good 4 u
Olivia Rodrigo Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Well good for you, I guess you moved on really easily
You found a new girl and it only took a couple weeks
Remember when you said that you wanted to give me the world

And good for you, I guess that you've been working on yourself
I guess that therapist I found for you, she really helped
Now you can be a better man for your brand new girl

Well good for you
You look happy and healthy, not me
If you ever cared to ask
Good for you
You're doing great out there without me, baby
God, I wish that I could do that

I've lost my mind
I've spent the night
Crying on the floor of my bathroom
But you're so unaffected, I really don't get it
But I guess good for you

Well good for you, I guess you're getting everything you want
You bought a new car and your career's really taking off
It's like we never even happened, baby
What the fuck is up with that?

And good for you, it's like you never even met me
Remember when you swore to God I was the only
Person who ever got you
Well, screw that and screw you
You will never have to hurt the way you know that I do

Well good for you
You look happy and healthy, not me
If you ever cared to ask
Good for you
You're doing great out there without me, baby
God, I wish that I could do that

I've lost my mind
I've spent the night
Crying on the floor of my bathroom
But you're so unaffected, I really don't get it
But I guess good for you

Ah, ah

Maybe I'm too emotional
But your apathy's like a wound in salt
Maybe I'm too emotional
Or maybe you never cared at all
Maybe I'm too emotional
Your apathy's like a wound in salt
Maybe I'm too emotional
Or maybe you never cared at all

Well good for you
You look happy and healthy, not me
If you ever cared to ask
Good for you
You're doing great out there without me, baby
Like a damn sociopath

I've lost my mind
I've spent the night
Crying on the floor of my bathroom
But you're so unaffected, I really don't get it
But I guess good for you

Well good for you, I guess you moved on really easily

Overall Meaning

Olivia Rodrigo's song "Good 4 U" talks about the aftermath of a breakup. The lyrics depict how the singer is struggling to deal with the pain and the sudden changes that have occurred in her ex-partner's life. The song is meant to be a sarcastic expression of her feelings towards her ex's success and ability to move on quickly.


The first verse states that the ex-partner found a new girl in just a couple of weeks after breaking up. This clearly shows the singer's frustration about the quick move on. The singer remembers when her ex said that he wanted to give her the world, and now he's doing it with someone else. In the second verse, she talks about how the ex-partner has been working on himself with the help of the therapist that she found for him. This has made her feel like he's a better person now, which is aggravating for the singer.


Throughout the song, the chorus repeats the words "good for you," which shows the singer's sarcasm when it comes to her ex's success. She wishes she could be doing as well as he is, but ends up spending the night on the bathroom floor crying. The bridge talks about how she feels too emotional and how her ex's apathy is like adding salt to her wounds. She calls him a sociopath and questions if he ever cared at all.


In conclusion, "Good 4 U" is a very relatable song for anyone who has gone through a breakup, and the lyrics portray the pain that comes with it.
