When You Die The Sunflowers Will Grow

When the Russians began to invade
They were met by the mothers of Ukraine
Bearing a gift and singing a song
Bearing seeds and singing along
 
The mothers sang please
Please take these seeds
Keep them close to your heart
And when you die the sunflowers will grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
 
One day the tyrants will fall
Such is the way of tyrants, one and all
One day the doves, they will fly
Over the flag of the gold and the sky
 
The mothers sang please
Please take these seeds
Keep them close to your heart
And when you die the sunflowers will grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
 
One day the red army will die
Under the flag of the gold and the sky
One day the red army will die
Under the flag of the gold and the sky
 
The mothers sang please
Please take these seeds
Keep them close to your heart
And when you die the sunflowers will grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
 
With the seeds and your blood and your bones
All over this land of my home
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
 
Thanks!

Submitter's comments:

"This tune is based on a story that I heard on TYT at the beginning of the war. A Ukrainian woman approached a Russian soldier and gave him some seeds. She told the soldier to put them in his pocket and that when he dies, sunflowers will grow all over her country. I thought that she deserved a song." – Zachary Friederich

Why did you post my incomplete lyrics? I posted them in the comments because a lot of words are missing.

Well, this is what the song is about - Russians stealing what is not theirs

When you die, the sunflowers grow
When you die, the sunflowers grow
When you die, the sunflowers grow

I don't hear a definite article when he says, ''When you die, sunflowers grow,'' so correct that in all instances the phrase is used

One day, the sirens will fly

It's really difficult to hear, but my best guess is he's just saying fly, though it would seem a bit weird since he's rhyming fly with fly, but there isn't really any other option

Such is the way of sirens ...

I fucking can't understand it at all.

over the ... of the golden sky

I think it's, over the plants of the golden sky

One day the Red Army will die

No definite article heard here either, should be

One day, Red Army will die

After he says, Wet the seeds in your blood and your bones, he then says, I'll love this land with my heart

Sorry I couldn't be of too much help, but I couldn't understand some parts of it. Go get a british person, they could maybe understand it better since I'm American.

When the Russians began to invade
They were met by the mothers of Ukraine

Please take these seeds
Keep them close to your heart
And when you die the sunflowers will grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
One day the tyrants will fall
Such is the way of tyrants, one and all
One day the doves, they will fly
Over the flag of the gold and the sky
The mothers sang please
Please take these seeds
Keep them close to your heart
And when you die the sunflowers will grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
One day the red army will die
Under the flag of the gold and the sky
One day the red army will die
Under the flag of the gold and the sky
The mothers sang please
Please take these seeds
Keep them close to your heart
And when you die the sunflowers will grow
When you die the sunflowers grow

When you die the sunflowers grow

All over this land of my home
When you die the sunflowers grow
When you die the sunflowers grow
