Taylor Swift Performs ‘New Year’s Day’ On The Tonight Show

Last night was Jimmy Fallon’s first night back at the Tonight Show since the death of his mother. He told a story about her squeezing his hand.

Taylor Swift performed on the show, and ‘New Year’s Day’ just happens to have a lyric about squeezing [her] hand. It brought up a lot of emotions for the crew.

Hearing this story kind of put the lyrics of this song into a new perspective.

“Hold onto the memories, they will hold onto you. And I will hold onto you.”
