Taylor Swift Performs 'Soon You'll Get Better' for First Time - Watch the Emotional Video

Taylor Swift has said that she would likely never perform her song “Soon You’ll Get Better,” but she debuted the song with an emotional performance on the One World: Together At Home special.

The 30-year-old singer wrote the song about her mom Andrea Swift‘s battle with cancer and the song is on her latest album Lover.

“We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard,” Taylor told fans back in August 2019. “I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song.”

“It was hard to write, it’s hard to sing. It’s hard to listen to for me, but sometimes music is like that,” she added.

“Change happens not only in my career, but in my life,” Taylor said. “And I’ve got some pretty intense things happening with my family right now. I can’t go on long tours and not have the ability to go home if I need to. I have priorities that aren’t just touring now, and [the fans] have been really respectful of that in the past.”

“This is where the rubber meets the road and I actually have to make decisions,” Taylor added. “Where there are question marks in my life and things that are really important to me and my family, I have to be able to have some breathing room in my touring schedule and I think they kind of understand that.”

Taylor‘s mom Andrea was unfortunately diagnosed with cancer in 2015, and Taylor revealed earlier this year that she’s currently undergoing a relapse.

For Taylor Swift‘s Lover Fest East + West events, she’ll be performing at the Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles on July 25, 2020, and July 26, 2020, and Gillette Stadium in Boston on July 31, 2020, and August 1, 2020. The other dates will take place in Europe.

Taylor Swift's Lyrics for 'Soon You'll Get Better' Are About Her Mom

Taylor Swift is providing some background for her new song “Soon You’ll Get Better” from Lover and she revealed it’s about her mom Andrea‘s battle with cancer.

The 29-year-old singer collaborated with the country music group Dixie Chicks for the emotional new song.

“That was really, really hard to write, and it was just a family decision whether to even put it on the album,” Taylor told fans about the song during her YouTube Live Stream. “We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard. I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song. You’ll understand what I mean in a couple hours.”

Taylor revealed to fans four years ago that her mom was battling cancer and then earlier this year, she opened up about how her mom is facing the disease again.

“And I hate to make this all about me / But who am I supposed to talk to? / What am I supposed to do? / If there’s no you,” Taylor sings on the track.

While in court on Wednesday, the 27-year-old entertainer’s mom Andrea testified against Mueller in defense of her daughter.

News). “She couldn’t believe that after he grabbed her, that she thanked them for being there. It was just destroying her that she said that…as a parent it made me question why I taught her to be so polite in that moment.”

Andrea went on to explain that they did not report the situation to the police because they didn’t want this action to “define” Taylor‘s life.

“I was upset to the point where I wanted to vomit and cry at the same time,” Andrea continued. “We felt it was imperative to let his employers know what happened.”
