Corey Monteith Conversation Inspired Lea Michele Song
During her interview, she revealed some of the difficulties she faced following his death and how she overcame them. "At the start, it's hard because you're so physically and mentally shocked and damaged, but after a while you get tired of physically feeling so horrendous, so I started doing yoga, which really helped," she told the mag. "Then gradually your mind catches up with your body. Now I feel a little bit more back together and I have this blank canvas in front of me, which is what my life can be. There's something sad about that but also something good, because I will take that blank canvas and make something beautiful out of it."
Michele also said that she and Monteith talked about kids, and their future together. "We talked about children and what we would look like when we grew old and who would be fat and how we would stay thin," she said. "We talked about where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We were done. We were it. When you're at that place in your life with someone, you talk about everything. But today I feel like I was given the best part of Cory and I'm thankful for that."
Her new song "If You Say So" is actually about the last conversation with 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," she told Seventeen. "[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."
