Louis Tomlinson dedicated his “Two of Us” single to his late mom and it’s a beautiful, if not heartbreaking moment for the former One Direction singer.
His mother Johannah passed away in 2016 after battling Leukemia. In a press release (via Billboard), Tomlinson explained why he needed to write “Two of Us,” why it took him so long, and how he hopes it’ll help people going through the same thing he did.
“So I will keep you, day and night, here until the day I die/ I’ll be living one life for the two of us/ I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me/ I’ll be living one life for the two of us/ Even when I’m on my own, I know I won’t be alone/ Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favorite song/ I know you’ll be looking down, swear I’m gonna make you proud/ I’ll be living one life for the two of us,” Tomlinson sings.
