Lea Michele's heartbreaking new single, "If You Say So," which she wrote after Cory Monteith's tragic death, is everything you imagined it would be: beautiful, sad and incredibly moving.

Lea told [Marie Claire's sister brand], Seventeen, exclusively, "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 new song off her upcoming album Louder (which debuts March 4) was finally revealed online, and the lyrics will completely break your heart. Check them out—then listen to the full song below:

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
