    “Love can be a crazy thing. We run into it, we dance, we fall… blindly. And when it’s gone, all we do is hope for it to ever come back. Until we realize, mostly when it’s too late, that like a small town boy in a big arcade, we’ve been addicted to a losing game.”

    A broken heart is all that’s left
    I’m still fixing all the cracks
    Lost a couple of pieces when
    I carried it carried it carried it home
    I’m afraid of all I am
    My mind feels like a foreign land
    Silence ringing inside my head
    Please carry me carry me carry me home
    I’ve spent all of the love I saved
    We were always a losing game
    Small town boy in a big arcade
    I got addicted to a losing game
    Oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh
    All I know, all I know
    Loving you is a losing game
    How many pennies in the slot
    Giving us up didn’t take a lot
    I saw the end ‘for it begun
    Still I carried I carried, I carry on
    Oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh
    All I know, all I know
    Loving you is a losing game
    Oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh
    All I know, all I know
    Loving you is a losing game
    I don’t need your games, game over
    Get me off this rollercoaster
    Oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh
    All I know, all I know
    Loving you is a losing game
    Oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh
    All I know, all I know
    Loving you is a losing game

    SONG FESTIVAL 18 May 2019
    Duncan Laurence won the final of the Eurovision Song Contest with 'Arcade'. What is the song about?

    It is 2016 when Duncan Laurence is introduced to producer Wouter Hardy. During their first meeting, Laurence appears to have finished an early version of 'Arcade', but a lot of work still needed to be done. "I think we have made twenty different versions of the song," Hardy explains in an interview with RTV Rijnmond. "The way you hear the song on the radio, was certainly not what it sounded like the first time." For over two years the men have been working on the song in a small studio in Rotterdam's Maassilo. Producer Hardy admits it was not an easy path: "We could no longer see the wood for the trees, the song was a pain in the ass."
    Duncan Laurence explains: "The Swedish composer and producer Joel Sjöö, whom I met during a songwriting session, helped me to perfect the chorus, making the story even more intense. Thanks to producer Wouter Hardy, who draws inspiration from cinematographic music , I changed chords. " 'Arcade' was never written specifically for the Song Festival. "We really had no intention," says Hardy. As soon as it became known that the song would be used for the show, something had to be done according to Hardy: "I added extra drum parts and strings at the last minute. It really had to be perfect. You can't do it again, you must listen to this all your life. "
    The intimate love song is about someone with a broken heart who has a hard time finding happiness again. “I found that inspiration there, at that moment, in the story of a loved one; someone who died at a young age. She remained in love with the man who had left her until the end, "Duncan explains in an interview with Cornald Maas." Her death had a big impact on me. It was my first major loss and it still is. The song that came about then, I called "Arcade" - the words and chords, it seemed, came naturally from the heart. "It's a tough subject, but Duncan Laurence also wrote the song for inspiration:" From the life story of my beloved, I created Arcade for myself, a life lesson: you determine your own happiness. ”According to Duncan, the song was a quest, but he is happy with the end result. "In recent years I have written a lot for myself but also for others. It was really a search for what music I want to have outside. And this is a very nice start to the next phase," says Laurence in Aan De Slag !.

    The video clip of 'Arcade' was filmed underwater under the direction of director Paul Bellaart. Why water? "The surface represents the hope I describe in the song, the desire for something, the desire for love," Laurence explains in Bart's broadcast. "The first idea we had about the water. That spark came from the number. It seemed as if it was written for such images, "Bellaart explains." Dreamy when the song starts with a world that is not the world as we know it, but is of a different order. To be able to imagine that, it feels very much like we could do that under water. "

      Thank you. Can you tell the reason why you made that switch? Is that the story behind the song in combination with the simplicity and emotions of this song? Or is the text itself? Because music is always about emotions and this one is pushing and pulling even the deepest hidden emotions out of people.
