Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics, Paramore

Check out the index.

All We Know Is Falling album at
Paramore's, "Rose-Colored Boy (2010s)"
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
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.
