London: Pop star Jessie J has written a heart-breaking ballad about a family member`s health crisis.

The singer has been secretly dealing with devastating issues at home as one of her relatives struggles with ill health and she has poured out her feelings in a new song, which may feature on her upcoming second album, reported Contactmusic.

"It`s very emotional, it`s very personal, it`s about a family member of mine who isn`t themselves any more. They`re still alive but they`re not themselves, in the sense that illness has taken them away a little bit, without giving too much away. And
I needed to write a song about it," Jessie said.

However, the `Price Tag` hitmaker fears the track is too personal to ever sing live.

"I hope my fans respect that. I gave my all in the vocals so that they have that - it sounds like a live performance. It`s just piano and strings and me - that`s it," she added.
