'Ronan' by Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift debuts a new song 'Ronan' in Stand Up to Cancer telethon.



The song, written about Ronan, a three year old boy who died of cancer was discovered by Swift on the blog of Ronan's mother, who helped to write the song. 'Ronan' is written with such realism, emotion and sounds genuine.

With a tune similar to 'Never Grow Up' from 'Speak Now', this is like a continued story... and the two songs go together so well!

Check out the emotional performance below and lyrics after the jump:


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

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

I remember the drive home when the blind hope
Turned to crying and screaming, "Why?"
Flowers piled up in the worst way
No one knows what to say about a beautiful boy who died

And it's about to be Halloween 
You could be anything you wanted if you were still here
I remember the last day when I kissed your face
I whispered in your ear

Come on baby with me 
We're gonna fly away from here
Out of this curtained room in this hospital
We'll just disappear
Come on baby with me
We're gonna fly away from here
You were my best four years

What if I'm standing in your closet trying to talk to you?
What if I kept the hand me downs you won't grow into?
And what if I really thought some miracle would see us through?
But what if the miracle was even getting one moment with you

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

I remember your bare feet down the hallway
I love you to the moon and back
