It's that ......

You could drop it off but it's a good way to make a connection with what you're saying now with what you have just said previously.

We do it in English too.

I really do like him. It's just that he has such bad breath! :p

In Mexico I found that some speakers would begin many a sentence with "Lo que pasa es que..." "What's going on is that..." It's a wordy but harmless way of introducing an explanation, providing a reason. As Kiwi Girl says, we do it too. "Pues" or sometimes "pos" also be used to kick-start a common.
