好歌同享 -- Shape of my heart



最近,經常看到一個香水廣告裏面的妮妲莉寶雯(Natalie Portman),讓我想起了當年只有十三嵗,她擔綱主演的一齣電影,《這個殺手不太冷 / ‎Léon》。
著名演員尚連奴(Jean Reno),在電影裏飾演殺手‎Léon,偶然救了鄰家小姑娘一命,之後的相處,改變了他對人生的看法。

喜歡《這個殺手不太冷》這電影,更喜歡由英國著名歌手Sting演繹的主題曲,“Shape of my heart”;歌詞提及占卜紙牌裏的階磚、葵扇、梅花,其中象徵愛的紅心,才是最能夠代表Leon真實的内心世界,反映出對命運有一些無奈的含意。

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
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

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
