Gabbie Hanna Dandelion – Breakdown

So, the beat is definitely not the usual Gabbie Hanna beat. But, it is a refreshing and welcome change. And as always, there’s always a message behind Gabbie Hanna’s music. So, let us try to decipher it.

Verse 1

When I was a little girl, my mama said to me
“What’s your favorite flower, darling? I’ll get you the seed.”
I said “Dandelion, Dandelion,” that one’s so pretty
She said, “Child, that one’s not a flower, that one’s just a weed.”

So, this seems simple enough. A little girl probably does not like the normal things like everyone else. Her choices are considered odd, and not relatable. A flower is obviously what everyone desires. While a weed is just considered a worthless burden meant to extract.


Oh, what a shame
Now it don’t look the same
Guess it don’t look the same
Oh, what a shame

I think this part refers to how now, it is so different. Because the thing her mother said was a weed, is what Gabbie Hanna relates to most. Thus, she is not the flower she was expected to turn out to be. Oh her music gets us all wound up!

Verse 2:

I still love those mellow yellow petals anyway
What’s that thing they say about a rose by any other name?
Then my fragile flower turned into a ball of grey
So I took a breath and made a wish and blew them all away

Gabbie Hanna, through her music, wishes to make people realize, in spite of whatever the world may feel towards her, she is not giving up on herself. She still loves herself enough to keep growing. She will keep improving by ‘blowing away’ all the negativity and intoxications from her life.

The last lyric goes;

So I took a breath and made a wish and blew them all away

Gabbie is making her mark and shoving everything that is not good for her away. And that is her way of feeling good about herself. Again, implying that Karma will make its way to those deserving, on its own.

The Chorus

Call me what you want
(Dandelion, Dandelion)
You can’t stop me multiplyin’
Pull me from the dirt
(Dandelion, Dandelion)
No you don’t want me in your garden
Dandelion, Dandelion
Dandelion, Dandelion
(Dandelion, Dandelion)

Okay so, this targets more on how everyone wants to have an opinion. Irrespective of the fact that the dandelion is a weed, it always continues to grow and multiply. So, in her music, Gabbie Hanna compares herself to a Dandelion. The YouTuber is always involved in one drama or another media gossip. Nobody really wants to keep her. Everyone just wants to use her for the way her name spreads.

That – is very extreme. I mean, I wasn’t expecting the song to be so expressive. Gabbie Hanna is a Genius when it comes to writing her music. Maybe her chords could have been better but, the track is amazing!
