Less Than Three, An Original Song

Just a song about video games and love. That's all.
"Less Than Three" 
Written by Alicia Yeargin. 
Dedicated to Michael. 

What we've got is definitely more than some Mario and Peach story. 
Compared to us, their love is rather boring. 
We're like a duo made in pixelized heaven. 
32 bits from start to end 
To tell the world how we first became friends. 

There was a virus spreading fast.
I gotta admit, I didn't think we'd last.
Thanks to you, we both made it through
With the help of a green herb or two.
In our S.T.A.R.S. outfits we look pretty fine,
'Cause we're Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine.

The search is on at the Lakeview Hotel.
Our "special place" is pretty swell.
Up on that quiet hill, we show those guys
That true love never really dies.
We can make it through these crazy mind games
'Cause we're Mary and James.

[CHORUS]
It's a brand new kind of love,
The one I've always dreamed of.
We've got more than enough
To make it last year after year.
And like the way a hero shows no fear
I know you'll be there...while I'm here.

We met one day in City 17,
But those Combine folk were pretty mean.
A quiet scientist and a doctor's daughter
Doing our thing in some sewage water.
We have a much more subtle romance,
'Cause we're Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance.

We crash landed on a ring in space,
It turned out to be a hostile place.
Fighting Covenant, it was such a blur.
A headstrong soldier and a backseat driver.
Everyday, we caused each other mounds of grief,
'Cause we're Cortana and Master Chief.

[CHORUS]
It's a brand new kind of love,
The one I've always dreamed of.
We've got more than enough
To make it last year after year.
And like the way a hero shows no fear
I know you'll be there...while I'm here.

In the ever-changing land of Albion,
An unsung hero and a sweet maiden
Meet in a quaint, old pub,
After a few drinks, we fall in love,
Then see where the fates lead.
Life is a neverending adventure indeed.

Like a rogue from Vvardenfell,
You stole my heart, and well,
Also a septim or two.
I'd even surrender my exquisite shoes,
Just to prove that I care.
And I won't call the guards, I swear.

[CHORUS]
It's a brand new kind of love,
The one I've always dreamed of.
We've got more than enough
To make it last year after year.
And like the way a hero shows no fear
I know you'll be there...while I'm here.

What we've got is definitely more than some Link and Zelda story.
Compared to us, their love is rather boring.
We're like a duo made in pixelized heaven.
64 bits from start to end
To tell the world how we fell in love.
