Adore – Track 15 – Blank Page
Blank Page is one of the saddest songs I’ve ever heard. I honestly can’t pinpoint the exact meaning of the lyrics, but I assume it’s about Corgan’s failing marriage at the time.
The haunting piano and painful, yet beautiful lyrics make a perfect ending for this melancholy album.
It contains one of my favorite lyrical passages that Corgan has written:
take a day, plant some trees
may they shade you from me
may your children play beneath
If the song is about Corgan’s divorce, this little passage becomes very powerful.
Listen to Blank Page – This song is best listened to with eyes closed
