Went to the crossroads
Let's stay awhile
Watch the sunrise this one last time
Don't say forever I couldn't bear the meaning
I know we can't stay together
But still we can't say goodbye.

Guess...
It's just a matter of fact that you only see me smiling
If I don't feel it inside it's not for want of trying
Now we saw eye to eye
Don't want you to see me crying
It's just a matter of fact.

I hold your picture in my point of view
When I look closer it doesn't look like you
As if the movie is over when I don't understand it
Still don't know each other
Maybe we never wanted to.

Yeah...
It's just a matter of fact that you only see me smiling
If I don't feel it inside it's not for want of trying
Now we saw eye to eye
Don't want you to see me crying
It's just a matter of fact.

Turn around now that the night is gone
Blew away into the haze (blown away)

Now it's gone
Ooooooooh. . .

It's just a matter of fact that you only see me smiling
If I don't feel it inside it's not for want of trying
Never saw eye to eye
Don't want you to see me crying
It's just a matter of fact.
Oooooh
It's just a matter of fact
It's just a matter of fact

    General CommentThis song sounds to Me as if Simon doesn't understand why he & Yas(?) don't love eachother as they Use to. To me this song basically about falling in love, only to find yourself not feeling as deeply in Love as you once thought You felt for another. :D
