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 
That's not the shape 
The shape of my heart 

If I told her 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

But 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 
That's not the shape 
The shape of my heart
