Michele releases song to honour Monteith memory

Lea Michele is releasing a song in tribute to her late boyfriend, Cory Monteith.

The 'Glee' actress sings about her co-star, who died of a drugs overdose last July, in the emotionally charged ballad 'You're Mine', which is dedicated to the actor, and was a late addition to her forthcoming debut album, 'Louder', written in the wake of his passing.

Lea, 27, also posted pictures with some of the lyrics to the track, which includes the lines: "I told you all my dreams and fears / and you looked at me and your eyes filled with tears.

"And you said those three words I've been waiting for / you became a part of me."

Lea has also said she feels her bond with Cory has helped give her strength to start her solo music career.

She told Teen Vogue magazine: "I somehow feel the insane love Cory and I had for each other morphed into this strength that I have right now."

"There's just something about knowing he's watching everything I'm doing and feeling like I have to do everything now not just for me but for him."

When asked about which track on 'Louder' would be Cory's favourite, she replied: "He loved 'Battlefield'. I'm getting chills thinking about it. I would say 'Burn with You' was his favourite. He came into the studio that day."
