"This is it" as written by and Van Mc Coy....
There've been times in my life,
I've been wonderin' why
Still, somehow I believed we'd always survive
Now, I'm not so sure
You're waiting here, one good reason to try
But, what more can I say? What's left to provide?

(You think that maybe it's over,)
(Only if you want it to be)
Are you gonna wait for a sign, your miracle?
Stand up and fight

(This is it)
Make no mistake where you are
(This is it)
Your back's to the corner
(This is it)
Don't be a fool anymore
(This is it)

The waiting is over, no, don't you run
No way to hide
No time for wonderin' why
It's here, the moment is now, about to decide
Let 'em believe
Leave 'em behind
But keep me near in your heart
Know whatever you do, I'm here by your side

(You say that maybe it's over)
(Not if you don't want it to be)
For once in your life, here's your miracle
Stand up and fight

(This is it)
Make no mistake where you are
(This is it)
You're goin' no further
(This is it)
Until it's over and done

(No one can tell what the future holds)
Oh oh oh oh
(Who makes the choice of how it goes?)
It's not up to me this time
(You know)
Comes a day in every life

(This is it)
Make no mistake where you are
(This is it)
You're goin' no further
(This is it)
Until it's over and done
(This is it)
One way or another
(This is it)
(No one can tell what the future holds)
(This is it)
Your back's to the corner
(This is it)
(You make the choice of how it goes)
(This is it)
The waiting is over
(This is it)
(No one can tell what the future holds)
(This is it)
You're goin' no further
(This is it)

    General CommentIt was originally a love song but then changed hi perspective on the song after visiting his father who had several strokes and pretty much had to choose between life and death. Loggins changed it from a 'love song' to a 'life song' in a tribute to his relationship with his father.

    General CommentThis is about a questionable relationship waiting for a miracle
    to survive. “”We’d always survive, Now I’m so sure…”
    “Let him believe, Or leave him behind, But keep ME in your heart”
    Also, God is by your side, but either keep the relationship or move on…
    Very complex lyrics, so brutally honest and real to ourselves…
