Love You Goodbye is the eleventh track on Made in the A.M. It was exclusively released onto Spotify and iTunes on November 10, 2015.

Lyrically, the song describes having sex with a partner one final time before going your separate ways.

Background

Love You Goodbye was written by Louis Tomlinson, Julian Bunetta and Jacob Kasher Hindlin. Louis has described the song as the one he's "most proud of" and the one he "put the most personal touches on". He described the lyrics as being about "when you come to the end of a relationship and you always find yourself seeing that person one last time. It’s that moment...if you can read between the lines".[1]

Reception

Rolling Stone called Love Me Goodbye a "power ballad" that "follows in the heartbreak footsteps of recent track "History" and is accompanied by a string orchestra to make the track even more booming"[2].

Music and Lyrics described the song as having a "nice, deep sentiment and sadness caused by heartbreak, but surprisingly One Direction made sure there was room for “naughtiness” too", in reference to the sexually charged lyrics.[3]

Live Performances

Love You Goodbye was performed live in November 2015 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Good Morning America.

Lyrics

[Liam]
It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end
It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends, yeah
I know you're saying you don't want to hurt me
Well, maybe you should show a little mercy
The way you look I know you didn't come to apologize

[Harry]
Hey, hey, hey
Oh, why you're wearing that to walk out of my life?
Hey, hey, hey
Oh, even though it's over you should stay tonight
Hey, hey, hey
If tomorrow you won't be mine
Won't you give it to me one last time?
Oh, baby, let me love you goodbye

[Niall]
Unforgettable together held the whole world in our hands
Unexplainable the love that only we could understand, yeah
I know there's nothing I can do to change it
But is this something that could be negotiated
My heart's already breaking, baby, go on, twist the knife

[All]
Hey, hey, hey
Oh, why you're wearing that to walk out of my life?
Hey, hey, hey
Oh, even though it's over you should stay tonight
Hey, hey, hey
If tomorrow you won't be mine
Won't you give it to me one last time?

Oh, baby, let me love you goodbye
Oh, baby, let me love you goodbye

[Louis]
One more taste of your lips just to bring me back
To the places we've been and the nights we've had
Because if this is it then at least we could end it right

[Harry]
Oh, why you're wearing that to walk out of my life?

[All]
Hey, hey, hey
Oh, even though it's over you should stay tonight
Hey, hey, hey
If tomorrow you won't be mine
Won't you give it to me one last time?
Oh, baby, let me love you goodbye

Oh, baby, let me love you goodbye
Oh, baby, let me love you goodbye
