"Explain" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
It's pointless to explain why
There's nothing I can say
My words would all be meaningless
Anyway
It seems I can't be trusted
And I don't disagree
What made you think I ever really
Wanted to be?
I can't explain why
And I don't know when
I'm ever going to want to
See her again
Son don't ask why I came here
There's nothing I can say
I don't think I'll be staying very long
Anyway
I'm trying to find out why
I came here at all
I don't think it was to see you
After all

    My Interpretation"It's pointless to explain why
    There's nothing I can say
    ...

    Seems to me that he cheated on someone. He can't explain himself out of the situation, he's just come to terms with that his partner found out. The second paragraph suggests he's not surprised he did it, he knew he couldn't keep away. "Her" in the third paragraph is the girl with whom he cheated on his partner.
