"Goodbye" as written by Matt Rowe, Richard Frederick Stannard, Victoria Caroline Beckham, Melanie Janine Brown, Emma Lee Bunton and Melanie Chisholm....
No no no no
No no no no
Now listen little child, there will come a day
When you will be able, able to say
Never mind the pain, or the aggravation
You know there's a better way for you and me to be
Look for the rainbow in every storm
Fly like an angel, heaven sent to me

Goodbye my friend
I know you're gone, you said you're gone
But I can still feel you here
It's not the end
Gotta keep it strong
Before the pain turns into fear
So glad we made it
Time will never change it, no no no
No no no no

Just a little girl, big imagination
Never letting no one take it away
Went into the world (into the world)
What a revelation
She found there's a better way
For you and me to be
Look for the rainbow in every storm
Find out for certain love's gonna be there for you
You'll always be someone's baby

Goodbye my friend
I know you're gone, you said you're gone
But I can still feel you here
It's not the end
Gotta keep it strong
Before the pain turns into fear
So glad we made it
Time will never change it, no no no
No no no no
You know it's time to say goodbye

The times when we would play about
The way we used to scream and shout
We never dreamed you'd go your own sweet way
Look for the rainbow in every storm
Find out for certain, love's gonna be there for you
You'll always be someone's baby
Goodbye my friend
I know you're gone, you said you're gone
But I can still feel you here
It's not the end
Gotta keep it strong
Before the pain turns into fear
So glad we made it
Time will never never ever change it
No no no no
You know it's time to say goodbye
No no no no
And don't forget you can rely
No no no no
You know it's time to say goodbye
And don't forget on me, you can rely (no no no no)
I will help, help you on your way
I will be with you everyday
No no no no
I will be with you everyday

    General CommentI believe that this song is a tribute to Geri Haliwell's departure of the group. The other girls wishing her well, and knowing that they will always be apart of eachother.

    General Commenti actually really liked this song, i thought the video was quite good to
    im not much of a pop fan, at all, but the spice girls will always remain the strongest memory of my childhood, which got me into music

    General Commenti think it's pretty. of course, spice girls was a huge part of my generation and i was quite the follower. i loved them, and i still think the idea of them was great, i mean what other group had future female advocates stating "girl power" at the young age of 6? exactaly.

    General CommentI thought the line was "I know you're gone, you said you're gone, but I can still feel you here." I got that from the inside cover of the single.

    I love that part. It really represents me and my friends. I have 5 friends so we were a group of six. In the 9th grade, we all got together like a group. People said when we where walking down the halls together we looked like a gang. Lynn was the most talkative out of all of us. She could talk all day, I promise. Neka was the shortest one and Lee was a few inches above her. They wern't related but they acted like twin sisters. They could just look at each other and bust out laughing about nothing. Brandy was the fun one. She would laugh about something that the rest of us had not seen and was sarcastic and cool. Jessy was also cool. She was the quite one out of all of us. We looked after her like a sister. I guess you could say I was the unique one. I'm not trying to put my self on top though. If I was quite for too long, they always thought I was up to something. I would think of all these weird things and say weird things. I was always thinking about something. I was the kid. Now were in 10th grade and going to different schools. Some of us still see each other but it's not the same. I lost touch with at least 3 of them. It's funny how during the time your with friends or family you never think they would go away, but when they do you miss them like crazy. Then other friends who weren't in my class group who were my friends, and my class its self I miss. I think thats what this song is about. Seperating from friends who you love like sisters and brothers, but feeling throughout your life, they are still there.

    General Commenti was still pretty young when the spice girls fell of the face of the earth, and i never really heard this song until about a year ago. i'm still a huge fan though, this is a fantastic song!

    General Commenti heard they actually wrote this song before geri left...and that even tho it sounded as a tribute to Geri, it wasn't. I took it as being a song about a lost lover, or someone who had died...but i think i like it better as a tribute to geri anyway
