Chord Overstreet's song for Cory Monteith: Hear it here

Jane Lynch praised his talent, his effervescence, and his huge heart on The Tonight Show. Dianna Agron wrote poignantly about his generosity and said that his friends “will always carry a piece of [him] with us.” Matthew Morrison dedicated a song to him during his cabaret act, Up Close and Personal with Matthew MorrisonAnd now another voice from the Gleeosphere has released a moving tribute to the fallen Cory Monteith — and naturally, he’s chosen to do so in song.

Over the weekend, Glee star Chord Overstreet performed at The Roxy in Los Angeles. Among the songs he performed was this plaintive, unnamed original ballad — which Overstreet introduced by mentioning the recent loss of a dear friend, then saying, “This is for you, Cory.”

The lyrics, as best as we could figure them out:

Runnin’ out
Out of space
Searching for
A new hiding place
Where I can escape
Someone to run to
You leave behind memories
And pictures framed of you

Now it may be hard to sleep at night
But I just close my eyes and wait for your light

There’s a war going on
Hits me deep in my bones
I can’t self destruct now
From just being alone
Well, it’s another heartache
If you’ve been through it breaking
There’s never a love like before
And you can cry if you want
But it’s not gonna stop this war

What would you say
If I take you back
What would you say
If I forgave you for that
In a moment of weakness
I can see it play out
But you live and lose and love again
I’ll tell you that now

It’s better than the silence of being alone
The risk in the nights you spend sleeping by the phone

There’s a war going on
Hits me deep in my bones
I can’t self destruct now
From just being alone
Well, it’s another heartache
If you’ve been through it breaking
There’s never a love like before
No, there’s never a love like before
And you can cry if you want
But it’s not gonna stop this war

Gotta keep on living for each day
A moment come, a moment go, and it’s too late
Take this time to live here before it goes away
Make sure you leave never wanting more
And you can cry if you want
But it’s not gonna stop this war
