Real love is the only thing I know
It changes everything it touches
It gets you in it's gentle clutches
But that's not really the heart of the matter

Everbody, every now and then
We'll say that they can use
Some solitude
Even though you've said it kinda rude
That's not really the heart of the matter

I think that really the heart of the matter
Isn't that you're going away to think and be alone
I think you feel
Your love for me is gone
I think that's really the heart of the matter after all

Darling, I know every now and then
Some nights I lay real easy on your mind
You might hold your pillow you might cry
That's not really the heart of the matter

I think that really the heart of the matter
Isn't that you're going away to think and be alone
I think you feel
Your love for me is gone
I think that's really the heart of the matter after all

Yes I thinks that's really the heart of the matter
After all
