Random, unhinged, long musings about Cherry Blossom that I may or may not delete...

  Hide contents

 Musing about Cherry Blossom for a bit..I think this is a really special song for many reasons, but now that I've been thinking about its presence on the album, it seems that it possesses a two-fold perspective, and has been opened to deeper meanings over the years since we first heard it. 

When she posted that instagram video singing it, it was easily dismissed as merely a lullaby that she came up with. However, being part of her 2021 album was a careful and precise decision. Not a thoughtless one.

In many ways, she seems to be opening her arms in an embrace to her past self, providing that sense of maternal protection and love that she may not have gotten, given that her "father never stepped in when his wife would rage at me." If we are to take what Lana has told us about this aspect of her life at face value, without questioning its authenticity, being met with a cold or detached mother can be troubling for it can often be the stem for later struggles of narcissism.

I do not say this in a malicious or "armchair psychologist" way, but as more of a reflection towards this track, and album in general. It provides more symbolic legitimacy to the Black Bathing Suit functioning as a sort of psychological self-protection from the intrusive, invasive and abusive nature of fame.  When she sings, "what you don't tell no one, you can tell me," she is both speaking towards her past self and her present self, aiming towards maybe not a breakage, but certainly a healing of her karmic lineage, and breaking the cycle of past traumas, for the possible chance at motherhood in the future.

 

Holy shit. This.
