Owner of A Lonely Heart

Bagi yang pernah terluka, konon ‘kesepian’ lebih baik daripada ‘patah hati’. Begitukah? 😉

Lagu ini menjadi single pertama album Yes, 90125, yang dirilis tahun 1983. Album “90125” menjadi titik masuk Yes memasuki dekade 80-an dengan penggunaan efek khusus gitar dan synthesizers. Kehadiran mereka juga sering menjadikan penikmatnya tercengang-cengang dengan permainan rumit mereka. Adalah Ahmet Ertegun dari Atlantic Records yang yakin lagu ini bakal menjadi hit. Seperti diketahui, Ertegun punya andil terhadap nama-nama besar seperti Aretha Franklin, Led Zeppelin, dan banyak nama lain.

“Owner of A Lonely Heart” ditulis Jon Anderson, Trevor Horn, Trevor Rabin, dan Chris Squire. Namun sang lead vocal, Anderson, mengaku hanya menambahi bagian sedikit. Anderson sendiri saat itu baru kembali bergabung setelah meninggalkan grup ini pada tahun 1980. “Move yourself, you always live your life never thinking of the future.” Itulah kalimat yang dilengkapi Anderson.

Pada awal tahun ’84, lagu ini sempat merajai chart di Amerika dan UK untuk waktu yang cukup lama.

“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 decision
They confused me so
My love said never question your will at all
In the end you’ve got to go
Look before you leap
And don’t you hesitate at all – no no
Owner of a lonely heart

Owner of a lonely heart

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
It will excite it will delight
It will give a better start

Owner of a lonely heart

Owner of a lonely heart

Don’t deceive your free will at all
Don’t deceive your free will at all
Don’t deceive your free will at all
Just receive it

Owner of a lonely heart
