Sunflower

Post Malone, Swae Lee

 

Each chord gets two beats.

 

Strum: D   D U   U D U

       1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

 

/ D - -  - / - - - - / G - - - / - - - - /

/ Em - - - / - - - - / G - - - / - - - - /

 

 D

Needless to say, I keep it in check

She was all bad-bad, nevertheless

 G

Callin' it quits now, baby, I'm a wreck

Crash at my place, baby, you're a wreck

Em

Needless to say, I'm keeping her in check

She was all bad-bad, nevertheless

G

Callin' it quits now, baby, I'm a wreck

Crash at my place, baby, you're a wreck

 

D

Thinkin' in a bad way, losin' your grip

Screamin' at my face, baby don't trip

G

Someone took a big L, don't know how that felt

Lookin' at you sideways, party on tilt

Em

Ooh-ooh, some things you just can't refuse

           G

She wanna ride me like a cruise and I'm

not trying to lose

 

Chorus:

D

 Then you're left in the dust unless I stuck by ya

G

 You're a sunflower, I think your love would be too much

Em

 Or you'll be left in the dust, unless I stuck by ya

G

 You're the sunflower, you're the sunflower

 

D

Every time I'm leavin' on ya,

you don't make it easy, no, no

G                                                 

Wish I could be there for ya,

give me a reason to go

 

Em

Every time I'm walkin' out,

I can hear you tellin' me to turn around

G

Fightin' for my trust and you won't back down

Even if we gotta risk it all right now, oh

 

D

I know you're scared of the unknown

You don't wanna be alone

G

I know I always come and go (And go)

But it's out of my control

 

Chorus

 

/ D - -  - / - - - - / G - - - / - - - (hold) /

 

End
