Kenny Loggins - Conviction of the Heart
(Chords are close approximation, refer to chord chart at the bottom for exact chord positions)

D5            G5                  D5
Where are the dreams that we once had
            G5                 Bm
This is the time to bring them back
              Em
What were the promises
Bm            Em                     Em11/F#    G5
Caught on the tips of our tongues?
A     Bm        A       Dsus4                 D    G5                   Gsus2  G5
Do we forget or forgive There's a whole other life waiting to be lived
         A         Em    A      Em Em11/F#   G          A
When One day we're brave enough To talk with Conviction of the Heart.

(Repeat Twice See Chord Chart)
    D/F#          G5       Gm9/A    A

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

Chorus

D            Bm           G                Em   A        D
One with the earth, with the sky, one with everything in life
     Bm            G       Em      A (open bar position)
I believe we'll survive If we only try
                 G5
How long must we all wait to change

     D/F#                          Em   A
This world bound in chains that we live in
Em              G
To know what it is to forgive,

          D/F#      G5  Gsus2  G5
And be forgiven

(Verse)
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 Where's your conviction of the Heart?

(Chorus)
One with the earth, with the sky, one with everything in life.
I believe it will start with conviction of the heart.
One earth, one sky, only one world, only one chance for one life.
When will we live? One child, one dream, only one life.
You've but one chance for one life. When will we live?
Only one earth, and only one sky, and only one world.
We've only got one chance to live in one life.
I believe, it's only gonna start when we begin with some conviction of the heart.

Play around with the chords and find something comfortable to work with.
Try muting the strings in the first part of the verse.
Any way I hope this helps get you started, of course its my interpretation so its far 
from perfect.
