Hush now, don't explain
Just say you'll remain
Unless you're mad, don't explain

My love, don't explain
What is there to gain?
Skip that lipstick
Don't explain

You know that I love you
And what loving does
All my thoughts are real
For I'm so completely yours

Try to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, don't matter
When you're with me, sweet

Hush now, don't explain
You're my love and pain
My life's your love
Don't explain

    General CommentAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHh. I love Nina, but she has too many songs about women being doormats and supposedly it's perfectly OK. This is one of those songs!!! The woman knows he cheats and will cheat again, but she wants to keep him. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Move on sweets, and find a man who truly loves you and wants to be with only you. For gawd's sake, Nina really let her audience down with this one...
