Featured Unknown/Underrated Song*: "Conviction Of The Heart" by Kenny Loggins

Judged by Inside The Rock Era editors to be one of the Best in Category*, here is this great artist from Santa Barbara, California.  Kenny Loggins has put out a lot of great music, but not too much better than this undiscovered gem.  It was released as a single in 1991, and it was as though music directors were out on dates or something instead of listening to the music--it peaked at #65:
Convictiction Of The Heart
Kenny Loggins 

Written by Kenny Loggins and Guy Thomas 

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 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
One with everything in life
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 be forgiven?
It's been too many years of taking 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 your aware, believe, and you care, but...
Do you care enough
To talk with Conviction of the Heart?
