“Don’t Explain”

Hush now, don’t explain –
Just say you’ll remain.
I’m glad you’re back.
Don’t explain.

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.

Don’t explain.

— Lyrics by Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog Jr.
