Annotations and Meaning

The song Sunflower delves into themes of infatuation and longing. The hypnotic state Wendy describes in the intro lays ground for the rest of the song that can be seen talking about being totally mind-blown by someone. In the first verse, Joy, Irene, Seulgi, and Yeri describe seeing someone hidden behind white clouds, symbolizing distance and unattainability. The lyrics reflect a feeling of awe and being rooted in a particular spot after seeing someone they admire. The pre-chorus by Wendy, Yeri, Irene, and Seulgi describes the pain that love causes when it remains unrequited and how one continues to look for that loved person, even in dreams—vividly described by breaking through the ground. The chorus, performed by all members, expresses the joy and intensity of these emotions. Those two lines are just repeated back-to-back, emphasizing how overwhelming and consuming the feeling is. In the second verse, Yeri and Joy give in that their lives are different, indicating unavoidable shadows. The mixture brings happiness and melancholy, which is what "pink smoke" means. The bridge gives an eternal feeling and love that crosses seasons and time. It focuses on the omnipresence of a lover in the speaker's life.

Personal Reflection

Sunflower by Red Velvet is a vivid example of how intoxicating infatuation can be. It captures in an authentic way the amalgam of elation, urgency, and impotence that must characterize falling head over heels for someone else. The similes with celestial and naturalistic elements, such as the sky and clouds, give the work a very touching and, at the same time, unreal impression, reflecting how these intense feelings can feel out of this world. Repeated here, the theme of being "hypnotized" implies a loss of control, which is quite common in strong emotions. The lyric describes feelings as both beautiful and painful at the same time, so it becomes relatable to everyone who has gone through unreciprocated love or great admiration.

Sunflower Song Lyrics

Sunflower by Red Velvet


[레드벨벳 "Sunflower" 가사]

[Intro: Wendy]
Hypnotized
You got me hypnotized
Ah-ah-ah

[Verse 1: Joy, Irene, Seulgi, Yeri]
Under the sky
내 맘 하얀 구름 뒤에
숨은 널 봤어
내 키를 훌쩍 넘기는 눈높이에
닿지 않는 거리
Oh, my God, oh, my God
눈이 부셔 넌 뭐지 oh, my God
땅에 발이 붙어버린 느낌
Honey, I give you my all

[Pre-Chorus: Wendy, Yeri, Irene, Seulgi]
손 틈새로 바라봐
Love is so blind, 밤이면
볼 수 없어 슬퍼도
꿈속에 널 찾아갈게 땅을 박차고
Oh-oh-woah-oh, wait for me
녹을지 몰라 난 너의 우주에선
You got me hypnotized
[Chorus: All, Wendy, Seulgi, Joy]
Ooh, wow, feeling so funny
Feeling so fun, fun, feeling so funny
Ooh, I'm 뜨겁게 loving
뜨겁게, love, love, 뜨겁게 loving
You got me hypnotized (You got me)
Spinnin' around and round (So hypnotized)
꼼짝 못 해
널 볼 때 hypnotized, honey

[Verse 2: Yeri, Joy]
Yeah, I knew, yeah, I knew, 예상했어
너와 내 세상은 다르단 걸
까맣게 번진 그림자도
피할 수 없이 퍼진
핑크빛 smoke

[Pre-Chorus: Seulgi, Irene, Wendy, Joy]
하늘 끝에 찾아온
황금빛 노을 이대로 (이대로, ah)
사라져 넌 신기루
In my dream, 너와 내 세곌 뒤집어 버려 (Hey, oh)
Oh-oh-woah-oh, you and me
낮과 밤 온종일 함께 날고 있어
You got me hypnotized
[Chorus: All, Seulgi, Irene, Yeri]
Ooh, wow, feeling so funny
Feeling so fun, fun, feeling so funny
Ooh, I'm 뜨겁게 loving
뜨겁게, love, love, 뜨겁게 loving
You got me hypnotized (You got me)
Spinnin' around and round (So hypnotized)
꼼짝 못 해
널 볼 때 hypnotized, honey

[Bridge: Joy, Wendy, Irene, All, *Seulgi*]
So don't wake me up
건너와 꿈이란 rainbow (한발 두발)
네 빛을 따라
Ride through space & time (*Over space and time*)
사랑한단 의미 같아 네가
모든 시간 속에 있어 around
Summer, autumn, winter, spring
온 세상 너야

[Break: Seulgi, Yeri]
Ooh, wow, feeling so funny
Feeling so fun, fun, feeling so funny
Ooh, I'm dreaming, 온종일
You got me hypnotized
[Chorus: All, Seulgi, Irene, Wendy]
Ooh, wow, feeling so funny
Feeling so fun, fun, feeling so funny
Ooh, I'm 뜨겁게 loving
뜨겁게, love, love, 뜨겁게 loving (Oh-oh)
You got me hypnotized (Fly with me)
넌 나의 세계야 (내 꿈이야)
Come and take me (Come and, take me)
난 네게 hypnotized, honey

[Outro: Joy]
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hypnotized, honey
Hypnotized, honey, yeah

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

[Intro: Wendy]
Hypnotized
You got me hypnotized
Ah-ah-ah

[Verse 1: Joy, Irene, Seulgi, Yeri]
Under the sky
Behind the white clouds in my heart
I saw you hiding
At a height way above me
An unreachable distance
Oh, my God, oh, my God
You shine so bright, what are you, oh, my God
I feel like my feet are stuck to the ground
Honey, I give you my all

[Pre-Chorus: Wendy, Yeri, Irene, Seulgi]
Looking through my fingers
Love is so blind, at night
I can't see, even if it's sad
I'll break through the ground to find you in my dreams
Oh-oh-woah-oh, wait for me
I might melt in your universe
You got me hypnotized

[Chorus: All, Wendy, Seulgi, Joy]
Ooh, wow, feeling so funny
Feeling so fun, fun, feeling so funny
Ooh, I'm loving so hot
Hot, love, love, loving so hot
You got me hypnotized (You got me)
Spinnin' around and round (So hypnotized)
Can't move an inch
When I see you, I'm hypnotized, honey

[Verse 2: Yeri, Joy]
Yeah, I knew, yeah, I knew, I expected it
That our worlds are different
Even the dark shadows
Spread uncontrollably
Pink smoke

[Pre-Chorus: Seulgi, Irene, Wendy, Joy]
The golden sunset arriving at the edge of the sky (Just like this, ah)
You disappear like a mirage
In my dream, you and I overturn our worlds (Hey, oh)
Oh-oh-woah-oh, you and me
Flying together all day and night
You got me hypnotized

[Chorus: All, Seulgi, Irene, Yeri]
Ooh, wow, feeling so funny
Feeling so fun, fun, feeling so funny
Ooh, I'm loving so hot
Hot, love, love, loving so hot
You got me hypnotized (You got me)
Spinnin' around and round (So hypnotized)
Can't move an inch
When I see you, I'm hypnotized, honey

[Bridge: Joy, Wendy, Irene, All, *Seulgi*]
So don't wake me up
Cross over, it's a dream rainbow (One step, two steps)
Following your light
Ride through space & time (*Over space and time*)
It's like the meaning of love
You're in every moment around
Summer, autumn, winter, spring
You're my whole world

[Break: Seulgi, Yeri]
Ooh, wow, feeling so funny
Feeling so fun, fun, feeling so funny
Ooh, I'm dreaming, all day long
You got me hypnotized

[Chorus: All, Seulgi, Irene, Wendy]
Ooh, wow, feeling so funny
Feeling so fun, fun, feeling so funny
Ooh, I'm loving so hot
Hot, love, love, loving so hot (Oh-oh)
You got me hypnotized (Fly with me)
You're my world (My dream)
Come and take me (Come and, take me)
I'm hypnotized by you, honey

[Outro: Joy]
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Hypnotized, honey
Hypnotized, honey, yeah
