Here Are the Lyrics to Post Malone's 'Sunflower,' Feat. Swae Lee

Post Malone joined Swae Lee on "Sunflower" for the upcoming animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The two have previously worked together on “Spoil My Night” from Post’s beerbongs & bentleys album. The song has a dreamy but upbeat groove underneath catchy verses from Swae Lee. Post Malone comes in with a rap including lines like, "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." The rappers sing about a rocky relationship with their "sunflower."

Post teased the song on Oct. 8 during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, though fans were not aware of Swae Lee's involvement during that preview. The song was released on Oct. 19 and impressively debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. 

Check out the lyrics and video for Post Malone's "Sunflower" below. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is set to hit theaters Dec. 14.

Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy (ooh)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ohh (ooh)
Ayy, ayy
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Needless to say, I keep a 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' a 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

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
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 race, get off 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
