Hanging Tree - Jennifer Lawrence


by Minerva Carrillo


The Experience: Revolution and hatred against hope and a the chance for a better world. 







Music video: this song is featured in the movie "Mockingjay", the third one in the "Hunger Games trilogy". The lyrics appeared originally in the book as part of a song Katniss sings in Disctrict 12...and it sparks a little of the rebellion that is already brewing in all the districts.


Meaning of Hanging Tree: This song symbolizes the hope that young Katniss sparks in a world full of oppression and hardship. Strange things may happen if someone decides to take action and lead a fight...but stranger things may come if all this is lived in hope instead of hatred.


Ask yourself: What gives me hope? 



LYRICS:
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where they strung up a man
They say murdered three.
Strange things have happened here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where the dead man called out
For his love to flee.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run,
So we'd both be free.
Strange things have happened here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.


  
Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of hope,
Side by side with me.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight

In the hanging tree.
