The Unwinding Cable Car (4:19)

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.

Your motive, unstable
You're like an unwinding cable car
Listening for voices
But it's the choices that make us who we are
