Stonehill told us the story behind this track, including Keith Green's enthusiastic approach to writing: "Keith called me up in the middle of a busy afternoon in 1976. He said, 'Randy, Todd Fishkind came over to do some co-writing, and he played me the most beautiful chorus melody I think I have ever heard.'...And Keith said, 'Randy, you've got to come over right now, because I'm working on the verse melody, but God told me' - I started laughing to myself, it's like how are you going to argue with that? - 'God told me you're the guy that's going to write the lyrics. He's going to do mighty things with it. It's going to go all around the world.' And now he's shouting on the phone, I'm holding the phone back and reaching for my aspirin. Oh my gosh, this guy is like a force of nature." Stonehill continued: "So I got in the car, I drove to the house, and as I pulled up into the driveway you could hear the music wafting out onto the front lawn. Which is interesting, because his music room is all the way at the back of the house. But he was wailing and flailing, and it was so intense that you could hear the music even if you were standing on the front lawn. So I walked up to the porch, and Melody [Green] opened the screen door, and she had this kind of sweet, bemused look on her face. She hugged me hello and she pointed down the hall, and she said, 'He's waaaiiittting.' We loved him, but he was so unique and he could be like a bull in a china shop. He was like a hurricane you almost had to brace yourself for." Having heard Green play the melody, Stonehill came up with the lyrics to the song: "I said, 'All right, what about this? (singing) 'Like a foolish dreamer trying to build a highway to the sky,'' his arms shot up in the air and he went, 'Yeeess! Praise God! See? I knew you were the guy!'...I ended up writing most of the lyrics to that song that afternoon; he just trapped me in the music room for about three hours, I couldn't even go to the bathroom. He'd just go, 'No, no, no, come on, you're on it, you're on it. How's the second verse go?' And he's throwing a line or two from time to time, but basically he was just staring at me with a yellow legal pad and a pen, and a big smile on his face."
