Watch Taylor Swift’s Tearful Perfomance Of Her New Song ‘Ronan’

By  | 

Taylor Swift got choked up during her performance of her new song, Ronan, at the Stand Up To Cancer telethon on Friday night, a far cry from her upbeat VMA performance the night before. The song is based on a blog post by a woman named Maya Thompson, whose toddler son Ronan lost his battle to cancer. Thompson has a co-writing credit on the song, here are some of the lyrics:

I remember your bare feet down the hallway
I remember your little laugh
Race cars on the kitchen floor
Plastic dinosaurs, I love you to the moon and back

I remember your blue eyes looking into mine like we had our own secret club
I remember you dancing before bed time then jumping on me waking me up
I can still feel you hold my hand
Little man, from even that moment I knew
You fought it hard like an army guy
Remember I leaned in and whispered to you

Come on baby with me
We’re gonna fly away from here
You were my best four years

What did you think of the song? Did you watch the telethon? Taylor was photographed leaving the star-studded event (Robert Pattinson also made an appearance) in tears along with her mother. Has cancer affected your life or the lives of your loved ones? Let us know in the comments.
