                Shape of My Heart  -  Sting  from "Ten Summoner's Tales" album
                      Transcription: Luis Ferreira



  This is NOT the way Dominic Miller plays it. I've got Sting's concert in
Oslo (1994) in videocassette and it is definitely harder than this.
  Dominic Miller uses an electric-shaped acoustic guitar, which makes it
easier to play in the high frets as he does.
  The names of the chords might not be correct, too.

( If you want to play with the record, then use a capo on the 2nd fret )


Intro:
        Em                Bm                 Am                       B

{ Repeat the intro for each verse }
{ You may find it nice to play  A---2~\0-- between each verse. I do :) }

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 answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

I know that the spades are 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 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

Em  Em7  C              B7?
         That's not the shape    The shape of my heart


Now there's a change in key, which goes something like:

        Bm               F#m                 Em                    F#

E---3--------------------|--2^0-----------|-----------|--3--3--|--2--|--2--|-

Bm7  G  F#7  Em    ( And now back to the original key )

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 smile are lost

I know that the spades are 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

Em  Em7  C               B7?         Em
         That's not the shape of my heart
    Em7  C              B7?
         That's not the shape   The shape of my heart

Repeat the intro, and while the    e----12--|--
last Em is still ringing, play:    B---12---|--
        Enjoy!                     G--12----|--
