"Last Goodbye" is the third track on Grace by the singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley. It is also his second video. This song was originally titled "Unforgiven"; as stated on his official website by his mother, Buckley went through a metamorphosis with many of his songs, and it is evident when one hears early versions of "Unforgiven", one of which can be heard on Live at Sin-é (Legacy Edition), and the final version of the song heard on Grace.

His most commercially successful song, it earned Buckley a belated alternative hit in early 1995, peaking at #19 on the U.S. Billboard Modern Rock Tracks.

On January 12, 2005 the famed Washington, D.C./Baltimore, MD alternative radio station WHFS played "Last Goodbye" as their final track before going under new management as a modern Latin music station.

In 2009, the song was covered by actress and musician Scarlett Johansson. This version of the song appeared on the soundtrack of the film He's Just Not That into You. The song is also featured on the soundtrack for the film Vanilla Sky, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.
