Lea Michele is getting super busy preparing for the release of her debut album, Louder, but it's pretty clear she still doesn't go a day without thinking about Cory Monteith. Luckily, the love she had with her Glee co-star is what keeps her going so strong today, and she recently revealed how much he continues to impact her life, even after his death.

In a new interview, Lea shared what she's been going through lately, saying, "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."

Since Cory was Lea's biggest fan, constantly supporting her in every way before his death, there are some songs that trigger more emotions than others — especially "Burn With You," which she revealed was his favorite.

"He was such a fan, you don't understand. He would be like, 'You're going to be a pop star! What are we going to do? Are we going to, like, go on the road?' He would say, 'This is going to be big!' And I'd be like, 'I don't know.' He heard every song and gave me his notes on everything," Lea said. "He loved 'Battlefield.' I'm getting chills thinking about it. I would say 'Burn with You' was his favorite."
