Goodbye Means Hello

Album: Only Human (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Co-written by Cheryl's Girls Aloud bandmate and best friend Nicola Roberts, this song is about a passionate but turbulent relationship. Roberts teamed up for the tune with producer Lucas Secon, who has worked with The Pussycat Dolls, Sugababes, Kylie Minogue and Pixie Lott.
  • Cheryl told Digital Spy she thinks a lot of people will be able to relate to the song. "At some point in your life you have a relationship where you're like, 'Go away, you asshole...in fact can we make up?,'" she said. "Especially young people with that passionate, teenage relationship you have where you're screaming and fighting one minute and then you're like, 'Can I come round?' the next."

    "I'm always bearing in mind if people will relate," Cheryl added, "and Nicola [Roberts] wrote that, which makes it even more special."
