The Unwinding Cable Car (4:19)

Cover of Cities

From Cities and 4 other releases

This personal song is about those people who do not see how truly amazing they really are, they seem to give up before they see what life is about to show them. (Exodus 17).

I can remember running down the street lamp lit hill on Pine street in Seattle after I wrote the song, exhilarated with how it turned out.

    This is what Christianity (or faith of any kind) is supposed to be but all too often falls at least as short as my agnosticism. It's a thing of beauty.

    I love this song. The second I hear it start, I will always stop whatever I'm doing and just listen to the whole thing. So beautiful and so much emotion.
