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."

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
