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

My heart beats to a good song.

I believe that music has the opportunity to say what words can’t, make you feel what people cannot, and lift you up higher than a spaceship. I think that when two people have the same taste in music, they have the potential to have a really strong relationship (friend or more). Therefore, I’m cutting off a chunk of my life and handing it to your ears in hopes that you and I can make a connection and become friends (or maybe just feel a little less lonely in the world).

One Republic Concert. 2014. How can you not feel incredible in this moment?

One Republic Concert. 2014. How can you not feel incredible in this moment?

I don’t know if you feel this way, but for a while, I was really protective of my music taste. I wouldn’t really share my favorite songs with people because they were always really different than the majority. Strangely enough, when I started jamming out to my favorite genre- which I could best describe as Indie/Indie Pop- I was shocked to see how many others would come to love some of the songs I did. It was the beginning of some of the best friendships I have, including one of those friendships turning into my relationship I am in now.

I am sure you could think of at least 5 songs that make you super happy and comfortable when you listen to them. They take you to a place that just gives you familiarity and content- both things that I really enjoy. So here we go, get your ears ready and take a little dip into who I am and what I love.

My top five favorite songs in order as of this moment are:

5. Luck by American Authors (my belt it out because I want to sing song)

4. Reflections by MisterWives (my dance around the room singing into a brush song)

3. Unsteady by X Ambassadors (my mellow/sad mood song)

2. Luna by Bombay Bicycle Club (my long-time favorite that makes me feel adventurous)

1. Geronimo by Sheppard

I have literally been listening to Geronimo for the past few days non-stop. Not only do I love the lyrics but I love the feel of the song and the female vocals that sneak in. Chills. It has been my obsession and I am so very unashamed.

What do you think?

Here is your challenge. If you can, pick five songs that you really love right now. Write them down (or not) and think of why each one speaks to you. Is it the feeling you get? The lyrics? Is it catchy? Whatever it is, try to understand why you love the genre you do and how that relates to your experiences and reasons.

Do you have it?

Share it with me. I’d love to hear what songs makes your heart beat.

Have a good weekend and watch out for my Monday post!
