Behind the Music:

  • Goodbye was originally inspired by a former member of Jada who left the group in the early days; her leaving was compared to breaking up with a former love.
  • April wrote the bridge (chorus) and since it meant so much to her, she refused to let anyone change any word of it.
  • Each Jada girl wrote their her own verses and related a memory in their life to the song. They all went in different rooms in their home studio and locked the door until they were finished with the line.
  • April’s verse is about a former secret romance that had a sad ending.
  • Jacyn’s verse is about breaking up with her first serious boyfriend.
  • Lauren’s verse is about falling in love with tha special someone, but realizing it just wasn’t the right time.
  • Elle’s verse is about being in a relationship, but knowing it would never work out and that he was not the one.

Song Lyrics:

Verse 1
While writing this I swore I wouldn’t cry
Tryna to forget your name 
I’m tryin so hard to hide
You and I can’t be
And so this must mean goodbye
I can’t take the pain I’m about to feel
It kills me I don’t wanna believe it’s real
I know I have to make a clean break
That’s the only way that I can walk away

Hook (x2)
Your the one that was made for me
(You’re the one that)
But right now it seems we’re not meant to be
(Was made for me)
Why did you have to walk into my life

Verse 2
I wanna say sorry but the faults not mine
It’s not yours either it just isn’t our time
I knew you were my only from the moment I saw you
I didn’t know our dreams would prevent our part 2
I wish that we could fast forward our lives
Let’s make a promise to meet once again
We’ll be in the same place at the same time
I’ll wait till that day for my, for my heart to mend

Hook (x2)
Your the one that was made for me
(You’re the one that)
But right now it seems we’re not meant to be
(Was made for me)
Why did you have to walk into my life

Bridge
I see your face start to fade fade in my mind
I feel your touch sip slip and that’s my sign
Time to let go can’t take this anymore
I try to walk away and find my hand still holding yours

Hook (x2)
Your the one that was made for me
(You’re the one that)
But right now it seems we’re not meant to be
(Was made for me)
Why did you have to walk into my life
