"Joanne" as written by and Mark Ronson Stefani Germanotta....
Take my hand, stay Joanne
Heaven's not ready for you
Every part of my aching heart
Needs you more than the angels do

Girl, where do you think you're goin'?
Where do you think you're goin'
Goin', girl?
Girl, where do you think you're goin'?
Where do you think you're goin'
Goin', girl?

If you could I know that you'd stay
We both know things don't work that way
I promised I wouldn't say goodbye
So I grin and my voice gets thin

Girl, where do you think you're goin'?
Where do you think you're goin'?
Goin', girl?
Girl, where do you think you're goin'?
Where do you think you're goin'?
Goin', girl?

Honestly, I know where you're goin'
And baby, you're just movin' on
And I after love you even if I can't
See you anymore can't wait to see you soar

Girl, where do you think you're goin'?
Where do you think you're goin'
Goin', girl?
Girl, where do you think you're goin'?
Where do you think you're goin'
Goin', girl?

    Song MeaningI read that the song is for Lady Gaga's Aunt Joanne, who died young (and possibly even before Gaga was born, if I remember correctly), but who Gaga is named after (middle name Joanne).

    My OpinionEven though the song is about a specific person and situation, I feel that it can apply to other tragic situations, like a lost love. I can even see it being sung in the third person by someone who puts themselves in the role of Joanne because they are giving up on themselves or running away from something and need a boost in self-worth. It's poignant all these ways.
