Blissed And Gone Lyrics - Smashing Pumpkins



Review The Song (4)


The sun has blessed
The rays are gone
And all the kids have left their tears and gone home

Sweet 17, sour 29
And I can't explain myself
What I'd hoped to find
You were all so kind
When I was near

And if you're still feeling down
Then maybe you need me around
To love and hold you
Don't say I hadn't told you so
Maybe you need me around

I had no luck
I had no shame
I had no cause, just 17 days of rain
And you in my eyes

Just one more song to slay this earth
And I can't explain myself
Just what it's worth
It was all I had, but not all I need
And I can't escape the fact that I still bleed

And if you're still feeling down
And if this seems way too loud
Then maybe you need me around

I had no voice
I had no drive
I had no choice
I've done my time
I had myself
Had my band
I had my love
Had no hand in watching it all fall apart

And if you're still feeling down
Then maybe you need me around
To lift and scold you
To send you crashing alright now
Maybe you need me around

blissed and gone was a smashing pumpkins song billy released on the
"still becoming apart" EP which was given away with machina to the
first lucky pre-order fans. It is a heartbreaking EP containing many
small photos of all the band members (but not many of billy) and there
is a demo instrumental called "hope" recorded in 1988 - just two
delayed guitars for 3 minutes... and blissed + gone. The masterpiece in my humble opinion. The album version
contains less lyrics but live he sang "I had no voice
I had no drive
I had no choice
I've done my time
I had myself
Had my band
I had my love
Had no hand in watching it all fall apart "

as indicated in this transcription above. I recommend the "live at constitution hall" MP3 of this song from Philly. Just him an and acoustic guitar. And it slays me.

it would get me every time. I highly suggest you check out the "band" version. (it sounds like just billy with a drum machine to me) from the Still becoming apart EP. It sounds like an
adore era b side... also blissed + gone is "17 seconds" the 17 seconds of piano that closes the adore album- it's the same song!)



Awesome. Still going as a band but oh how the public should've listened more. | Reviewer: Nicholas | 12/9/10

I've only just tracked down the Greatest Hits album with the Judas O bonus disc and if Billy Corgan can deem half of these songs not good enough for an album/single then it just indicates what a genius the man is. It grieves me that this song hasn't been heard more widely. It must grieve him more. Pure beauty. Thanks, Billy.



agree | Reviewer: cc | 3/14/07

this is an awesome song, your right easily should have been an album track, good enough to have been a single i'd say. Highly underrated song, as with alot of other pumpkin songs, give it a chance.

This is an awsome song, if u get a chance download it, it should have been on an actual real album like, adore. Instead of on the greatest hits second disc, is a fabulous song :)
