It’s just about this guy I had been seeing and the way our relationship was at the time. It was a time in my life when I had let go of my own personal career ambitions and just enjoyed being with him at home when he’d come home from work and play video games. I’d write while I’d watch him. I think when I wrote that song I was just reflecting on the sweetness of it, but also the fact that there was something else I was longing for at the same time. Thematically, it feels personal to me. I wouldn’t have thought that that was the song that people responded to. That is why I get so emotional and happy when I sing it. Because it is a gift for someone like me. Melodically and thematically, Video Games is a perfect representation of me.
