Sunflower - Post Malone ft. Swae Lee




The Experience: Fightin' for my trust and you won't back down... Lasting love is hard work but it's the only love worth having...


Music video: Sunflower follows Into the Spider-verse as Miles Morales lives his life - normal and otherwise - until a host of other spidermen, -woman, and -pig crash the party. A constant throughout the video is MJ as Spidey's sunflower.

The Meaning of Sunflower: The song starts with a man in and out of relationships: she was all bad-bad and callin' it quits now baby and crash at my place baby. Next up, one woman - the sunflower - hurting and needy: 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. Their next step is sex: some things you just can't refuse she wanna ride me like a cruise and I'm not tryna lose. But the relationship grows past that to mutual commitment and dependence. He's the constant in her life that saves her from crumbling or burning out: I think your love would be too much or you'll be left in the dust unless I stuck by ya. She's his light and joy: you're my sunflower. And she keeps that love alive - fghtin' for my trust and you won't back down - even when duty - it's out of my control - (in this context, the superhero kind) sends him out into danger's way - even if we gotta risk it all right now and I know I always come and go (and go).

Ask yourself: Are you dead set on fairy tale love? Or are you ready to roll up your sleeves and work for the real thing?

Soundtrack: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

LYRICS:


[Swae Lee]
Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy (ooh)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ohh (ooh)
Ayy, ayy
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ohh

Needless to say, I keep in check
She was all 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'm keepin' in check
She was all 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

And 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

[Post Malone]
Every time I'm leavin' on ya
You don't make it easy, no, no
Wish I could be there for ya
Give me a reason to go
Every time I'm walkin' out
I can hear you tellin' me to turn around
Fightin' for my trust and you won't back down
Even if we gotta risk it all right now, oh
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 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
Yeah
