Lea Michele’s New Song Is About Cory Monteith — It Will Break Your Heart

lea michele cory monteith song

This week marked the first new Glee episode in weeks, and it focused heavily on the Rachel Berry / New York / Funny Girl story line. But that wasn’t the big news of the night for actress Lea Michele, who plays Rachel on the hit series. What everyone in entertainment is talking about is the new “Lea Michele Cory Monteith song” — the single from her album Louder. Entitled “If You Say So,” it’s a tribute to former boyfriend Cory Monteith, who died seven months ago from a drug overdose.

For the most part, Michele has been mum about the loss of Monteith, but “If You Say So” is about the last words the 31-year-old actor and Glee star ever said to her. What’s more, fans are loving it — and not simply because of the meaning behind the ballad; they just think it’s a great tune.

Louder, which is Michele’s debut album, is set to be released on Monday. Listen to the song above, and check out the lyrics from directlyrics.com below.

It’s been seven whole days, seven whole days
Since you paralyzed me
Seven whole days, seven whole days
Since you lost your fight
And I can’t get the last words that you said
Can’t get those words out of my head
Seven whole days, seven whole days and four words
And I can’t get away from the burning pain, I lie awake.
And the fallen hero haunts my thoughts
How could you leave me this way?

It’s been seven whole days without your embrace
I wanna see your face
I got some things to say
Was just a week ago
You said I love you girl
I said I love you more
And a breath, a pause, you said, if you say so
If you say so
If you say so

It’s been seven whole days, seven whole days
Since I heard the phone ring
Seven whole days, seven whole days
Since I heard your voice
And I can’t get the last words that you said
Can’t get those words out of my head
It’s been seven whole days, seven whole days of pure hurt
And I can’t get away from the burning pain, I lie awake.
And the fallen hero haunts my thoughts
How could you leave me this way

It’s been seven whole days without your embrace
I wanna see your face
I got some things to say
Was just a week ago
You said I love you girl
I said I love you more
And a breath, a pause, you said, if you say so
If you say so
If you say so

I can’t believe it’s true
I keep looking for you
I check my phone and wait to hear from you in a crowded room
The joker is so cruel
And now I’ll never know if all I’ve been told is just a lie so bold
I thought we would grow old
Mirrors in the smoke
Left me here to choke

It’s been seven whole days without your embrace
I wanna see your face
I got some things to say
Was just a week ago
You said I love you girl
I said I love you more
And a breath, a pause, you said, if you say so
If you say so
If you say so
