"Was My Girl" as written by Hod David and Maxwell Menard....
Turn the lights down low
Something you gotta see, yeah
Gotta let you know
All that's here in me
Say you want to go
So we can both break free, lady lady

You won't open up wide (oh oh)
How can you not open up wide (oh oh)
How could you do that to me, child
When you know, know I love you girl (oh oh)

Turn the lights down low
Tell me what you could see, yeah
Tell me what you know
About everything you and me
'Cause baby if you want to go
I got a place we can be, lady lady

How could you not want to want to want to
Open open wide (oh oh)
How could you make me ride (oh oh oh)
How could you, how could you do that to me, why
When you know that I love you, girl
(Know I love you girl)

Love you girl

Turn the lights down low
Something you gotta see, yeah
Gotta let you know

    General CommentWow, I'm surprised no one has commented on this song. It's one of my favorite Maxwell songs.

    In my opinion, the song is about yearning. He's pleading with a woman to open up and bare her soul to him, but she has her guard up. She wants to end things (possibly due to fear of getting her heart broken again?), but he feels that things are unfinished and he wants to show her how much he truly does love her.

    "Turn the lights down low
    tell me what you could see, yeah
    tell me what you know
    about everything you and me"

    This song and lyrics are so personal; I'm totally feeling Max on this one
