This is a hospital song. If Tessa hadn't had her adventure this song probably wouldn't have been written. When a talkative guy like me starts to lose words, and thoughts, something is up. The silver lining is we were forced to slow down. This was needed and very healthy. One of my new favorite things to do is walk around my neighborhood. Who would have thought there's a fake life size giraffe and a stone dog right around the corner. Crazy! Alex shifting out of Anchor Down to get married helped this song out a bit as did Heart Full of Snakes' sea shanties. Keep it going guys!


My life was spinning round and round never minutes to slow down
then God he put his finger down & everything is upside down

chorus: I'm putting my anchor down, walking around this town.
I'm putting my feet in my shoes and my socks and walking around these neighborhood blocks

As minutes slowly turned to weeks, and every thing felt oh so bleak
There's kindness in the words you speak, but on these days I'm feeling meek


My life was spinning round & round & like a boy with out a frown
I'm happy with this freedom I have found! I'm happy with this freedom I have found!


from Until My Ankle's Better, released August 13, 2010
