This research aims to analyze the conceptual metaphors in Kahitna song lyrics which contain the metaphorical expression. There are two research problems in this research: (i) What are the conceptual metaphors in Kahitna song lyrics? (ii) What are the image schemas of metaphors in Kahitna song lyrics? This research used a descriptive qualitative method to describe the metaphors of love and heart used in the Kahitna song. This research used Lakoff and Johnson’s (1980) and Kovecses’s (2010) conceptual metaphor to determine the metaphor’s target domain and source domain. This research also used Saeed’s (2016) image schema to understand the patterns formed from the experience and used in the metaphor as a source domain that explains other experiences. The researcher collected the data of this research from Kahitna popular song lyrics taken from Youtube. The researcher identified the song lyric’s target domain and source domain by mapping to reveal the conceptual metaphor in Kahitna song lyrics. Then the researcher analyzed the image schema of each metaphor as a basis for organizing knowledge and reasoning. The result of this research reveals that there are nine conceptual metaphors in Kahitna song lyrics. Those are “Passion of Love is Sea,” “Love Story is Journey,” “Difficulty in Relationship is Journey,” “Goal of the Lovers is Journey,” “Deepest Heart is Sea,” “Heart is Container,” “Love is Container,” “Love is Concrete Object,” and “Longing is Waves.” This result is obtained by metaphorical mapping. The researcher used metaphorical mapping to identify the target domain and the source domain in song lyrics. Furthermore, the researcher also revealed the image schema of each metaphor. The researcher found three kinds of image schema, Containment schema, Path Schema, and Force Schema.
