‘If You Say So’: Lea Michele’s tribute

See also

Seven months after Cory Monteith’s death, Lea Michele releases a heart wrenching ballad about the last words they shared. The ballad is an emotional tribute to Monteith, where Michele pours her heart out about losing the love of her life. “If You Say So” were the last words Monteith said to her.

Michele told Seventeen "I have not talked about 'If You Say So' yet. It’s about my last conversation that I had with him. I spoke to a woman who lost her son, and she mentioned how grateful she was that the last words she said to her son before he died were, 'I love you.' Mine were that as well. [The song] is just about that. There are lots of different emotions—if you could see this person again, what are the things you would want to say to them? It’s a personal story."

The song is off her of her upcoming album “Louder” which will debut on March 4th. The lyrics completely break your heart.

"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 a light you wake

And the fallen hero haunts my thoughts

How could you leave me this way"

Grab your tissues folks before you listen to this amazing song. According to Hollywood Life, Michele revealed in earlier interviews that the album was complete before Monteith’s death. She wanted to write something special to remember her boyfriend.

The song is well written, beautifully performed, and may be the next great love ballad. Michele even has the words “If You Say So” immortalized as a tattoo.
