"Little Bit of Red" as written by Serena Lauren Ryder and David Bassett....
(Oh ooh)
Hey you, say you
Wanna start over again
Like I ever wanted it
To be any different
I've been watching all your colors fade
To blue

Said you'd come back
Like I wanted you, wanted you
Stop pretending everything's alright

Oh, baby blue, oh baby blue
C'mere I'm gonna smear another color over you
Get outta bed you little sleepy head
Your black and white needs a little bit of red,
Your black and white needs a little bit of red
(Oh ooh)

Couldn't handle
Pressure life had put'chu through
Thought you mighta bit a little more than you could chew
No, I don't believe it when you say,
I will make it up to you.
Said you'd come back,
Didn't want you to, want you to.
Still pretending everything's alright

Oh, baby blue, oh baby blue
C'mere I'm gonna smear another color over you
Get outta bed you little sleepy head
Your black and white needs a little bit of red,
Your black and white needs a little bit of red
Baby blue, baby blue

Oh, baby blue, oh baby blue
C'mere I'm gonna smear another color over you
Get outta bed you little sleepy head
Your black and white needs a little bit of red,
Oh, baby blue, oh baby blue
C'mere I'm gonna smear another color over you
Get outta bed you little sleepy head
Your black and white needs a little bit of red,
Your black and white needs a little bit of red
(Oh ooh)

    My InterpretationI think this song pertains to Canadian Politics, since Serena herself is Canadian after all.... Baby Blue is referring to our Conservative Minority government lead by the ever so enraging Stephen Harper. Blue being the colour of the conservatives and baby blue possibly a reference to the characteristic blank blue eyes of our very own baby faced Harper. He wants to change Canada and make it all over again, but really that's not our Canada, do we really want the change he's bringing?

    "I've been watching all your colours fade to blue" Canada is all about being eclectic and multinational. This is not a melting pot. But if harper gets his way, we become more like our US neighbour which he so revers. It's fine for the USA, but that's not canada. Also it could be refering to the bland-ness of the conservative party, conservative being the key here, so he's taken Canada and turned it into something thats boreing and not our true colour.

    So the singer decides it's time for a wake up call: get out of bed and wake up... I'm gonna smear another colour over you. She throws it out there, red representing either the Liberal agenda or Canada itself.... both more exciting than the black and white Torry's where things are so cut and dry.

    I also like the lines where she says "still pretending everything's alright" especially now that the government has been held in contempt and Harper seems to be just carrying on as though this is just A-okay.... "and no, I don't believe you when you say I will make it up to you." Harper came to my province making all kinds of promises and I gotta say, I'm not buying it either.

    This is a very rushed interpretation, clearly, but i really think this is a slam against the conservatives here in Canada.

    Song Meaninghmmmm swingdive88 ur closeee but i dont think thats quite wat the song means =/

    i actually really like it its really catchy but not in an annoying way

    i think its about a guy who broke up with her wen every thing was fine in his life but now that things are going bad for him and he's sad about it he's trying to get her back as if he never did anything wrong and everythings fine between them.


    Oh, baby blue, Oh baby blue - (the upset guy obviously)
    C'mere I'm gonna smear another colour over you
    Get outta bed you little sleepy head
    Your black and white needs a little bit of red, (shes pissed that he would try to come back like evertyhing is fine btween them so now she's letting him noe how angry nd hurt (little bit of red) he made her feel instead of the little black and white simple version he's trying to say happened)

    My InterpretationI think the narrator is fed up with someone not taking risks, just settling for the same old routine. She wants more excitement, more colour. She doesn't like that her friend settles and says things are fine when they're really not.

    My InterpretationI Hate this song. It is like my republican ex girlfriend is yelling at me. I always dress in bland colors and blue because it is suposto be a calming color, and I live in a blue state. Also i developed this germaphobia thing sinse I broke up with her and Ive been sleeping way too much to.
