Thank God I found the good in goodbye

from Beyoncé – Best Thing I Never Had Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Etymology Lesson

At first, there was no “good” in “goodbye” because it was a contraction of “God be with ye.”

Goodbyes are weirdly named because they’re often sad. When you say goodbye to people, you don’t usually want them to leave. In this case, Beyoncé clearly sees the good side of parting with her ex.
