Sting,  The shape of my Heart

He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn’t play for the money he wins
He don’t play for respect
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance
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
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
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
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
And those who fear are lost
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

  1. Natalie Potrman from such an early age, what an amazingly talented actress…Jean Reno so great in this movie too! The international uncut version Leon was so much better…loved those extra scenes. Sting really works well here.

    • The scene is very different, puritanically repressed around here…It is one other instrument of oppression and censure of the arts, and it is all political and hypocritical of course. What would’ve cinema scene without the Discovery of Natalie Portman, by Luc Besson and his crew, it’s hard to imagine. And yes the innocence of that movie is a metaphor of people who serve the cause of good, in the most unseemingly circumstance: At the end, the only symbol left, from Leon, his plant, not only survives but grows roots, settles down at last.
      I love all LUc Besson movies, and Reno’s too, but I think Leon was the best (maybe Nikita? No…no…

      Definitely Leon!

      Nice Chat Morning Berrys,

  2. Part of me sympathized with the man but he was who he was and therefore unworthy of my regard. He and the young girl were perfect in their acting.

    • It’s Art Carl, it’s Europe, it’s Luc Besson…It’s an allegory, an innocent way of giving one unworthy life, for the one that lost everything, too early, to really unworthy, parent, siblings and some crooked feds! All good Carl, nothing happened! 🙂
