In the editor if you look at your button you will find in the inspector right at the bottom you will find a pause mode, this will probably be set to inherit, change this too process and then it will work when you pause the game.

It paused because when you use get_tree().paused, it pauses everything in the SceneTree UNLESS that object is set to Process on Pause Mode. Go to whatever object needs to move/activate while paused, go to the Inspector on right and set it to Process and it should work.

Process Mode

Pssst. Also, if you’re using any Control elements that cover the screen (like a ColorRect) make sure your mouse mode is set to pass.
