Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
Branch wrote this song about moving on from a relationship when she was only 15. She has said that she has no idea what the song is actually about - it was like someone whispered it in her ear.
This was featured on an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which took a novel approach to integrating music. A fictional club on the show called The Bronze featured real performers like Third Eye Blind and Lisa Loeb, whose songs often integrated into the storylines. When Branch sang "Goodbye To You" on the season 6 episode "Tabula Rasa," it portended a shift in relationships, with Buffy and Spike sparking up a romance while Willow and Tara were calling it quits. Exposure on the show gave the song a huge boost.
