owner of a lonely heart

This morning as I was walking at the gym, I heard an old song by the band Yes.  You might recognize it …

“Owner of a lonely heart / Much better than a / Owner of a broken heart …”

I’ve heard that song countless times.  I can even hum the tune (not necessarily in tune).

This morning I thought to myself, “Really?  Is an owner of a lonely heart really in better shape than the owner of a broken heart?  I don’t think I’d like to have either one.”

And then I kept walking.
