Song Meaning of Flowers by Miley Cyrus, and what it is about


Miley Cyrus, Gregory Hein, and Michael Pollack wrote the song Flowers in January 2022 at Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood, California.


Pollack said: "We started with the chorus and, if I remember correctly, the lyric, melody, and progression started to form simultaneously. It's one of those 'circle of fifths's songs where the melody informs the progression and vice versa. It practically wrote itself."


Following its debut, "Flowers" was allegedly intended to be a reaction song for Cyrus's ex-husband Liam Hemsworth, according to a number of newspapers. They live in Malibu, California, and the song was released on Hemsworth's birthday.


The song was a huge commercial success, breaking numerous records, and it became Cyrus's most popular single. In both its first and second weeks, it surpassed the previous record for Spotify's most streamed song in a week. It also did it in 112 days, making it the fastest song in Spotify history to reach one billion streams.


It debuted at the top of the Billboard Global 200 chart and peaked at number one in 38 nations, including the US and the UK.


Song lyrics of Flowers by Miley Cyrus


We were good, we were gold

Kinda dream that can't be sold

We were right 'til we weren't

Built a home and watched it burn

 

Mm, I didn't wanna leave you

I didn't wanna lie

Started to cry but then remembered I

 

I can buy myself flowers

Write my name in the sand

Talk to myself for hours

Say things you don't understand

I can take myself dancing

And I can hold my own hand

Yeah, I can love me better than you can

 

Can love me better

I can love me better, baby

Can love me better

I can love me better, baby

 

Paint my nails cherry red

Match the roses that you left

No remorse, no regret

I forgive every word you said

 

Ooh, I didn't wanna leave you, baby

I didn't wanna fight

Started to cry but then remembered I

 

I can buy myself flowers

Write my name in the sand

Talk to myself for hours, yeah

Say things you don't understand

I can take myself dancing, eh, eh

I can hold my own hand

Yeah, I can love me better than you can

 

Can love me better

I can love me better, baby

Can love me better

I can love me better, baby

Can love me better

I can love me better, baby

Can love me better

I

 

I didn't wanna leave you

I didn't wanna fight

Started to cry but then remembered I

 

I can buy myself flowers, oh, oh

Write my name in the sand, mm

Talk to myself for hours (Yeah, yeah)

Say things you don't understand (never will)

I can take myself dancing, yeah, yeah

I can hold my own hand

Yeah, I can love me better than

Yeah, I can love me better than you can, uh

 

Can love me better

I can love me better, baby

Can love me better

I can love me better, baby (Than you can)

Can love me better

I can love me better, baby

Can love me better
