"Don't Explain" as written by Arthur Jr. Herzog and Billie Holiday....
Hush now, don't explain
Just say you'll remain
I'm glad you're back, don't explain

Quiet, don't explain
What is there to gain
Skip that lipstick
Don't explain

You know that I love you
And what love endures
All my thoughts of you
For I'm so completely yours

Cry 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 joy and pain
My life's yours, love
Don't explain

You know that I love you
And what love endures
Nothing rates above you
For I'm so completely yours

Cry 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 joy and pain
My life's yours, love
Don't explain

    General CommentThe Persona is very clearly talking about her husband...or boyfriend...whoever she's "seeing" and he is very obviously cheating on her.

    It's her saying "I know you're cheating on me. Don't explain it to me. You're with me right now and that's all that matters. I have you right now, and I'm always yours."
