“Glee” star Lea Michele has released her emotional and poignant tribute to her late boyfriend and “Glee” costar, Cory Monteith. The release comes 7 months after his tragic death from an accidental overdose, according to a Feb. 27 post by US Magazine.

The ballad is titled "If You Say So” because those were the last words Montieth ever spoke to Michele. The exact words of their exchange are captured in the chorus:

"It's been seven whole days without your embrace, I wanna see your face, I've got some things to say. 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."

The track includes other moments that the Broadway veteran agonized over ion the days following Montieth’s death.

"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."

Montieth was just 31 years old when succumbed to a combination of heroin and alcohol that proved lethal. The actor was memorialized on “Glee” by the cast in a show titled “The Quarterback” which aired in October 2013.

Michele told Us Weekly that she and Monteith would have long talks and make notes about the things they wanted to change. She says she was lucky to have shared their amazing love. Her album is her way of sharing the last 2 years of her life. You can listen to the song here.
