"Don't Explain" as written by Arthur Jr. Herzog and Billie Holiday....
Hush now, don't explain
You're the cause of all my
Trouble and pain
Unless you're mad
Don't explain

My love, my love, my love
Don't explain
There is nothing within me now to gain
You know that I love you
Look at what loving has done
All my thoughts were real
And so sincere
I was so completely yours

You know I hear folks cha-cha-cha-chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, that don't matter
You're here with me
Sit down, have a sit
It's your time to feel the pain
It's your time to weep
Don't explain

Hush now, don't explain
There is nothing within me now to gain
I'm gonna skip it instead
Don't explain
Don't explain

    General CommentWHY ANYONE HAS COMMENT THIS GREAT SONG?????
    SHAME ON YOU GUYS¡¡¡¡
    WELL, IT'S OBVIOUSLY ABOUT FINDING OUT THAT YOUR BOYFRIEND HAS CHEATED ON YOU¡¡¡
    AND HE'S TRYING TO EXPLAIN THINGS, AND HE WANTS YOU TO FORGIVE HIM¡¡¡
    RECENTLY MY FRIEND SAW MY BOYFRIEND KISSING ANOTHER GIRL, AND WHEN I ASK HIM WHAT HAPPENED, HE JUST SAID THAT HE LOVES HER¡¡¡¡
    OH, IT TOTALLY BROKE MY HEART¡¡
    BUT HE SAID: WE CAN'T STILL BE FRIENDS¡¡¡¡¡
    AND I SAID: GO TO HELL STUPID¡¡¡
    AND LIKE A WEEK LATER HE CAME BACK SAYING HE MADE A MISTAKE AND I WAS THE ONLY GIRL HE REALLY LOVES, AND THEN HE START EXPLAINING OUT¡¡
    BUT DURING THAT WHOLE WEEK I REALISED THAT I DIDN'T NEED HIM¡¡¡ AND I JUST TURN MY BACK AND SAID GOOD BYE JACOB¡¡¡
    NOW I'M HAPPILY FREE....
