And it was you
I just wanted you to stay

from Daft Punk – The Game of Love Lyrics on Rap Genius


The narrator did not need his partner to stay, but still is left with a broken heart due to his lover’s abandonment.

He brings the line back to the phrase:

And it was you

To re-iterate that she is/was the game of love.

It’s also possible that the narrator might’ve fallen in love with this person without at first knowing and then after this she was gone he realizes this.
