Lea Michele Shares Cory Monteith’s Last Words In New Song
Lea Michele, 27, has been working on her debut album pretty much since she tragically lost her boyfriend Cory Monteith last July. I would imagine pouring herself into this album has been away for her to find comfort.
Now, Louder is finally done!
According to the Daily Mail, the heart-felt ballad, If You Say So, represents the last words Cory said to Lea before he died of a drug overdose in July 2013. Michele reportedly co-wrote the ballad with Australian singer/songwriter Sia Furler. In the tribute, Lea sings emotionally about the week that followed Cory’s tragic death. Listen down below.
‘It’s been seven whole days without your embrace, I wanna see your face, I’ve got some things to say,’ she sings.
‘It’s 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.’
Oh my gosh.. so sad and so real. The track continues:
‘I can’t believe it’s true, I keep looking for you, I check my phone and wait to hear from you, and now I never know if all I’ve been told is just a lie so bold.
‘I thought that we’d grow old. Mirrors in the smoke, left me here to choke.’
