I’m never gonna let you close to me
Even though you mean the most to me
‘Cause every time I open up, it hurts
The official music video for Sam Smith’s “Too Good at Goodbyes” has finally dropped and everything about it is going to get you emotionally unstable.
Just listening to the track gave you all the feels, what more with the visual representation to back it up?
Smith caresses his lover as other couples share the pain in being in a relationship that seems bound to fall.
Smith mentioned to Apple Music that “Too Good at Goodbyes” is one of the most personal moments from the new, as-yet-untitled album.
“This song is about me and about a relationship I was in,” Smith said.
“This album actually is not all about me. There’s about four songs that are about me, and the rest are about different things and different people in my life and what they’ve gone through.”
“I was in a really bad place,” he said. “I got dumped, which wasn’t very nice. Writing music about that kind of thing is normally like therapy for me, but when I got dumped this time ’round I just couldn’t write for about two months … My team had to force me to get into the studio, because I almost felt as if I didn’t want to do it any more. So, there were moments on there where it got a bit intense and I started to lose myself.”
And surely enough, you’ll lose yourself in the video.
