It can be all too easy to lose yourself in another person. When you’re consumed by them, you become numb to the world around you. You stop caring about what you once loved, and instead put all of your focus on the relationship. This song by Daisy Tyler speaks to that fear of becoming someone that you don’t even recognize yourself to be.
Gone underlines the importance of keeping your own identity. When you’re authentic, you’re in sync with who you are and what you stand for. You’re confident and proud, and people can see that. It doesn’t mean you have to be loud or outgoing—in fact, sometimes the most powerful thing you can do is be quiet and true to yourself. Just remember, you’re allowed to be yourself.
Tyler has stated that the music video is more than just a accompaniment to the song, but actually helps tell the story. The video looks gloomy, and unlike anything that has been seen before from her.
