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. The repetition of the chorus emphasizes the idea that the two need to stick together and support each other in order to make things work.
