Before being a song about what he lived with Liam Hemsworth, “Flowers” also talks about self-care, self-love and emotional independence.

In the first verses, the artist mentions the house that she lived with the actor and that was hit by the strong fires that took place in California, USA, in 2018:
We were good, we were gold
We were good, we were gold
Kinda dream that can’t be sold
Like a dream that cannot be sold
We were right ’til we weren’t
We were great until we weren’t
Built a home and watched it burn
We built a house and watched it burn
The chorus is also said to be a response to Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man”, which Liam Hemwsorth would have dedicated to his then-wife on their wedding day.
