"Blissed and Gone" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
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
Without her here

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 seventeen 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'd 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 all right now
Maybe you need me around

    My InterpretationThe lyrics in this song are some of the most personal lyrics Corgan has ever written. I think the song is about his divorce and how he felt like he lost everything that was important to him towards the end of the Mellon Collie era. I think the line "sour 29" pinpoints the when to 96/97 (Corgan was born in '67). This is also when his wife divorced him and when their touring keyboardist died and he kicked Chamberlain out of the band. I think these lines pretty well sum this up and speak to how he felt like his world was crashing around him.

    i had myself /
    i had my band /
    i had my love /
    i had no hand in watching it all /
    fall apart

    With that context, the rest of the lyrics fit together to paint a scene of longing for his wife and unhappiness with his life.
