Is the owner of a lonely heart much better than the owner of a broken heart?
My sister and I used to sing it owner of a broken goat.
I see the lonely heart as terrible, but better because it indicates to me the loss is buffered by acceptance, while the broken heart acts as a raw open wound that is unbuffered & fed by doubt, questions, & fears. Thank God I haven't had it.
Neither better, nor worse.
Yes. Get it? Yes!
I've suffered from both...one is chronic and the other acute. Neither is desirable.
Isn't the only possible answer Yes, even if it's really no?
I thought about trying to work that into the answers, like "Yes and yes" and "Yes and no", but I thought it might be too confusing.
I thought it was pretty great the way it was.
Nope. "It is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all."
Nifty twist. Well Yes of course.
Great song Zuko, but I always sing it "Owner of a bologna fart"
No, when you have a broken heart, you're both broken and lonely.
But some never find love while others though broken have hope and all time to heal.
No, for it is better to have love and lost than never to have loved before....
A lonely heart has the possibility of being instantaneously healed at any moment. A broken heart can take a lifetime to heal.
It really does.
Yes. It's better to be lonely than broken hearted.
No, but one of my favorite songs!
Yeah. I like it too. Although it's quite a departure from most of the rest of their stuff.
And I agree, no. I think they're off target on message.
Yes, it is different. (pun intended). :)
