Lea Michele If You Say So

Lea Michele has opened up about her song “If You Say So” off of her debut album “Louder.” Lea revealed about the powerful meaning behind the song:

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.

Some of the lyrics in the song are:

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.
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.’
