Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Tee Set's, "Ma Belle Amie"
The Lyrics:
Ma belle amie,
You were a child of the sun and the sky and the deep blue sea.
Ma belle amie,
Apres tous les beaux jours
Je te dis, "Merci. merci".
You were the answer to all my questions. Before we're through,
I want to tell you that I adore you and always do;
That you amaze me by leaving me now to start anew.
Ma belle amie I'm in love with you!
Why:
I had heard this song several times, thinking it might be a happy, upbeat love song. Then I was positively shocked on noticing for the first time the line "That you amaze me by leaving me now to start anew", which transforms the song into a lament over a lost love. A few other lines, in what I guess could be called the chorus, also somewhat betray the sadness of the song, bot those lines are harder to understand.
