"Goodbye to You" is a song by Michelle Branch, and was the third and the final single from her second album, The Spirit Room (2001). It reached #21 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The original acoustic version of this song can be found on Branch's debut album Broken Bracelet. The song was re-recorded and included on The Spirit Room, then for the radio and commercial release of the single Branch re-recorded vocals and wrote a new instrumental arrangement. The "radio edit" was more up-tempo, versus the album versions which are more the style of a ballad.

Music video[edit]

The music video depicts Branch at a beach in her car, driving away from her troubles, and singing towards the ocean. The video's story is set in reverse and Branch has said that the format is supposed to be similar to the film Memento. The video was directed by Francis Lawrence. The remixed version of Goodbye to You is known as the "Radio Remix".
