Please Don't Stanza So Close To Me
Musician, singer, lyricist, hot tantric guy - he has more than one market cornered. And then in 1998, Sting published "Shape Of My Heart," a compilation of his writing set to reproductions from Picasso. Sure, they're really lyrics, but when are lyrics not sometimes poetry and poetry not lyrics and Picasso's prints not illustrations for same? When Sting is being a card, apparently.
"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."
