"Goodbye" is a Mandopop song recorded by Malaysian singer-songwriter Shila Amzah. The song was written by Kelvin Avon and Jessica Bennet and composed by Xiao Guang. The song was produced by Jun Kung and Kelvin Avon. It was released on 6 October 2015, by Shilala (HK) Limited as the lead single from Shila Amzah's debut Chinese-language album (My Journey). The writers were inspired to write "Goodbye" after hearing Shila's previous single which was See You or Never. The song contains many Malaysian pop and mandopop elements and its lyrics have Shila desiring and out-of-reach love interest.


Composition and lyrics

At three minutes and forty-six seconds, "Goodbye" is a song with moderately slow. The single is a continuation from her previous Chinese hit, “Zaijian Bu Zaijian” (再見不再見) — meaning, See You or Never — which was inspired from the singer’s real love story where she hesitated whether she should leave her boyfriend or not.Thus, the newest song provides an answer to the previous song where the singer decided to say “Goodbye” to her painful love and move on. The song was produced by platinum-selling music producer Kelvin Avon along with Hong Kong renowned drummer, singer and songwriter Jun Kung (恭碩良). In an interview with the TVB television show, “Jade Solid Gold” (劲歌金曲), Shila said that the reason she enlisted help from Jun Kung was because she had always wanted to work with a Hong Kong artists and she knows that Kung has a good relationship with the people from her record company, Shilala (HK) Limited.
