Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Hanson

3 Car Garage album at
Hanson's, "Mmmbop"
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.

Hanson's, "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")
