, I can’t stop

They’re in my head, the things you said, they put me on top

But you keep leaving me guessing if this thing’s real or not

 

And well I’m, the kinda guy, on the fly, to wait in line for your hand

Read mixed, messages, tell my friends. All of them shake their heads.

Maybe, I’m crazy, probably, but I believe it’s true

These eyes of ours say words we’d only speak in silent rooms.

 

And I don’t need a secret power-up to get to your heart.

Fire a hidden weapon or a Game Shark.

It’s the final battle. It don’t matter how many times.

Yeah I’ll save and reload, save and reload ‘till your mine.

 

Baby, your love is an adventure

And it’s all mine at the end of the game.

Don’t matter how many levels, it’s just a matter of time

‘Till I’m in your sight. Are you ready to play?

Because baby, baby, we’ll go out with a bang.

Storm that castle and set it on fire.

And I’ll reset, reset before it’s Game Over.

You are my arcade desire.

 

Baby our love’s like an NES:

An 8-bit game and a soundtrack we can dance to.

 

Sometimes I wish love was a level in an arcade

With a control stick and the buttons I know how to play

And like a pro I stop and start again and save my place

But there’s no player’s guide out there ‘bout how to beat your game

 

And well I’m the kinda guy, with a mind that never tried keeping calm

I loose sleep tryna keep this belief that you’re thinking ‘bout me

Maybe, I’m crazy probably but I believe it’s true

These eyes of ours say words we’d only speak in silent rooms.

 

And I don’t need a secret power-up to get to your heart.

Fire a hidden weapon or a Game Shark.

It’s the final battle. It don’t matter how many times.

Yeah I’ll save and reload, save and reload ‘till your mine.

 

Baby, your love is an adventure

And it’s all mine at the end of the game.

Don’t matter how many levels, it’s just a matter of time

‘Till I’m in your sight. Are you ready to play?

Because baby, baby, we’ll go out with a bang.

Storm that castle and set it on fire.

And I’ll reset, reset before it’s Game Over.

You are my arcade desire.

 

Because baby, your love is an adventure

And it’s all mine at the end of the game.

Don’t matter how many levels, it’s just a matter of time

‘Till I’m in your sight. Are you ready to play?

Because baby, baby, we’ll go out with a bang.

Storm that castle and set it on fire.

And I’ll reset, reset before it’s Game Over.

You are my arcade desire.

Because baby, your love is an adventure

And it’s all mine at the end of the game.

Don’t matter how many levels, it’s just a matter of time

‘Till I’m in your sight. Are you ready to play?

Because baby, baby, we’ll go out with a bang.

Storm that castle and set it on fire.

And I’ll reset, reset before it’s Game Over.

You are my arcade desire.
