Serena Ryder tells us
that this song is about an ex-boyfriend. When we asked if he knew the song was about him, she replied: "I'm sure he does. It's fine. We're cool."
Ryder goes on to explain that the song can have a more universal meaning: "That song, it's like, 'You're black and white, he's a little bit of red.' Really the essence of that song is about a balanced life, about not always seeing things as black and white. It's about allowing yourself to feel. And those lyrics, 'you're black and white, and he's a little bit red,' the imagery of blood or pain or allowing yourself to bleed emotionally and actually feel things. And to know that things aren't just cut and paste and cut and dry. Things don't have to be black and white. There can be middle ground. And you can be a lot of things. And that's what the song is truly about."
