Little Bit is from her 2008 album Youth Novels. It is about being in a “friends with benefits” relationship. As it says in this lyric “And for you I keep my legs apart, and forget about my tainted heart”  She doesn’t want to be the first to admit that she is falling in love with that person. Lykke acknowledges in this song that she is just having sex with this person while trying to have no feelings involved. Being interested in someone but afraid to say it first for the fear of rejection is relatable to many people.

This video Gunshot is a song about dealing with an addiction to the point where it kills you, an addiction from love. This breakup ballad finds an anguished Lykke Li longing to get her lover back. This is also a moment in a relationship where you’ve fucked up knowing that some things you can never take back and it’s just gone forever.
