Shape of My Heart

Ini salah satu lagu Sting yang saya suka musikalitas dan liriknya. Sting rasanya bisa disebut sebagai pemusik jenius dalam hal lirik. Bahkan penggalan melodi gitar yang membuka lagu ini begitu membekas dikuping hingga digunakan lagi dalam lagu Rise and Fall-nya Craig David.

Tapi maap. Saya bukan orang yang canggih-canggih amat dengan musik. Jauh-lah dari orang seperti Danny Sakrie. Hehehe… Kalo ndak salah, saya mengenal Sting dari seorang Eric Sasono saat masih kelayapan di Depok dulu. Thanks buat Eric. Sting memang top-markotop lah…

Ini lirik dari lagu yang saya dapat dari sebuah situs pengumpul lirik lagu. Betulkan kata saya, bagus kan syairnya?

“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 doesn’t play for the respect

 He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of 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
That’s not the shape, 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
That’s not the shape of my heart
