Insincere Song Lyrics:

"If Only"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I wanna need you
'cause I need to
be with you till the end
Why They're Insincere:
Taylor doesn't say "he needs her": he says "wants to need her". If we take this literally, he is saying that he wants to become a crippled, so he he will literally need her to assist him until he dies. Is there a chance that he actually meant it? No. So the lyrics are insincere.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Running Man"
The Lyrics:
Life isn't what it seems
Or something in a dream
That's not quite what i mean
I need to say goodbye
You think i didn't try
I'm not that other guy
I'm feeling so sad
Too bad for the running man
Cause he waits too long so he can't
Come back again
Too bad for the running man
Cause I'm right here waiting to help
That girl forget
Too bad for the running man goodbye
It's a very upbeat song but it's about a guy who likes a girl who is still hung up on a cheating guy (hence "running man")
Submitted by: Annie
The Lyrics:
You have your many relationships in this life
Only one or two will last
You're going through all the pain and strife
Then you turn your back and they're gone so fast

So hold on to the ones who really care
In the end they'll be the only ones there
When you get old and start losing your hair
Can you tell me who will still care?
Hanson's breakout hit was an uptempo, very danceable song with a catchy chorus. However, if you listen closely to the lyrics, you discover that the song's really an ode to fleeting relationships/friendships, which is kind of a downer.
