tootie lyrics – 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 the words don’t seem to rhyme
and now you’re lying here
but my heart still beats for you

i 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
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 tryin’, and my heart still beats for you
