"Can't Explain" as written by Jill H. Scott and James Jason Poyser....
I'm truly sorry baby for what I did to you
While you were busy loving me, I was busy too
I played you dirty boy, did some things I shouldn't do
While you were only trying to treat me food
I was playing... damn

I can't even begin to explain
I'm truly sorry boy
Believe me I had my turn
The next time love came along yeah it was me who burned.

Sad and desperate I cried wondering why ask God why
He would do this to me so damn easy
Well karmas real and now I really do understand
What you give is what you get, universal plan

Paid my price and looked at my life
And finally I'm loving somebody righteously
What goes around comes around really do

Really does come back around
And I'm sorry for what I didn't to you
You didn't deserve what I gave you but I gave it to you
I hope your okay
I hope your loving

Well baby just because you lived and lost don't mean stop loving
If you have a nightmare, do you stop dreaming?
Don't give up on love because what I did to you
I hope your okay
I really do.

    General CommentDoes anyone have any idea what this song pertains to? I'm sorta wondering if this is something personal Jill went through or if it's about someone she knew. I dig the jazzy touch to it though.

    General CommentI am guessing she cheated on her man (while you were busy loving me, I was busy too). Her comeuppance came from her next man. Now she knows how it feels to have the person you love hurt you. She is trying to make amends with the first guy. Doesn't want to rekindle the romance, but hopes she didn't ruin him.
