Hearts Break for Taylor Swift

Just two days after Taylor Swift fan Ana Clara Benevides Machado passed away at her concert, Swift took the stage again in Rio.

Night 2 of the Brazil leg of her Eras Tour, comes after Taylor was forced to postpone the show on Saturday night due to the extreme heat wave Brazil is currently experiencing.

During every one of her shows, Taylor performs two or three surprise songs. They are usually songs from her discography that she never performed live before.

The surprise songs she played during Night 2 were particularly poignant given the circumstances. The second surprise song of the night was Bigger Than the Whole Sky and fans in attendance took notice of Swift’s demeanor and the subtle lyric change.

The song, which many took as Swift’s way of saying goodbye to Ana, goes, in part:

“Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye You were bigger than the whole sky You were more than just a short time And I’ve got a lot to pine about I’ve got a lot to live without I’m never gonna meet What could’ve been, would’ve been What should’ve been you What could’ve been, would’ve been you.”

Later in the song, the original lyrics read, “Every single thing to come has turned into ashes ‘Cause it’s all over, it’s not meant to be So I’ll say words I don’t believe.”

However, during the show, Taylor sang, “Every single thing I touch has turned into ashes.”
