I loved you with a fire red, now it's turning blue

from Timbaland (Ft. OneRepublic) – Apologize Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Science Lesson

According to the laws of physics, when the same material is burning, a blue flame represents a more intense, hotter fire than a red flame. So when a fire turns blue, things are actually getting hotter!

The song appeals to the broader connotations of the colors: red it hot, blue is cool. So what’s meant here is that, over time, his love faded from a passionate fire into a dying flame.

But it’s still wrong.
