New Song: Bonfire Heart

It’s a lyrical Thursday. So, I will introduce you to this song and leave the lyrics here for you. At first, I thought it was catchy and now I have it on repeat constantly. I love it. I love the chorus.

Bonfire Heart – James Blunt (you know… the guy who wrote “You’re Beautiful” and then kind of disappeared)

Watch Music Video Here!

The video is alright. The song itself is best.

LYRICS!

“Bonfire Heart”

Your mouth is a revolver
Firing bullets in the sky
Your love is like a soldier,
Loyal ’til you die
And I’ve been looking at the stars
For a long, long time
I’ve been putting out fires
All my life

Everybody wants a flame,
They don’t want to get burnt
And today is our turn

Days like these lead to…
Nights like this lead to
Love like ours.
You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
People like us—we don’t
Need that much, just some-
One that starts,
Starts the spark in our bonfire hearts

This world is getting colder.
Strangers passing by
No one offers you a shoulder.
No one looks you in the eye.
But I’ve been looking at you
For a long, long time
Just trying to break through,
Trying to make you mine

Everybody wants a flame,
They don’t want to get burnt
Well, today is our turn

Days like these lead to…
Nights like this lead to
Love like ours.
You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
People like us—we don’t
Need that much, just some-
One that starts,
Starts the spark in our bonfire hearts

Our bonfire hearts
Our bonfire hearts
Our bonfire hearts
You light the spark

People like us—we don’t
Need that much, just some-
One that starts,
Starts the spark in our bonfire hearts

Days like these lead to…
Nights like this lead to
Love like ours.
You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
People like us—we don’t
Need that much, just some-
One that starts,
Starts the spark in our bonfire hearts

(Our bonfire hearts)

(Days like these lead to…
Nights like this lead to
Love like ours.
You light the spark in my bonfire heart.*)
People like us—we don’t
Need that much, just some-
One that starts,
Starts the spark in our bonfire hearts

The Most Beautiful Lyrics

I have been listening, really listening to music lately. I have marveled in the beauty of how some words can really just hit home for me so I thought that I would love to share some of what I consider the most beautiful slices of lyrics out there. P.S. I am a huge indie/alternative fan so you’ll probably be seeing lyrics from mostly that genre.

I Believe In You-Tyler Hilton

No, it don’t feel like sleep when I’m this alive it’s true, I believe in you

I Can’t Make You Love Me- Bon Iver

‘Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I’ll feel the power
But you won’t, no you won’t

Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)- Hillsong United

And keep my eyes above the waves, When oceans rise

A Drop In The Ocean- Ron Pope

It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert, But I’m holding you closer than most ’cause you are my heaven

What Now- Rihanna

Whatever it is, it feels like it’s laughing at me through the glass of a two-sided mirror Whatever it is, it’s just sitting there laughing at me, And I just wanna scream

 John Doe- B.O.B. Ft. Priscilla

Seems like the bus moves slower
Just cause you got somewhere to go
So you take a few pills in Beverly Hills
But if anyone asks you’ve got a prescription
You got an addiction
Who do you think that you’re fooling?

Runaway-Aurora

And I was running far away
Would I run off the world someday?
Nobody knows, nobody knows
And I was dancing in the rain
I felt alive and I can’t complain
But now take me home
Take me home where I belong
I got no other place to go

Little Hell-City and Colour

My war ships are lying off the coast of your delicate heart
And my aim is steady and true as it’s been right from the start

I’ll dig for water and fashion our very own wishing well

Then we’ll throw our coins down hoping to rid of us of this little hell

Don’t Dream It’s Over- Crowded House

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Call Me- Shinedown

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it’s over I’ll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it’s over I don’t want you to hurt
It’s all that I can say. So, I’ll be on my way

I finally put it all together,
But nothing really lasts forever
I had to make a choice that was not mine,
I had to say goodbye for the last time

AND END LYRICS! These are probably mood specific at the moment but they’re just either really simple and true or just poetic. PLEASE share your favorite lyrics below!

Until Next Time,

Netflix Necessities and Must Watch List

Ahhh, Netflix. The source of my happiness and procrastination. I’m sure you feel the same. One of the strongest moments of indecision I have had in the past few weeks is choosing a new series or movie to watch when I have down time.

Google Images.

Google Images.

It’s like the last show you had was building a solid relationship with you and when it ended, your heart cried a little. You go through the list of recommendations others have given you but you refuse to believe a show could be better than the gem you just watched. You aimlessly scroll past shows that you’ve heard of or have a slight interest in but you just can’t bring yourself to press play unless you know it will make you as hooked as the last show.

Your prayers have been answered for those of you who have the same likes as me.

I don’t mind fantasy but I need a solid plot line with meaningful plot twists and romance thrown in somehow. As long as that is present in a series or movie, it will most likely keep me hooked. So below I listed some favorites and explained the strongest argument for watching them.

One Tree Hill: You probably have heard of this show from one of it’s fan girls. However, it’s not just for the sappy women out there. I do know a few gentlemen who got hooked into it’s plot line. Here’s why. It has a growing plot line through the whole series, new characters emerge, the drama doesn’t get overboard and you get emotionally attached to each character.

Dexter: This is my current series. I didn’t think I would like this show that much but after the first few episodes, I was completely drawn in and interested by the unique story line. This is so different from any other crime show you watch. It has humor, darkness, mystery, insane plot twists and a bit of romance. I’ve watched two seasons in one week… oops.

House: If you haven’t heard of house, you’re living under a rock. This show is absolutely hilarious and constantly keeps you on your toes. In my opinion, it’s the best hospital show out there. The dark humor and mystery are great traits of this show. Every episode is a new mystery and there’s an underlying plot line that continues throughout the show.

Vampire Diaries: This is one of my all time favorite shows. There is fantasy, drama, romance, mystery, and humor all wrapped perfectly into clever plot lines. The story line moves slow in some parts that makes you want to scream with the suspense but perfectly in other areas. You will always be kept guessing because there is no signs to predict what will happen next. You know how you can get feelings from shows and take a guess what is going to happen? You won’t see half of the plot twists coming.

I love to find stories on my down time. I love to see stories revealed and connect emotionally with characters. Half of me feels like I am studying for my future career and half of my feels so relaxed. Finding that next wonderful series is like a treasure hunt and the listed shows are gold.

Let me know your other favorites in the comments below!

Until tomorrow,

Magic Lives in Movies

We willingly go into a theater that can leave us heartbroken, angry or searching the corners of our minds for answers. We know half the story line before we purchase our ticket and as we sit down in the dimly lit theater, we take our first step into the magic a movie theater can offer.

2014.

2014.

As the music plays and people trickle in, we chuckle and talk-whisper about the drama in our day. We overhear people guess about what’s going to happen or how the movie will be.

We anxiously check the time on our phones until the lights fade out and trailers start playing, adding on to your list of must-sees. When the opening titles hit the screen, we turn our bodies toward the screen and get a wave of excitement for the journey that’s about to begin.

The movies that create magic grab our attention from beginning to end. We are so involved in the movie that time is irrelevant and you don’t realize how emotionally invested you are until the climax hits you hard. At this point, one particular emotion can slam into your soul until the movie ends. Sometimes you find a sweet ending, sometimes you are left with this emotion that will be on your mind for the rest of the day.

Great movies will do this to you. When you think of a movie for the rest of the day, that is a movie that deserves a round of applause. It’s different for everyone, of course. You won’t love every movie, that’s why there are so many in the world.

It’s a mini-getaway. It’s a place that can take your mind off your troubles and give you an escape that can make you feel inspired or just happy.

And to me, that’s pretty magical.

Until tomorrow,

Anna Marie ❤
