Shape of My Heart – Lyrics with Chords

Verse 1

F#m                    C#m            Bm                  C#7
He deals the cards as a meditation
F#m                    C#m            Bm                  C#7
And those he plays never suspect
D                        D                     A                   C#7
He doesn’t play for the money he wins
D                        C#7               F#m
He doesn’t play for respect

Chorus 2

F#m                    C#m            Bm                  C#7
I know that the spades are swords of a soldier
F#m                    C#m            Bm                  C#7
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
D                        D                     A                   C#7
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
D                        C#7               F#m
But that’s not the shape of my heart

D                        C#7
That’s not the shape
D                        C#7
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

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 a loss

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
