Paramore - Misery Business

The manic energy of the party returns with this song! “It just feels so good!” Okay, that’s not really where the story starts. The narrator is, after all, “in the business of misery, let's take it from the top.” Apparently her friend has a wandering eye. “She's got a body like an hourglass it's ticking like a clock.” After “eight long months she finally set him free.” Then our poor narrator is full of self delusion, “I told him I can't lie, he was the only one for me.” It gets worse, but the story does have a happy ending – she seems happy with the two-timer in the end, blaming the other girl for his weaknesses. Well, it makes for a great dance, even tho it’s fiction. Shoutouts for When It Rains and Let The Flames Begin. Paramore
