Anonym fragte: She didn't even wire You're mine nor has she ever said it was dedicated to him. The press said that. Lea said it reminded her of their relationship and the press twisted it . Columbia first approached Lea to do an album back in 2009, but she felt she didn't have the time to commit to it fully. She started this album about a year before Cory died. So her doing an album had nothing to do with him.
I know that she didn’t do the album because of Cory, I never said that. I just said that I would write all my songs about my boyfriend when I would have been her. She even wrote a song about her ex (Cue the rain). Furthermore I know that she didn’t wrote the song “You’re mine”, that she just felt an instant connection with it. With the text I just wanted to say that they weren’t just publicity and these songs where examples. I know she only wrote “If you say so” and that “You’re mine” reminded her of Cory. Nothing more, nothing less.
My friends get out together, clubbing and stuff. They don’t even ask me anymore if I would like to join them. They even ask things like ‘Whats up with you? Are you okay?’. I mean, yeah, you’re talking while I’m sitting right next to you like I wouldn’t exist. But I’m better in hiding it as well, my laugher seems real for them, my smile gets better and better every time I’m faking it.
I don’t go to therapy anymore, they think I’m better and don’t need that often. They don’t know that I’m just doing it to avoid the questions, if I’m feeling better, if the thoughts about suicide came back. Well, truth is, they never really were gone, they were always present and they will always be there for the rest of my life.
If I ever hear something again about them only being a couple because they got paied for it, I’m goung to get crazy. Just because she got her first solo album doesn’t mean she’s attention seaking. For god’s sake of course there are songs about Cory on it. If I had a boyfriend for the past few years who I imagined to spend the rest of my life with I would have written all my songs about him. Just because she wrote ‘If you say so’ and ‘You’re mine’ doesn’t mean she’s into getting all the intention through his death. She got an tattoo with these words on her body for the rest of life! Do you guys really think someone would really just made a tattoo that would have to stuck with you forever? She wants to remember him because he meant the world to him, because he made her the luckiest girl in the world.
And if this isn’t enough she never really talks about Cory. She always ‘my boyfriend’, even when she talked once about If you say so on her Track Album Part. She loved him and he was special to her. She’s grieving because she lost her true love.
