Songfacts®:

  • Gone West is a country-pop quartet comprising Colbie Caillat, Justin Young, Jason Reeves and Nelly Joy. This perky, finger-snapping song centers on co-writer Eric Arjes' cheerful guitar groove.

    "We thought it would be cool to flip the script lyrically on a breakup song where when you get out of a bad relationship, you should celebrate it," Caillat told Billboard. "We always use the word confetti in our daily conversations, and Justin hit us with the brilliant line, 'No tears fell, just confetti.'"
