CocoRosie - Gallows Lyrics

It was just before the moon hung
Her weary heavy head in
The gallows and the graves of
The milky milky cradle
His tears have turned to poppies
A shimmer in the midnight
A flower in the twilight
A flower in the twilight

And our screaming
Is in his screaming
Our screaming in the willow

They took him to the gallows
He fought them all the way though
And when they asked us how we knew his name
We died just before him
Our eyes are in the flowers
Our hands are in the branches
Our voices in the breezes

And our screaming
Is in his screaming
Our screaming in the willow tree

We're waiting by the willow
Our milky milky cradle
Our lockets long have rusted
His picture worn and weathered
Our hair is in the garden
Our voices in our toeses
Our heart are in the blossoms
Our eyes are in the branches

And our screaming
Is in his screaming
Our screaming in the willow tree

  24. Saúl Alejandro Ríos Meneses

    I already knew the song, but someone else came here for HBO series euphoria?

    Saúl Alejandro Ríos Meneses

    @Misael Molina ya conocía la canción, pero, alguien más vino aquí por la serie Euforia de HBO??

    Misael Molina

    Saúl Alejandro Ríos Meneses Gracias, igualmente ya conocía la canción hace mucho y no he visto euphoria Jaja solo se que la protagonista es Zendaya

    nicole avery

    No one cares. Most people came here because they actually have good taste in music before they heard it on some mainstream show


    @nicole avery Still it's great that for some people it helps to find a good songs like this one, even if it's just some mainstream show, so I don't see why it would be bad about being kinda grateful for the show for it.


    nicole avery obviously mainstream tv triggers you but... no need to be a d*ck about it😒.

    Amazing song

  34. Tony cruz

    Just finished watching hereditary for the first time (lol late to the game I know) but for some reason I needed to listen to this song after.

  35. Guadalupe Gutierrez


  36. Inga Piotrowska

    Do you know where this was shot?

  37. Aaron Seibert

    It's obviously Salem vibe as there is a park in town called Gallows Hill, with the original trees, where the hangings actually took place. Most of the 'offenders' came from the modern town of Danvers(Salem Village) which was part of Salem back then. There is another part , near the ocean, called Salem Willows. Salem is my hometown and I miss it. Though, ironically, I don't give one shit about it's ocullt history :)

  38. LaWendeltreppe

    Alexander Mc Queen would have loved this one.

  39. Michael Wilson

    Don't hang me because I'm beautiful!

    Reminds me of the Crucible.

  58. Marius Hongve

    Are the bloody twins ghosts? Is that what they've always been?

  59. nicepeople ewan

    genre fairy folk?

  60. Audrey Hill

    Whenever I listened to this song originally, I thought it was sung from the perspective of a girl who had been murdered who's ghost was attending her killer's hanging, but after watching the video I think it may actually be a lot more romantic/tragic than that.

  61. nikita70

    * I definitely enjoy/relish...

  62. nikita70

    As a confirmed fan of a dark side I definitely it getting complicated, more refined, gentle uneasy and intriguing, feeding thoughts and senses and generally to be able to get BEYOND/crossover this annoying cliche with rustical women dressed up in tore?? fishnet stockings.

  63. Jennifer Miller

    This song makes me so sad but I listen to it all the time

  64. midniqhtskies

    If you like cocorosie you'll like Melanie martinez

    Gonzo Di Donato

  68. MrsMalefiz

    ...great song, I love listening to it... but I don't get, why they obviously died from drinking methylated spirit?
    This stuff is so unpalatable, you will never make it to a proper jag. Anyway... in a strange way, song and vid are just beautiful...

  69. Grace lilly

  76. ArthurKyriu

    I thought, Coco Rosie was a song of the hardcore-punk band Gallows. In first moment I got disappointed, cuz there are no Gallows stuff. However, I gave a chance, and for God Sake, this is gorgeous ❤

  77. MIchelle Marie

    Does anyone know who the actors are?

  78. Grace lilly

    i miss you

  79. Nyeah Squidward

    I thought this video was about two twins who both fancied one guy so they shared him. Like they were so close, they couldn't really be apart or make decisions without each other, so sharing a man made sense and was inevitable as the girls would never be found apart. They loved each other, and had an enjoyable relationship. Then some people found out about their relationship and he was hung. So they committed suicide.


    I took his hanging to be about something else altogether, like maybe he was a highwayman or bandit. A daring rogue.
    The sisters hurry to the willow tree to kill themselves as he is being hanged so that they can all be together, as spirits in the land.

  80. Liadaan Fahbien

    Very Bronte and very original! I love it! I'm so glad I found these girls and their inspiring music.

  81. grantleleux

  85. jimbomania001

    envoutant , magique ,  troublant,

  86. CyranoForever101


  87. Joonho Jung

    a better version of hunger games's hanging tree

  88. Bucky•JaKRBT

    That stock cat scream ruins the song for me.

  89. altar7

    are they from Iceland or are they just trying to sound like Bjork?

  90. tripnotico

    so bjorkish

  91. Gabby Powers

    I read the bottle they drank it said something spirits 0:13

  92. Jess Pierre

    I'm so in love with this song.. I've seen some people's take on this song and video, they are talkin about discovering their magik in and through nature and the energy of God, how beautiful and harmless it was in their case but people still saw it as a horrible thing and found out about them, so the man gave them poison to avoid bein hung and humiliated and told them everything would be okay and one was his love the other was her sister they got him and hung him and they all felt each others pain and ultimately became one with nature and it was beautiful but still explains how fucked up their story was and many like them, the Bear hides and Buffalo is a good similar one too

  93. Understanding Insanity

    beautiful. One of my favorite songs xx

  94. Honorata71

    I love this song all the time...

  95. Bartek Bielecki

    This is so awesomly eerie!

  96. zerooskul

    The Sanctimonious Kid; hanged in Australia for shooting a police constable in the back.
    He was the police constable who he had shot and so had to be hanged to feed the tail into the snake.
    He believed, though, that he'd shot the sheriff; he swore it was in self-defense.
