Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics -> Latest Entries

"Rose-Colored Boy (2010s)" by Paramore
The Lyrics:
Just let me cry a little bit longer
I ain't gon' smile if I don't want to
Hey man, we all can't be like you
I wish we were all rose-colored too
My rose-colored boy
Why:
The song is about lead singer Hayley Williams' pessimism towards life. The hook illustrates that after faking happiness for such a long time, she can't hold it in anymore and gives into her emotions. A lot of the songs on After Laughter have this concept and could go with this theme of "upbeat yet depressing" as well.
