Song Meaning and Background of Sunflower by Post Malone


On The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Malone revealed that he is a part of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. He also revealed that he wrote the song "Sunflower," which he also performs.

Another song snippet was published along with Swae Lee's announcement that he will be joining Malone on the track. Lee declared himself to be "very excited" for the music to be heard by others.


Spring Aspers, head of music and creative affairs at Sony Pictures, said that "Post and Swae have delivered a song that’s both heroic and emotional, which is exactly what a Spider-Man story needs. It’s anthemic, but also heartfelt — the perfect soundtrack for Miles to discover the Spider-Man inside himself".


Swae Lee stated "because it’s a movie placement [in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse]. The main character sings “Sunflower” and uses my vocals to calm him down in a certain situation—like my music was therapeutic for him".


The song reached the top of the Billboard 100 charts, along with debuting at number one in Australia, Canada, Malaysia, and New Zealand, "Sunflower" also debuted in the top ten in twelve other nations.


Lyrics for Sunflower by Post Malone


Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy (ooh)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (ooh)

Ayy, ayy

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

 

Needless to say, I keep a check

She was a bad-bad, nevertheless (yeah)

Callin' it quits now, baby, I'm a wreck (wreck)

Crash at my place, baby, you're a wreck (wreck)

Needless to say, I keep a check

She was a bad-bad, nevertheless

Callin' it quits now, baby, I'm a wreck

Crash at my place, baby, you're a wreck

Thinkin' in a bad way, losin' your grip

Screamin' at my face, baby, don't trip

Someone took a big L, don't know how that felt

Lookin' at you sideways, party on tilt

Ooh-ooh, some things you just can't refuse

She wanna ride me like a cruise

And I'm not tryna lose

 

Then you're left in the dust

Unless I stuck by ya

You're a sunflower

I think your love would be too much

Or you'll be left in the dust

Unless I stuck by ya

You're the sunflower

You're the sunflower

 

Every time I'm leavin' on ya (ooh)

You don't make it easy, no, no (no)

Wish I could be there for ya

Give me a reason to (to, to)

Oh, every time I'm walkin' out (oh)

I can hear you tellin' me to turn around (oh, oh)

Fightin' for my trust and you won't back down (no)

Even if we gotta risk it all right now, oh (now)

I know you're scared of the unknown (known)

You don't wanna be alone (alone)

I know I always come and go (and go)

But it's out of my control

 

And you'll be left in the dust

Unless I stuck by ya

You're the sunflower

I think your love would be too much

Or you'll be left in the dust

Unless I stuck by ya

You're the sunflower

You're the sunflower

(Yeah)
