Conviction Of The Heart

Album: Leap Of Faith (1991)
Charted: 67
  • Where are the dreams that we once had?
    This is the time to bring them back.
    What were the promises caught
    On the tips of our tongues?

    Do we forget or forgive?
    There's a whole other life waiting to be lived when
    One day we're brave enough
    To talk with conviction of the heart.

    And down your streets I've walked alone,
    As if my feet were not my own
    Such is the path I chose,
    Doors I have opened and closed

    I'm so tired of living this life,
    Fooling myself, believing we're right when
    I've never given love
    With any conviction of the heart.

    One with the Earth, with the sky
    I believe we'll survive
    If we only try
    How long must we wait to change

    This world bound in chains that we live in
    To know what it is to forgive,
    And to be forgiven?
    It's been too many years of talking now.

    Isn't it time to stop somehow?
    Air that's too angry to breathe
    Water our children can't drink
    You've heard it hundreds of times

    You say you're aware, believe and you care, but
    Do you care enough
    To talk with conviction of the heart? Writer/s: KENNETH CLARK LOGGINS, GUY S. THOMAS

  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdKenny's guitarist Guy Thomas who co wrote the song filed suit against Garth Brooks claiming it sounded like one of his songs...
    The girl in the opening of the song is Kenny Loggins' daughter Isabella and the interlude before the guitar vamp begins is by New Age composer Mark Isham. It was also used at one of John Denver's Windstar Concerts in 1995 where Bella Loggins once again did the opening lines.
