Shape of my heart - Sting

Strophe) 

He deals the cards as a meditation 

And those he plays never suspect 

He doesn´t play for the money he wins 

He doesn´t play for respect 

 

He deals the cards to find the answers 

The sacred geometry of chance 

A hidden law of a probable outcome 

The numbers lead a dance 

 

 

Refrain) 

I know that the Spades are the swords of a soldier 

I know that the Clubs are weapons of war 

I know that Diamonds mean money for this art 

But that´s not the shape of my Heart 

 

Strophe) 

he may play the Jack of Diamonds 

He may lay the Queen of Spades 

He may conceal a King in his hand 

While the memory of it fades

 

Refrain) 

I know that the Spades are the swords of a soldier 

I know that the Clubs are weapons of war 

I know that Diamonds mean money for this art 

But that´s not the shape of my             Heart

 

Strophe) 

And if I told you that I loved you 

You´d maybe think there´s something wrong 

I´m not a man of too many faces 

The mask I wear is one 

 

Those (who) speak know nothing 

and find out to their cost 

Like those who curse their luck, in too many places 

those who fear are lost 

 

Refrain) 

I know that the Spades are the swords of a soldier 

I know that the Clubs are weapons of war 

I know that Diamonds mean money for this art 

But that´s not the shape of my Heart 

That´s not the shape, the shape of my            Heart ......
