Rex Orange County - Sunflower

Oh, I want to know
Where I can go
When you're not around
And I'm feeling down
So won't you stay for a moment
So I can say
I, I need you so
'Cause right now you know
That nothing here's new
And I'm obsessed with you
Then I fell to the ground
And you smiled at me and said

[Verse 1]
I don't wanna see you cry
You don't have to feel this emptiness
She said I love you til' the day that I die
Well, maybe she's right
'Cause I don't wanna feel like I'm not me
And to be honest I don't even know why
I let myself get down in the first place

Tryna keep my mind at bay
Sunflower still grows at night
Waiting for a minute 'til the sun's seen through my eyes
Make it down down, do-down-down
Diggy dig down, du du du du
Waiting for a minute 'til the sun's seen through my eyes

“Sunflower” is dedicated to Rex’s former girlfriend Thea, who he previously lived with in South London. The song shows his complete infatuation and almost obsession for this girl. The metaphor is that she is a sunflower, which symbolizes her purity, beauty and delicacy. “Sunflower” was certified gold by the RIAA on July 31, 2020.
