Kyle McKenney This is such an awesome love song. Danny and Tori show a greater understanding of video games than many of the people who make them. This song weaves in more references to games to it's tale of love than I can even understand. It's chip tuney sounds and romantic lyrics are beautiful.

about

Our first big hit!

Inspired by the relationship between Tori and myself, this song plays on gamer culture, from the 8-bit sound samples and instruments to references to specific games, systems, game companies and more.

I am so happy and excited about how much support this song received way back when and continues to receive today. A special thanks goes out to Ryan Clements, Greg Miller and the rest of the IGN Podcast Beyond crew for their featuring the song in several episodes as well as their landmark 150th episode! You guys are awesome - thank you so much.

lyrics

Press Start... Press Start...

Girl, you know you've got my heart.
Player 2, Press Start.

I see a long and lonely road
From where I've been to where I am.
There's less incentive towards the end
Of each campaign.

But then you walked into the
Crosshairs of my sniper scope
And I knew, then, you were my lost hope.
There's only so much I could say;
My words get in the way
Only thing to do...

Won't you be my Player 2?
'Cause I've got a game I'd really like to play with you.
Girl, you know you've got my heart.
Player 2, Press Start.

I'll be your main artillery
If you would be my BFF.
While solo's how I used to be,
In clear 1080, now, I see that
Life is all just a game and I'm'ma play it
Cooperatively.

So, baby, won't you
Be my cover on the battleground,
Us back-to-back when we're surrounded.
We make quite the team,
Oh, yes, we do.
You and I could
Top the charts of every free-for-all,
Could fight the fight that means the world's survival.
Hot 'n' heavy until the end,
Because it's only me and you.

So won't you be my Player 2?
'Cause I've got a game I'd really like to play with you.
Girl, you know you've got my heart.
Player 2, Press Start.

You're my power suit. (My power suit.)
Cute like Pikachu. (Girl, I choose you.)
You are bomb like Hudson,
Jet Set like Beat.
You can Chu Chu Rocket rock it like
Nobody else I've seen.
You're my Final Fantasy, invincibility,
Worth more than all the coins in the
Kingdom to me.
Girl, you're more BA than any Master Chief.
Even hotter than a pre-release PS3.
You're my chocobo, you're my Pikachu,
my Daxter, my Companion Cube.
You take me higher than an airship over the blue.
I wanna share this overworld with you.

I can't hold on to my rings.
Boy, I'll be taking you high.
There's spikes in front of my springs.
I hope you're ready to fly.
And when a game's built for one,
I know just what we will do.
I say we double the fun,
And split 1-Player in two!

Won't you be my Player 2? (I'll be your Player 2.)
Everything I've ever done is suddenly brand new. (Everything is brand new.)
Girl, you know you've got my heart. (Oh, you have got my heart.)
Player 2, Press Start. (Player 2, Press Start.)

Won't you be my Player 2? (Boy, I'll be your, be your Player 2.)
'Cause I've got a game I'd really like to play with you. (I've got a game in mind, too.)
Girl, you know you've got my heart. (Oh, you have got my heart.)
Player 2, Press Start.

Player 2, Press Start.
