Who says breakups have to be dull and sad when you can write an upbeat song about it and dance it over. This is exactly what Toronto-based singer and songwriter Noa did with her latest single “GONE.” Let’s take a closer look at the lyrics of the song in this article.
The real-life inspired song “Gone,” tackles the initial emotions of a post-breakup situation. Breakups are hard. But this does not mean that you have to be hard on yourself. Do whatever it takes for you to get over this hurdle and you will look back on it one day and smiled that it happened. Never harbor hatred in your heart.
“I wrote “Gone” after a relationship that probably should never really have happened in the first place, ended. And just like that, the love and the person I knew was no longer in my life,” says Noa in a press release for the song.
Noa wrote this song along with two other Toronto-based songwriters and producers, Emery Taylor and Bobby Love.

Noa “Gone” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
An ending of a real relationship is one of the toughest experiences we have to go through. Someone you thought would be your partner for life is no longer there by your side. Every future that you created with this person has to be replaced with someone else now and it is torture.
In the first verse of the song, Noa tries to imagine what it would have been had they called it quits earlier on. Reimagining something that never happened is an impossible task. But this is what your mind does when it goes through trauma. All the possibilities and all the questions just flood your head.
Made every exception for you
Guess you never thought you would lose
And he did lose the game he started. No more playing and Noa is done with this. Yes, there was a time she built her future around him, but she is prioritizing herself now. No more heartaches for the rest of her life.
It’s ancient history
This love don’t exist to me
Noa was at a tipping point in her relationship. There were times of the highest of the highs and lowest of the lows in this relationship. While this might sound exciting, it does get really frustrating really fast. Too much volatility in a relationship is never good. It burns out fast.
Noa is not looking back. She is looking forward to a happier life on her own than being in the wrong relationship creating sandcastles.
