Lea Michele Explains “If You Say So” Lyrics

Posted Friday February 28, 2014 3:28 PM GMT

With the arrival of her Louder album on March 4th, Lea Michele has been teasing fans with tantalizing tidbits of her new ditties.

And after she unveiled “If You Say So” earlier this week, the “Glee” gal decided it’d be best to decode the message for her listeners.

Michele told Seventeen, "It's about my last conversation that I had with [my late boyfriend Cory Monteith]. 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.”

She continued, “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."

On the track, Lea sings, "It's been seven whole days/ Seven whole days since you paralyzed me. It's been 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."

Miss Michele previously told Glamour UK that she can feel Cory watching over her. "Every day when I go running, I feel like he's pushing me to run harder.”
