He deals/steals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays/blames never suspect
He doesn’t play for the money he wins
He don’t play for respect

He deals/steals the cards to find the answer
The sacred/secret geometry of chance
The hidden law/lord of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

C) Listen to the rest of the song and complete it with an appropriate expression:
I know that the ………… are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are …………. of war
I know that ……………… mean money for this ……..
But that’s not the shape of my heart

He may play the Jack of diamonds
He may lay the ……………. of spades
He may conceal a ……………….. in his hand
While the memory of it fades

I know that the ……………. are the swords of a soldier
I know that the …………… are ……………… of war
I know that …………… mean money for this ………..
But that’s not the shape of my heart
That’s not the shape, the shape of my heart

And if I …………… you that I loved you
You’d maybe think there’s something wrong
I’m not a man of …………… many faces
The mask I ………… is one

But those who ………… know nothing
And find out to ………….. cost
Like those …………… curse their luck in too many places
And those who ………….. 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
