In Their Words: "'Black and Blue' is about that beautifully awkward moment when you're starting a new romantic relationship. Everything is all puppies and roses and unicorns and sunsets. Then you remember "Oh shit, I've got a lot of baggage!" and have to figure a way to rationalize all your flaws to this wonderful new person that all the mistakes you've made have been a blessing in disguise, that they've all led you to this one moment with this one person ... Or if that sounds too cheesy, I just really wanted to do a song with a reggae sample." -- Singer Shaun Hettinger
