“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 lose her

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

– Yes –

Da cosa nasce cover…

“Wild world”

L’originale

“Wild wold” è uno dei brani più conosciuti di Cat Stevens (al secolo Steven Demetre Georgiou), cantautore folk britannico che nel 1995 si sarebbe convertito all’Islam col nome di Yusuf Islam.

Il brano diede una grande notorietà al suo autore e raggiunse la posizione n° 11 della Billboard Hot 100 negli Stati Uniti.

Nel corso di una lunga intervista rilasciata a Billboard, Cat Stevens ha parlato, tra l’altro, del significato della canzone “Wilde world”, affermando che “Wild World’ è stata davvero la mia canzone di addio alla mia ragazza Patti D’Arbanville. Ci siamo divertiti un molto insieme, ma io iniziai a registrare e lei faceva la modella e semplicemente eravamo in due mondi diversi. E poiché avevo avuto esperienza sul cadere, sapevo che c’erano molti pericoli là fuori quindi è stato un po’ come me parlare a me stesso della mia seconda carriera che stavo per intraprendere e anche parlare con lei sulla sua carriera. In pratica, in quel momento ci eravamo divisi, e quella era l’ode alla nostra separazione”. (fonte: qui)

“Wild World”

Now that I’ve lost everything to you
You say you wanna start something new
And it’s breakin’ my heart you’re leavin’
Baby, I’m grievin’
But if you wanna leave, take good care
I hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world
I’ll always remember you like a child, girl

You know I’ve seen a lot of what the world can do
And it’s breakin’ my heart in two
Because I never wanna see you sad girl
Don’t be a bad girl
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware, beware

Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world
I’ll always remember you like a child, girl

Baby, I love you
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware, beware

Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world
I’ll always remember you like a child, girl

Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wild world
And I’ll always remember you like a child, girl

– Cat Stevens –
