How does it feel, when everyone surrounds you?
How do you deal, do crowds make you feel lonely?
What do you say? When people go and try to pin you down?
Acquaintances smile, but there's no understanding.
Now after a while, you keep falling off the same mountain.
Try to explain it, but nothing really gets them that high.
Steal away in the morning, love's already history to you
It's a habit you're forming, 
this body's desperate for something new
Just a matter of feeling.
This moment's madness sure to pass
And tears will dry as you're leaving
Who knows you might find something to last..
Emotion's a game,saved up for a rainy Monday
But you laugh just the same,'cause it's been pouring on Sunday
Call up your numbers never let the zeros bring you down.
How does it feel?
Is time too heavy to hold? whatever you decide for the moment is holy.
whenever you slow down to see nothing's passing by.                        (chorus)
(You can..)(chorus)
A matter of feeling..
A matter of feeling..
A matter of feeling..                                                 Blood will flow and tears will cry 
A matter of feeling..
