    Lyrics:

    Sunflower in the morning
    Standing in the garden
    All before you wake

    No power can compel you
    Out into the daylight
    Let that evil wait

    Strange thought upon the pillow:
    “What day demands a date?”
    Well I don’t know

    Sunflower in the evening
    Standing in the garden
    Taking up that space

    No power can compel me
    Back into the daylight
    Let that evil wait

    Strange thought upon the pillow:
    “What day demands a date?”
    Well I don’t know

          Sunflower in the morning
Standing in the garden
All before you wake
No power can compel you
Out into the daylight
Let that evil wait

Strange thought upon the pillow
"What day demands a date?"
Well I don't know

Sunflower in the evening
Standing in the garden
Taking up that space
No power can compel me
Back into the daylight
Let that evil wait

Strange thought upon the pillow
"What day demands a date?"
Well I don't know

You know
