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'm keeping 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)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Post Malone's song "Sunflower" tell the story of a turbulent relationship with someone who is described as a "bad bad". The singer seems to be struggling with leaving this person behind but also recognizes the toxicity of the relationship. The line "needless to say, I'm keeping her in check" suggests that the singer is aware of the other person's behavior and is actively trying to control it. Despite this, the singer acknowledges their own struggles, saying "callin' it quits now, baby, I'm a wreck". The chorus emphasizes the importance of sticking together, saying "you'll be left in the dust unless I stuck by ya," and the repetition of "you're a sunflower" and "you're the sunflower" suggest that the singer sees their partner as the bright spot in their life, even amidst the chaos.


Overall, the song seems to be about the chaos of a romantic relationship, with both parties struggling to navigate their feelings and the challenges of the relationship.
