Sweet Little Mystery - John Martyn
It’s that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
It’s that sweet little mystery makes you cry
That sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
Sweet little mystery makes you try.

My friends all tell me that I look so sad
They don’t need to ask me why
They know the reason that I feel so bad
Since the night you said goodbye

It’s not the letters that you just don’t write
It’s not the arms of some new friend
It’s not the crying in the dead of the night
That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end.

It’s that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
It’s that sweet little mystery makes you cry
That sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
Sweet little mystery makes you try.

I watch the street, I watch the radio
I don’t need to turn it on
Another friend comes by and tries to say hello
Another weekend’s almost gone

It’s not the letters that you just don’t write
It’s not the arms of some new friend
It’s not the crying in the dead of the night
That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end.

It’s that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
It’s that sweet little mystery makes you cry
That sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
Sweet little mystery makes you try.

It’s that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
It’s that sweet little mystery makes you cry
That sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
Sweet little mystery makes you try.

The time is flyin’ fast and I don’t care
to spend another night alone
I want to see you, but I don’t know where
Till then I’m walkin’ on my own

It’s not the letters that you just don’t write
It’s not the arms of some new friend
It’s not the crying in the dead of the night
That keeps me hanging on, just waiting for the end.

It’s that sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
It’s that sweet little mystery makes you cry
That sweet little mystery that’s in your heart
Sweet little mystery makes you try.

Sweet mystery, sweet sweet mystery
Sweet little mystery ...sweet... little mystery
