"White Is Red" as written by Jesse Keeler and Sebastien Grainger....
Frankie was a heart breaker
I didn't know it at the start
She was only 16
But she went and broke my heart

And she pulled up in her dad's car wearing white
She said she knew a place where we could hide
She didn't have a license and she told me I could drive
So I drove all night

Why don't you leave me, she asked that night
I said, I see, I didn't know the kid is mine
I'll never leave you, it isn't right
Let's stay together until the end of time

Oh now the white is red
Can't get it outta my head
Oh now the white is red

I heard that there's a place where we can go
Across the state there's no one that we know
Or maybe rent a place where we can stay
Where what we have will go along the way

Then Frankie turned to me, she looked me in the eye
She said that I looked tired, she told me she could drive
I pulled up to the station, walked through neon lights
Then she put her foot down, down, down, down

Why did you leave me alone that night
You took of racing, the kid is mine
You left me standing out on the yellow line
The daylights fading into the night

We cross the line
We cross the line
We cross the line
We cross the line

Oh now the white is red
Can't get it outta my head
Oh now the white is red

I don't know why she left, took off racin'
I ran down yellow line, red lights fadin'
She went left, double line, outta luck, outta time
I cover my eyes, I know she crossed the line

She crossed the line
She crossed the line
She crossed the line
She crossed the line
She crossed the line
She crossed the line
She crossed the line
She crossed the line

Oh now the white is red
Can't get it outta my head
Oh now the white is red

    My OpinionI assume they are a couple dealing with a pregnancy and abortion...

    My InterpretationNah, she crossed the double line, and she ran head on into another car. I don't think it was on purpose either, she didn't have a license and peeled out at high speed - probably just misread the situation to end up in a terrible accident. There wasn't any talk of abortion in the song. The guy was talking about staying with her and raising the kid the whole way - the talk about going to another state was just so they could start a new life.
