Spending Time in an Inconsequential Manner

I used to listen to and sang a lot of this song back when it was first released. While I could not remember why it resonated so much, tonight it seems so apt. And while killing time trying to chase my blues away, it is the only thing that I want to hear.

Tootie by Hootie & The Blowfish
You put a rose in my hand
Put a dollar in my pocket
But you don’t understand
How the days grow longer, the sky is black as night
I see the morning but you won’t see the light

I thought about you for a long, long time
I wrote about you but my words don’t seem to rhyme
And now you’re lying here
But my heart still beats for you

Had a dream about you
You sat right down beside me
And you told me we were through
It was all so real and you told me reasons why
You brought me to the window
And you taught me how to fly

I thought about you for a long, long time
I said I love you but we just don’t have the time
And now you’re lying here
But my heart still beats for you

I thought to hold you for a long, long time
You said I love you but my heart won’t seem to chime in
And now you’re lying here
And my heart still beats for you…I’m trying, and my heart still beats for you
