Walking on a String (Alternate Version)



The things you've said are hanging in the middle of my mind
Tonight, I can't turn 'em off
I try to worry for my soul but I forget to all the time
I'm in a twisted web and I can't pull my head from it

I think about you walking on a string
It always brings me back here
Into the garden by the hand
You've always had me walking on a string

I knew that I was dead before you touched my lonesome skin
You're never running out of ways to worm your way back in
I hang my head and feel the oxygen drain

I think about you walking on a string
And it always brings me back here
Into the garden by the hand
Anyone who knows what love is will understand
You've always had me walking on a string

In a web, I can't escape it
You'll always worm your way back in
To my lonesome soul and take it
You've always had me walking on a string
In a web, I can't escape it
You'll always worm your way back in
To my lonesome soul and take it
You've always had me walking on a string

It is 4:48 PM late Saturday afternoon or it could be early Saturday evening. It has been a cold sunny day today. It has been typical early Fall weather. A good day to mow the lawn and trim bushes.

I got up this morning around 8:05 AM. I slept down in the lower level last night because we had Josie Joy over for a sleep over. I got up ate breakfast and had a cup of coffee. I do not remember right now what I did this morning. I do not recall reading any of my books this morning. Josie stayed up with us till Noontime then she went home. Carol left to do errands after Josie went home.

I wrote in my paper diary and I mainly read today from a book titled, 'Swans/Sacrifice And Transcendence: The Oral History' by Nick Soulsby.

I watched a little college football this afternoon, but could not get into the game so we turned off the TV. I have been listening to the music of the Swans and waiting this day out. Tomorrow is a Sunday in the death flow.

I am trying to remember what I did last night. Carol and Josie went to bed around 9 o'clock PM. I stayed up and read from a novel titled, 'Familiar' a novel by J. Robert Lennon. I went down into the lower level for the night around 9:30 PM and filmed a video for my Youtube channel and went to bed around 10:45 PM. Now it is a early Saturday evening. Carol left to take a walk. I will close to face what comes next.
