Lights Down Low - MAX ft. gnash




The Experience: Maybe we can make a "we" of "me" and "you"... tonight is not enough for a heart that truly wants to love forever...

Music video: A ceiling camera follows the comings and goings in gnash's bedroom. But life is more than a bed. The bed is only the image for that final relationship with his wife. That relationship, not the bed itself, is the core that everything else revolves around - growth, joy, illness, even death. Only the girl he marries, lives for and with, and eventually buries truly becomes part of who he is. She's the only one who truly made a "we" of "me" and "you". And as the next young couple moves into the apartment, the viewer is wishing them that same lifelong relationship of committed love through good and bad.

The Meaning of Lights Down Low: On the surface Lights Down Low is a simple song about sex - I'mma treat you right tonight. But although it starts with the lights down low, the song looks much further down the road of commitment: I've never felt the feelings that I feel for you. So, maybe we can make a "we" of "me" and "you". That's a yearning for forever that proves the human heart is made for more than just tonight, made for a love that lasts until death do we part.

Ask yourself: How deep is the love you yearn for?

Album: Hell's Kitchen Angel (2016)

LYRICS:


Heaven only knows where you've been.
But I don't really need to know.
I know where you're gonna go.

On my heart where you're resting your head.
And you just look so beautiful.
Just like you were an angel.

Can I stop the flow of time?
Can I swim in your divine?
'Cause I don't think I'd ever leave this place.

Oh.
Turn the lights, turn the lights down low.
Yeah.
Now I'm feeling you breathing slow.

'Cause, baby, we're just reckless kids
Tryna find an island in the flood.
Oh.
Just turn the lights, turn the lights down low.
Oh.

[gnash]
Moon light, mood lights, moves like J-Lo.
Tell me what you want from me.
I'll do it if you say so.
'Cause you're the only one for me.
I'm never gonna say "No".
I found me an angel.
I can see it in your halo.
Have you ever dreamt of what we can do?
Have you ever sent an "I love you"?
I've never felt the feelings that I feel for you.
So, maybe we can make a "we" of "me" and "you".
I'mma treat you right tonight.
Let's make it last forever.
I promise you that no one else will ever treat you better.
And if you don't believe me,
Please see I don't need no effort.
All you gotta do is flip that switch before we bed up.

Oh.
Turn the lights, turn the lights down low.
Yeah.
Now I'm feeling you breathing slow.
Oh.

'Cause, baby, we're just reckless kids
Tryna find an island in the flood.
Oh.
Just turn the lights, turn the lights down low.

Turn the lights down low.

And I would give you everything, baby.
But can you feel this energy? Take it.
And you can have the best of me, baby.

And I would give you everything.
But can you feel this energy? Take it.
And you can have the best of me, baby.

Oh.
Turn the lights, turn the lights down low.
Yeah.
Now I'm feeling you breathing slow.

Oh.
Turn the lights, turn the lights down low.
Yeah.
Now I'm feeling you breathing slow.

'Cause, baby, we're just reckless kids
Tryna find an island in the flood.
Oh.
Just turn the lights, turn the lights down low.

Oh.
Turn the lights down low.
