MUSIC VIDEO:

The music video for “Daisies” was released on May 15th, along with the song’s release. The music video was recorded at Katy’s house, two weeks before the release.

In an interview, Katy said there were other plans for recording the clip, but that were canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Actually, the music video was supposed to be something else, it was going to be recorded as soon as I arrived from Australia. It has a much more naturalistic approach than I wanted. I love my beauty squad, I love Hollywood, I love greatness! But none of that is available now.

LYRICS:
[Verse 1]
Told them your dreams, and they all started laughing
I guess you’re out of your mind ’til it actually happens

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m the small town
One in seven billion
Why can’t it be me?

[Chorus]
They told me I was out there, tried to knock me down
Took those sticks and stones, showed ’em I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy, but I’ll never let ’em change me
‘Til they cover me in daisies, daisies, daisies
They said I’m going nowhere, tried to count me out
Took those sticks and stones, showed ’em I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy, but I’ll never let ’em change me
‘Til they cover me in daisies, daisies, daisies

[Verse 2]
When did we all stop believing in magic?
Why did we put all our hopes in a box in the attic?

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m the long shot
I’m the Hail Mary
Why can’t it be me?

[Chorus]
They told me I was out there, tried to knock me down
Took those sticks and stones, showed ’em I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy, but I’ll never let ’em change me
‘Til they cover me in daisies, daisies, daisies
They said I’m going nowhere, tried to count me out
Took those sticks and stones, showed ’em I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy, but I’ll never let ’em change me
‘Til they cover me in daisies, daisies, daisies

[Bridge]
Hey, hey
Oh, cover me in daisies
Hey, hey

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m the small town
One in seven billion
Why can’t it be me?

[Chorus]
They told me I was out there, tried to knock me down
Took those sticks and stones, showed ’em I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy, but I’ll never let ’em change me
‘Til they cover me in daisies, daisies, daisies
They said I’m going nowhere, tried to count me out (Count me out)
Took those sticks and stones, showed ’em I could build a house
They tell me that I’m crazy, but I’ll never let ’em change me
‘Til they cover me in daisies, daisies, daisies
