Shape of My Heart – JCD Cover

I adore this song….  its just, beautiful – very elegant and such a sweet melody. I took the entire day and enjoyed singing… just simply recorded in my (unpadded) humble office – no sound equipment – just, Garage band and a set of headphones. I pray one day, I can record in a beautiful studio again…. if anyone listening/reading this post wants to give me that chance… don’t be  shy – use the CONTACT form !

Backing track (these two wonderful musicians are hero’s in my book – revolutionizing the classically trained to do ‘out of the box’ work – they seriously rock – and I adore them – I hope my humble singing effort does justice to their beautiful work):  2CELLOS – Shape Of My Heart [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Lyrics… read on:

“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 don’t play for respect

He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
[Studio version:] The hidden law of a probable outcome
[Live version:] The hidden laws 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

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

    • Thank you dear Sandy…. I adore this song. Its more difficult to sing than it sounds – and as a female version, I pushed myself to hit those high notes – and it took some doing to get it to a point I am happy with (for this effort at least!). This song speaks to me of the perfection of ‘chance’ in the scheme of our lives.. for nothing is by chance… not when one looks back and reflects on how things work out for us all. Its one of the most elegant of songs, and should be sung with tenderness…. the feeling is of great beauty; and we all need that in our lives. I appreciate your kind comment – and that is exactly how I spent the day singing…. tenderly. Its always a precious day, to be able to sing. xxx jcd.
