Meet Me Half Way Lyrics - Kenny Loggins
In a lifetime
made of memories
I believe in destiny
Every moment returns again in time
When I've got the future on my mind
know that you'll be the only one
Meet me halfway
across the sky
Out where the world belongs
to only you and I
Meet me halfway
across the sky
Make this a new beginning
of another life
In a lifetime
there is only love
Reaching for the lonely one
We are stronger when we are given love
When we put emotions on the line
know that we are the timeless ones
(chorus to fade)

Loggins was born in Everett, Washington and raised in Alhambra, California, where he formed a band called The Second Helping. This band released three singles during 1968 and 1969 on Viva. Greg Shaw described the efforts as "excellent punky folk-pop records" that were written by Loggins who was likely to be the bandleader and singer as well; Shaw included "Let Me In" on both Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 2 and the Pebbles, Volume 9 CD.
During his early twenties, he was part of the band Gator Creek with Mike Deasy. An early version of "Danny's Song" (later recorded by Loggins and Messina) was included in a record on Mercury Records.
Loggins and Messina
Loggins continued his career during the 1970s. After attracting the attention of fellow singer-songwriter Jim Messina, the two began a duo career as Loggins and Messina, which lasted until 1976. During 1977, Loggins produced his first solo album, Celebrate Me Home, which included the successful song "I Believe In Love," sung originally by Barbra Streisand in A Star Is Born. Nightwatch, a popular album released during 1978, included the success "Whenever I Call You Friend", a duet with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac, though co-written with Melissa Manchester. He followed this during 1979 with Keep the Fire.
Loggins also wrote the song "What A Fool Believes" with Michael McDonald. Each man recorded his own version of the song, with McDonald's recording his version as a member of The Doobie Brothers. Loggins's version was released first, but The Doobie Brothers' version achieved greater success, scoring #1 on the popular music charts. During 1980, Loggins and McDonald received a Grammy for Song of the Year for "What A Fool Believes".
During 1979, Loggins and McDonald wrote "This Is It" for Loggins's ailing father, who had to choose between life and death. The song earned Loggins a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal. NBC used the song as theme music for its coverage of the NCAA men's basketball tournament during 1980 and 1981.
