Album: One In A Million (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • This song features vocals by "Lights Down Low" hitmaker Max.
  • 'Cause where were you when I was lonely?
    Now you acting like you know me
    There's 100 ways to tell you no
    Another 100 more to let you go, go, go
    'Cause where were you when I was lonely?


    Max explained the lyric: "The people that are there for you in the trenches are the ones you want with you when you are basking in the glory. And that's what this song is all about: avoiding those fake people who just want to jump in your life with things are good."
