Leap of Faith

Album: Leap of Faith (1991)

Songfacts®:

  • Heavy on guitar and percussion, Loggins describes this song as having appeared in a dream. It was written while he and his future (second) wife Julia were on a romantic adventure in Hawaii. It tells of a man (Kenny) who feels the "mountains disappear without a trace." The song is clearly one man's dream of finding his love again. Of course Kenny is the man in the song!
  • Kenny wrote this and "Sweet Reunion" (another song he wrote in a letter to Julia) on a cabin off Highway One.
  • Smokey Robinson and Sheryl Crow make cameo appearances singing background on this track. >>
