During her performance at the 60th Grammy Awards on January 28, Lady Gaga dedicated her performance to her father’s sister.

Joanne Stefani Germanotta died on December 18, 1974, at the age of 19, from lupus, as the YouTube caption explains. Lady Gaga’s father was only 15 years old.

The song, titled “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Going?),” is a song that anyone who has someone they love might relate to. The lyrics read:

Take my hand, stay Joanne
Heaven’s not ready for you
Every part of my aching heart
Needs you more than the angels do

Girl, where do you think you’re goin’?
Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl?
Girl, where do you think you’re goin’?
Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl?

If you could, I know that you’d stay
We both know things don’t work that way
I promised I wouldn’t say goodbye
So I grin and my voice gets thin

Girl, where do you think you’re goin’?
Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl?
Girl, where do you think you’re goin’?
Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl?

Honestly, I know where you’re goin’
And baby, you’re just movin’ on
And I’ll still love you even if I can’t see you anymore
Can’t wait to see you soar

Girl, where do you think you’re goin’?
Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl?
Girl, where do you think you’re goin’?
Where do you think you’re goin’, goin’, girl?

Call me Joanne
XO, Joanne
XOXO, Joanne
