Heart It or Hate It: "If You Say So" by Lea Michele Memorializing Cory Monteith

If you thought Lea Michele's cover of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love" she recorded for GLEE last season was sad, get your tissues ready, because the actress has trumped herself in a heartbreaking way. Michele recently released "If You Say So," a song built around the last words her on-and-off screen love Cory Monteith ever said to her before passing away of a drug overdose... and it's sad. Really, really sad.

Song and lyrics below. Hunky boyfriend to comfort you while listening not included.

 

 

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
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
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
If you say so
