Autumn, Emilie - Willow Lyrics




Willow, weep for me
Bow your tallest tree
Down to the infamous hands
Of someone no one understands

I'm not unique in this
It's based on none but my mistake
At night I lie awake
Thinking of all the hearts I'd happily break

It's cruel I know
At least they tell me so
Well someone lock me up and throw away the key
Because I'm not ashamed, oh no
Oh, willow

That I only write love songs
To those whom I don't love
I only reach for him
Who's tied to someone else's glove
That which I hold inside
Which I admire and deride
Which I protect and hide is yours

Willow, weep for me
Don't think I don't see
This life I'm living in two
But still it's something I must do
I'm not unique in this
Nor am I special, sweet or kind
I court a thousand smiles
Yet I keep my own to hide behind

It's cruel I know
At least they tell me so
Well someone lock me up and throw away the key
Because I'm not ashamed, oh no
Oh, willow

That I only write love songs
To those whom I don't love
I only reach for him
Who's tied to someone else's glove
That which I hold inside
Which I admire and deride
Which I protect and hide is yours

Slander and distension
They're parlor games to me
Papers overrun with lies too mad to mention
You say they never hurt you
No consequence, I'm happy
We're much too far above it all
But oh no, that's not true
These wicked pastimes take their toll
These tyrant vices break your soul
Deliver me from all I am
And all I never want to be

I love you (Oh willow, willow, willow)
Doubt me not
Rewrite this plot for all to see

And I only write love songs
To those whom I don't love
I only reach for him
Who's tied to someone else's glove
That which I hold inside
Which I admire and deride
Which I protect and hide is yours

Bend your branches to the ground and hold me close
Let me harmonize with all we knew
Share your sympathy and weep for me
Oh, willow, heal the hearts I've broken
Make me pure and start my song anew

For I only write love songs
To those whom I don't love
I only reach for him
Who's tied to someone else's glove
That which I hold inside
Which I admire and deride
Which I protect and hide is yours

Autumn, Emilie Willow Comments
  1. Nikh Beghzr

    Did M(r)s. Emilie Åutumn say-or-sing/* as-lyrics "I am special sleet", where "sleet" is a form of "rain" ... ?

  2. Clare Brennan

    she wrote this as a duet with morrissey but he said nah so she recorded it with herself

  3. Lieven Heirbaut

    Been a fan since I heard "Dead is the new alive"

  4. Witch

    this song, as many other of her songs and poems, are so perfectly fitting to my feelings and experiences in a time I thought something was wrong with me. Years later I found out I´m aromantic. Her lyrics fit so perfect to this part of me :)

    TheKatti5000

    Oh gods, I've been through the exact same. This song used to be so important to me, I'd always feel bad about myself. Then I discovered I'm aro-spec.

  5. Whackowitch

    This song describes my Venus in Virgo in the 12th house better than any other.

  6. ɧɛąཞɬცཞɛąƙɛཞ

    At night I lie awake thinking of all the hearts I'd happily break..

  7. Luci Cifarelli

    16 wrong opinions

  8. LiebeAlle

    I don't like all her music (you are incredibly unique, Emily, but some of the darker stuff is a little much for me :)... but oh my goodness. I hear a song like this now and then, and my heartstrings are deliciously pulled.

  9. Emily Kavanagh

    I wish I could find a copy of this song to download

    WonderMoon GlitterPixie

    u do realize there's lots of websites where u can download any song on YouTube for free right? like www.youtube-mp3.org

    s V

    +Emily Kavanagh search on google "youtube to mp3 converter" and click the first link. Copy the url of this video and then paste it into the bar on the page and follow the instructions from there

  10. Amelia Ruffolo

    when I first heard this song, I never thought I could act this way

    but now, as I look for a song to perfectly describe my current situation... this is the first thing that comes to mind

    guess I was wrong

  11. taliesin

    This reminds me of Madam Red
    Her love for Ciels father... then her sister takes him e.e /stabs the sister/

  17. Sapphyre Lorallen

    Does anyone know where I can find an instrumental/off vocal for this? I've tried looking but all of the one's I've found sound completely different.

  18. Magicalcutzi

    Sorry if this has already been asked, but when is this from? It sound like it's from the Enchant era but I'm not sure..

  19. Willow

    My name is Willow.

  20. suNnia 12

    This literally sounds like heaven

  21. Shelby Timco

  26. Raven Ried

  27. IHeartGameplay

    Aimini.net

  28. Alice .Red

    where can i find this song. I've looked on amazon, but it's just an instrumental mix

  29. Ruby Blue

    God only knows why she never released this, it's beautiful...

  30. Seolhe

    Yeah, it's a completely different song. Willow on Laced/Unlaced is an instrumental violin track.

  31. MouthOfTheUnknown

    i looked it up and there's a song called Willow on Laced/Unlaced. does that mean its a different version??

  32. Seolhe

    It was never released on an album, and the closest to this style would be her album Enchant.

  33. MouthOfTheUnknown

    what album is this on, and which album of hers has the most songs that sounds like this?

  34. MouthOfTheUnknown

    i can hear an influence sometimes in the melody :)

  35. Apropos Pothos

    is it depeche mode - somebody i can hear there?

  36. Plaguerat69

    Ich liebe Emilie Autumn so sehr.
    Jedes ihrer Lieder ist ein Kunstwerk für sich. <3

  37. Leihua Kamakahi

    and then i was like what dislikes

  38. Quistys

    Sorry, I found the pic years ago... Try photobucket...

  39. A Stone Angel

    can you send me the link for the picture please?

  40. ghosturiel

    Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.

    Twilii

    wow MOOD

  41. slaughterose

    This song has always reminded me of Scarlett O' Hara.

  42. sapphiresnowdrop

    I do! =)

  43. B S

    EA AND MORRISSEY DUET. OH YES. I hope this won't stay just a perfect daydream.

  44. Adam Demetri

    I love this song :) I think the lyrics would be easier to read though if they were white... great background!!! <3

  45. Jeremy Skitz

    I wish Morrissey did decide to duet this with her. If that was indeed true, either way, it would be awesome.

  46. Thien Thuan Tran

    this song got me mesmerized the whole time, LOVE 3:43 to 4:20 BEST part

  47. DavidDecapitation

    Can anyone tell me what release this is on? It is my understanding that the one on the By The Sword EP is the baroque song and not this one...

  48. B S

    @Flylicious84 Thank you :) It's now downloaded to my computer! I have so much ugly fonts on my computer, but a least I have this beautiful font now! :) Oh, and I think I will subscribe to you, because you seem to have many well done EA lyric videos! :)

  49. Quistys

    @ADevilFromHeaven It's the English font...

  50. B S

    What a beautiful font you've used for this lýric video? May I ask what it is called?

  51. Tanith of the Fae

    @chelmoekilljoy That is exactly how she's always made me feel.

  67. Nanabi90

    @THEORYofMEtari8kitti i know, i was saying to karrie kalamity that the willow in the album laced unlaced which he/she talk about is a violin instrumental song, different from that one

  68. NoxAeterna6

    I love this song... but do you know if it was ever released? I can't find it :/ :'(

  69. chelmoekilljoy

    Somehow Emilie can break my heart and mend it at the same time.

  70. sapphiresnowdrop

    @StorybookDisneyDoll I wish I was still practiced with transcribing, I'd do it for you if I still had my piano. :( Sorry!

  71. Dwight

    This song is beautifully poetic. I sit here with both awe and admiration for these lyrics.

  72. Nanabi90

    @KarrieKalamity no if u really listened to it, u would know that isn't that willow, but a strumental track

  73. Keri Kalamity

    @rainbowheydrich uhm..she DID release it. It's on the "laced" side of Laced/Unlaced

  74. Stephanie Pihl-Krarup
