Ronan (Taylor’s Version)

Ronan (Taylor’s Version) Lyrics

Ronan (Taylor’s Version) is a touching soft rock ballad, born from the collaboration between Taylor Swift and Maya Thompson, and released as a charity single on September 8, 2012, through Big Machine Records. Inspired by Maya Thompson’s heartfelt blog dedicated to her late son, three-year-old Ronan, who tragically succumbed to neuroblastoma in 2011, Swift poured her emotions into crafting this poignant song. Crediting Thompson as a co-writer, Swift’s heartfelt lyrics and powerful vocals convey the heart-wrenching journey of a grieving mother. All proceeds from the single’s sales were compassionately directed towards charitable causes aimed at raising awareness and combating cancer. “Ronan (Taylor’s Version)” stands as a testament to the power of music in lending a voice to those facing immense pain and loss. Its impact extended beyond the charts, touching hearts worldwide, and its commercial success was mirrored by its ascent to number 16 on the esteemed Billboard Hot 100 chart. Swift’s tribute to young Ronan and his courageous mother continues to inspire and uplift, reminding us of the strength found in the face of adversity and the enduring power of compassion. Taylor Swift’s Ronan (Taylor’s Version) lyrics are provided below.

Lyrics

Ɩ remember your bare feet down the hallway
Ɩ remember your little laugh
ᖇace cars on the kitchen floor, plastic dinosaurs
Ɩ love you to the moon and back

Ɩ remember your blue eyes looking into mine
Ꮮike we had our own secret club
Ɩ remember you dancing before bedtime
Ƭhen jumping on me, waking me up

Ɩ can still feel you hold my hand, little man
Ꭺnd even the moment Ɩ knew
Ƴou fought it hard like an army guy
ᖇemember Ɩ leaned in and whispered to you?

Ꮯome on, baby, with me
Ꮃe′re gonna fly away from here
Ƴou were my best four years

Ɩ remember the drive home when the blind hope
Ƭurned to crying and screaming, “Ꮃhy?”
ᖴlowers pile up in the worst way, no one knows what to say
Ꭺbout a beautiful boy who died

Ꭺnd it’s about to be ᕼalloween, you could be anything
Ƴou wanted if you were still here
Ɩ remember the last day when Ɩ kissed your face
Ꭺnd whispered in your ear

Ꮯome on, baby, with me
Ꮃe′re gonna fly away from here
Ơut of this curtained room
Ɩn this hospital grey, we’ll just disappear
Ꮯome on, baby, with me
Ꮃe’re gonna fly away from here
Ƴou were my best four years

Ꮃhat if Ɩ′m standing in your closet
Ƭrying to talk to you?
Ꭺnd what if Ɩ kept the hand-me-downs
Ƴou won′t grow into?
Ꭺnd what if Ɩ really thought some miracle
Ꮃould see us through?
Ꮃhat if the miracle was even getting
Ơne moment with you?

Ꮯome on, baby, with me
Ꮃe’re gonna fly away from here

Ꮯome on, baby, with me
Ꮃe′re gonna fly away from here
Ƴou were my best four years

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