Hello Heartache is a song recorded by Canadian singer Avril Lavigne for her self-titled fifth studio album. It was written by Lavigne and David Hodges, and produced by Hodges. Musically, "Hello Heartache" is one of the album's darkest songs, which was recognized by Jason Lipshutz of Billboard, who commented, "The ghouls crowing 'la-la-la' in the background amplify Lavigne's pain, and although the sentiment at the heart of 'Hello Heartache' is a simple one, it's no less impactful."[1] The song was also intended to be on Lavigne's previous album but was cut from it. New music was created for the song before it appeared on her fifth record.

Critical receptionEdit

The song received mixed to positive reviews from critics, who complimented the seriousness of the track but found it to be a weak addition to the album's track listing. Sam Lansky of Idolator compared "Hello Heartache" to the work of Skyler Grey[2], while Bradley Stern of MuuMuse compared the angry tone of the song to the work of Alanis Morisette, as well as Lavigne's debut single "Complicated" in a hugely positive review of the track.[3]  

LyricsEdit

La la la la la la la la
You were perfect
I was unpredictable
It was more than worth it, but not too sensible

Young and foolish
Seemed to be the way
I was stupid to think that I could stay
Oh oh
To think that I could stay

Goodbye my friend
Hello heartache
It's not the end
It's not the same
Wish it didn't have to be this way
You will always mean the world to me love
Goodbye my friend
Hello heartache

La la la la la la la la
Hello heartache
La la la la la la la la

I was champagne
You were Jameson
Every bad thing we did was so much fun

I've seen your best side
You got to see my worst
It's not the first time, but this one really hurts
Oh oh
Yeah this one's going to, it hurts

Goodbye my friend
Hello heartache
It's not the end
It's not the same
Wish it didn't have to be this way, but you will always mean the world to me love
Goodbye my friend
Hello heartache

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Do you know
Do you get
It's just goodbye
It's not the end
Do you know
Do you get
It's just goodbye
It's not the end

Goodbye my friend
Hello heartache
It's not the end
It's not the same
Wish it didn't have to be this way, but you will always mean the world to me love
Goodbye my friend
Hello heartache

La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Hello heartache
(Hello heartache)
Wish it didn't have to be this way
But you will always mean the world to me love
Goodbye my friend
Hello heartache

La la la la la la la la
