Behind the Song
Local Nomad "Love is Gone"
"LOVE IS GONE represents the curtain call after a long term relationship abruptly ends. In the wake of the uncomfortable pain comes a sense of newfound freedom that calls for a celebration.
I wrote this song when I had gotten broken up with over the phone after being in a relationship for 6+ years. I wanted this song to be harsh, funny and authentic.
Like the phases of this relationship, LOVE IS GONE morphed through a series of versions as I grew more and more comfortable being lyrically vulnerable. It ended up as a coping mechanism for me as I discovered humor and came face to face with some harsh realities - we are just different people in the end, and once the love is gone, it's time to let go."
