lyrics

Sunflower, smile in earnest
upon your drooping face
and sweeping smile, what makes you so perfect?
You're, scentless, and pointless,
what is it about you that brightens my day?
how do you touch my soul with your innocence?

'Cos you can gaze at the sun with your feet firmly planted
but that won't stop the world from spinning around
It isn't so complicated
With your own to feet make your own way
She will come around again and again
Stand so tall and you might just fall, way too easily

'Cos I know that if I gave my life to you
I would be sheltered by your nearness
and spend my days dreamin' lazily
of open skies and gazin' blankly
as the world goes by
in peace I know, but wondering, maybe
how your soul touches mine, from worlds apart

'Cos you can gaze at the sun with your feet firmly planted
but that won't stop the world from spinning around
It isn't so complicated
With your own to feet make your own way
She will come around again and again
Stand so tall and you might just fall, way too easily

So, why don't you, why don't you,
Why don't you let it go this time?
Why won't you, why won't you,
Why won't you leave this all behind?
So, why don't you, why don't you,
Why don't you let it go this time?

'Cos you can gaze at the sun with your feet firmly planted
but that won't stop the world from spinning around
It isn't so complicated
With your own to feet make your own way
She will come around again and again
Stand so tall and you might just fall, way too easily
