Taylor Swift Forgets The Lyrics To ‘Last Kiss’ Twice in Kansas City During Eras Tour

Taylor Swift was seen having trouble in remembering her song lyrics on her tour stop at Kansas City, over the weekend. In the acoustic segment of her performance at Geha Field in Arrowhead Stadium, the 33-year-old pop sensation encountered a lighthearted moment when she amusingly stumbled over the lyrics, not just once, but twice, during her rendition of the poignant 2010 track ‘Last Kiss’ from the ‘Speak Now’ album.

She effortlessly sang the first two lines of the opening verse, before skipping to ‘Ninth July’ portion of the second verse. She then paused to acknowledge her mistake to the crowd.

“Oh my God, the words… We have this rule on this tour where if I mess up a song that I have to play it again some other time on the tour so that I can avenge myself,” she explained to the crowd. “I got too excited, I got too excited. Will you allow me the honor of starting over?”

Swift then went on to restart the tune. She got the first three lines without a hitch, but then again stopped and started second-guessing herself.

“Oh my God! No, those are the right lyrics,” Tay said, repeating the opening lines. “I swear that I will not mess this up again! Oh my God! This one, I love this one. Why am I doing this to this song?”

When Swift sang the song for the third time, it was perfect! She effortlessly delivered the ‘Speak Now’ track without any interruptions. Before singing ‘Last Kiss’, the singer reminded the crowd of the date with played an important part in the song.

“I don’t know if you noticed what the date is today, but it’s July 8th,” she said. “Soon it will be July 9th. You know what time it is, Kansas City. It’s time to play ‘Last Kiss’ and cry.”

“Last Kiss” reached No. 71 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2010. In the latest version of the song, Taylor mentioned that this is the saddest song that she has ever written.
