The cool kids like me got the ‘accidental’ email from James Blunt leaking new single ‘Bonfire Heart’

James Blunt

British singer/songrwiter James Blunt

I was perplexed when I got a personalized email from James Blunt, most widely known for his 2004 hit “You’re Beautiful,” with a link to his new single “Bonfire Heart.” Cheesin’ as much as I do when I get a “personalized” email from President Obama, I clicked the link to listen to Blunt’s single “Bonfire Heart,” and I actually liked it. There were mixed reports as to whether or not this mass mailing was clever marketing maneuver or an honest mistake leaking the song to millions. Nonetheless, it got people talking and people like me listening to Blunt’s music again…and blogging about him for the first time ever, so “up top” to whoever sent the email out. 😉

In the mass email, Blunt describes the “Bonfire Heart”: “The song is about love, life, fear and hope… and more than anything, you… and me…”

LYRICS to “Bonfire Heart” as shared in my extra special personal email from James Blunt

Your mouth is a revolver firing bullets in the sky.
Your love is like a soldier, loyal till 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, but they don’t want to get burnt.
And today is our turn.

Days like these lead to nights like this leads to love like ours,
You light the spark in my bonfire heart.
People like us, we don’t need that much.
Just someone 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 leads to love like ours,
You light a spark in my bonfire heart.
People like us, we don’t need that much.
Just someone that starts, starts a spark in our bonfire hearts.

Do you think “Bonfire Heart” is a hit? Top 40 hit? Top 20? Neither?
