"This Time" was written by Michele's co-star Darren Chris specially for her. While speaking at the series PaleyFest Q&A at L.A.'s Dolby Theatre on March 13, the actor said the song is a "love note to the entire experience."
"Rachel Berry goes off to her next chapter and this time she's going to be strong and have that be her chariot, but it's also this time that we [as a cast have] had together has been so special," he added. "Having Lea sing it to me is one of the most special moments of my career."
