  • You ain't crazy
    I ain't gonna lie anymore
    What you're feelin'
    there's a reason for
    I want to do right
    Oh, I gotta do right
    Do I love you?
    Oh, you know I've tried
    But what you're after
    You can't find in my eyes
    I want to do right
    Darlin'
    Tell the truth
    Don't turn away
    This is our last chance
    To touch each others hearts
    Does anything last forever?
    I don't know
    Maybe we're near the end
    Darlin' oh how can we go on together
    Now that we've grown apart
    Well the only way to start
    Is heart to heart
    One by one
    We're collecting lies
    When you can't give love
    You give alibis
    Now I'm gonna do right
    This time I gotta do right
    I don't want to leave
    I don't want to say good-bye
    But sooner or latter
    There comes a time
    When you gotta do right
    Darlin'
    Tell the truth
    Don't turn away
    This is our last chance
    To touch each others hearts
    Does anything last forever?
    I don't know
    Maybe we're near the end
    Darlin' how can we go on together
    Now that we've grown apart
    Well the only way to start
    Is heart to heart
    Why are you so torn apart?
    I need a little more lovin' in my heart
    People say that love will grow
    So how was I to know
    Love that's come through years and years
    Can't find a way back home anymore
    (SOLO)
    Darlin'
    Tell the truth
    Don't turn away
    This is our last chance
    To touch each others hearts
    Does anything last forever?
    I don't know
    But maybe we're near the end
    So darlin' oh how can we go on together
    Now that we've grown apart
    Well the only way to start
    Is heart to heart
    Does anything last forever?
    I don't know
    But maybe we're near the end
    So darlin' oh how can we go on together
    Now that we've grown apart
    Well the only way to start
    Is heart to heart

  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenYes, that is Michael McDonald in the background, plus a sax solo from David Sanborn.
  • Shannon Summers from UsHeart To Heart

    Arranged By [Strings] – Marty Paich Backing Vocals – Richard Page, Steve George Bass – Derek Jackson Congas – Paulinho Da Costa Drums – Tris Imboden Electric Piano [Rhodes] – Michael McDonald Engineer – Bruce Botnick Grand Piano – David Foster Guitar – Mike Hamilton (4)Percussion – Lenny Castro Saxophone ["Artistic Debris"] – David Sanborn Written-By – David Foster, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald

    Per DISCOGS..Maybe Sara is on to something, however in the same breathe there is no way that McDonald never opened his lips and threw some harmonies in there while playing the piano on this track. You def hear him!
  • Markantney from BiloxeAug 15,

    Sara, how do you NOT hear McDonald's distinctive voice in the Background Vocals? If that's not him, it's not him on Christopher Cross' "Ride Like the Wind", Steely Dan's "Peg", Loggins "This is It", and I'm sure that's him the background singing at every drivethrough at Fast Food Places I can hear background vocals coming through the speakers:):).
  • Rev.christopher from United StatesSorry Sara, but Michael McDonald not only co-wrote Heart To Heart with Kenny Loggins, but also sang background vocals on the recording.
  • Shirl from Bay Area, CaIn an interview, Kenny Loggins said he wrote this song about his parents seperation and their impending divorce.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdThe song is similar to I Gotta Try which appears on the same album and was also ironically a Mike McDonald original.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdThe backup voices were by Richard Page and Steve George, not Michael McDonald. Both Page and George were members of the Pages later Mr. Mister. Co-written with David Foster who plays piano with Michael McDonald. It is a very swoonful piecee
