Riff: Paramore – “Last Hope”

Apr 9, 2013

And the salt in my wounds isn’t burning any more than it used to/It’s not that I don’t feel the pain/It’s just I’m not afraid of hurting anymore

from Last Hope lyrics by Paramore

Hayley Williams confronts harsh, “cold reality” with a sense of acceptance, promising to not “push it.” It may be a more mature sentiment than “I stole your man, bitch,” but the new, “adult” Paramore struggles to find their own sound, as these anthemic gang vocals remind of fun.; [LISTEN].
