It doesn’t matter where you’ve been – how far
It doesn’t matter how run down you are
Or if there’s nothing perfect left in your heart
No, it all means nothing, it all means nothing, it all means nothing at all, at all

I’ve told you every selfish lie I know
I’ve taken falls from dizzy heights - I’ve let go
But there is a simple truth to find below
Where it all means nothing, it all means nothing, it all means nothing at all, at all

I’m on the edge for you
Losing my head for you
I’m in the red for you
Tonigh, tonight
Until my hopes fall through
There’s nothing else I can do
I’m in the red for you
Tonight, tonight
I’m on a rescue

Love is a thousand shades of grey – and we know
There’s not a safe or certain way to go
But when we’ve seen all, uneasiness and hate, it will show
That it all means nothing, it all means nothing, it all means nothing at all, at all

I’m on the edge for you
Losing my head for you
I’m in the red for you
Tonigh, tonight
Until my hopes fall through
There’s nothing else I can do
I’m in the red for you
Tonight, tonight

Until my hopes fall through
There’s nothing else I can do I’m in the red for you
Tonight
I’m on a rescue....

    My InterpretationNow I didn't check out the video on youtube of her explaining the song because I don't speak danish, but I do agree that this is, in fact, a love song. But here's what makes it special to me: I always think of this girl who's telling her guy that despite his troubled past, she will love him still the same. She is willing to risk her own to devote it to loving him. Hence the the title "In the Red". Red to me symbolizes danger, yet she doesn't care. So this always led me to think that the guy has some sort of dangerous and dark past and being that now he's with her, he's sort of dragging her down with him...but she doesn't mind. She loves him.

    Quite romantic. Intense and romantic.

    General CommentI think this is just the most beautiful song I've heard for a long time. I love how sweet and slightly sad the lyrics are, and the emotion in them about wanting to be there for someone more than anything else. Great song from a great album.
