Song Lyric Sunday on Tuesday (posted Wed.) Yes: Owner of a Lonely Heart

You might not find similarities between Helena’s Song Lyric Sunday: John Mayer, I’m Gonna Find Another You, and Yes, Owner of a Lonely Heart. But for me, lyrics of both songs speak to me at a level that is souldeep and heartwide. Both are songs of searching or needing to.

Owner of a Lonely Heart

Move yourself
You always live your life
Never thinking of the future
Prove yourself
You are the move you make
Take your chances win or loser
See yourself
You are the steps you take
You and you – and that’s the only way
Shake – shake yourself
You’re every move you make
So the story goes
Owner of a lonely heart
Owner of a lonely heart
Much better than a
Owner of a broken heart
Owner of a lonely heart
Say – you don’t want to chance it
You’ve been hurt so before
Watch it now
The eagle in the sky
How he dancin’ one and only
You – lose yourself
No not for pity’s sake
There’s no real reason to be lonely
Be yourself
Give your free will a chance
You’ve got to want to succeed
Owner of a lonely heart
Owner of a lonely heart
Much better than – a
Owner of a broken heart
Owner of a lonely heart
Owner of a lonely heart
After my own indecision
They confused me so
Owner of a lonely heart
My love said never question your will at all
In the end you’ve got to go
Look before you leap
Owner of a lonely heart
And don’t you hesitate at all – no no
Owner of a lonely heart
Owner of a lonely heart
Much better than – a
Owner of a broken heart
Owner of a lonely heart
(repeat)
Owner of a lonely heart
Sooner or later each conclusion
Will decide the lonely heart
Owner of a lonely heart
It will excite it will delight
It will give a better start
Owner of a lonely heart
Don’t deceive your free will at all
Don’t deceive your free will at all
Owner of a lonely heart
Don’t deceive your free will at all
Just receive it

(Yes, 1983)

      Glad you like it. Yes is still one of my favs and a “go back to” when I want to listen to a certain sort of music.

    I’ve heard this song so many times but I’m not sure I ever really paid attention to the lyrics. They are fantastic!! We are so much more than broken hearts. Great choice! ❤️
