What does this Jens Lekman lyric mean – “You're a drop of blood in my glass of milk”?

You can hear a live version of the song here, if it helps: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNvePvMJY…

The entire lyrics are here: http://www.songmeanings.net/lyric.php?li…

It’s a sweet little song about getting his hair cut by a former Iraqi woman in her apartment. In the song, he says:

“Your hands are soft
your hands are soft just like silk
You’re a drop of blood
You’re a drop of blood in my glass of milk ”

I’m trying to figure out what he means by ‘a drop of blood in my glass of milk’ – what this is meant to symbolize or represent.

What do you think it means?

    Something that doesn’t belong, something that ruins everything

    Milk – Calm, complacent, homogenized
    Blood – Wild, alive, crazy

    Does that help?

    Maybe he means that the person hes talking about is someone who helps him feel more alive and gives him a tiny amount of excitement in his boring life.

    I suspect this line is loaded!
    “You’re a drop of blood in my glass of milk ”
    Perhaps – a drop of blood , a progeny!

    Do you remember what it felt like to be a baby?
