Bonfire Heart  

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.

Miss America 

Did someone give you something to help you ease the pain?
Like the liquor in the bottle, we watched you slip away.
And I feel as if I know you through the bars of a song.
Always surrounded but alone.

But no goodbyes – you’ll always be Miss America.
We watched you fly, but nothing’s free Miss America.
And as you fall apart, we just call it art.
Was it too hard to breathe?

Was the picture in the paper not the face you recognise?
Did the make-up never make up for the pain behind your eyes?
Cos I feel as if I know you when you’re on my silver screen
But I don’t know the dark places that you’ve been.

But no goodbyes – you’ll always be Miss America.
We watched you fly, but nothing’s free Miss America.
And as you fall apart, we just call it art.
Was it too hard to breathe?

Does another voice sing in Heaven’s choir tonight,
To fill the silence left behind?
And I don’t know what goes on in your mind
But I’m sure it’s enough to make me cry.
Someday we’ll find,
You lived forever.

But no goodbyes – you’ll always be Miss America.
We watched you fly, but nothing’s free Miss America.
And as you fall apart, we just call it art.
Was it too hard to breathe?

Satellites 

She’s another victim of life
We’ve come to know
Technology, celebrity
All the things you cannot hold
She’s from a long lost tribe
Looking for the light
Or a friend to hold her hand
She’s doing the best she can

Seems that everyone we know is
Out there waiting by a phone
Wondering why they feel alone
In this life

Are we all just satellites?
Where’s the love? Show me tonight
Here’s the moment we unite
Ooh-ooh-oh ooh-ooh-oh-oh

For all we know life’s just a dream
Who the hell knows what it means?
Stop the world and song with me
Ooh-ooh-oh ooh-ooh-oh-oh

All her memories have been
Experienced through
High speed on a video screen
That’s all she ever knew
Did you know none of it’s real
If you can’t feel
The beating of someone’s heart

Don’t leave yourself in the dark
Seems that every one we know is
Out there waiting by a phone
Wondering why they feel alone
In this life

Are we all just satellites?
Where’s the love? Show me tonight
Here’s the moment we unite
Ooh-ooh-oh ooh-ooh-oh-oh

For all we know life’s just a dream
What the hell knows what it means?
Stop the world and sing with me
Ooh-ooh-oh ooh-ooh-oh-oh

Are we satellites?
Are we satellites?

Are we all just satellites?
Where’s the love? Show me tonight
Here’s the moment we unite
Ooh-ooh-oh ooh-ooh-oh-oh

For all we know life’s just a dream
What the hell knows what it means?
Stop the world and sing with me
Ooh-ooh-oh ooh-ooh-oh-oh

Are we all just satellites?
Where’s the love? Show me tonight
Here’s the moment we unite
Ooh-ooh-oh ooh-ooh-oh-oh

For all we know life’s just a dream
What the hell knows what it means?
Stop the world and sing with me
Ooh-ooh-oh ooh-ooh-oh-oh

Face The Sun 

Yes, this love’s not good enough
It’s time to let it go
Our weary hearts just fall apart,
I feel it in my bones

And God knows
That it’s hard to find the one
But in time,
All the flowers turn to face the sun

So silently just walk with me,
Like any other day
No sad goodbyes, no tears, no lies,
Just go our separate ways

And God knows
That it’s hard to find the one
But in time, all the flowers
Yes in time,
All the flowers turn to face the sun

And God knows
That it’s hard to find the one
But in time,
All the flowers turn to face the sun

 

Face the sun:  Chanson co-écrite par James Blunt et Robson Stephen

Sun on Sunday 

A silent tear,
An empty smile
So insincerely but so gently in deny
And me the thief
So selfishly
All the moments meant for you
I made them mine

How was I so blind to miss you crumbling inside
Is it too late now to fix you
Let me make it right
‘Cause there’ll be no Sun on Sunday
No reason for words to rhyme
‘Cause if you’re bleeding so am I

A wishful look… hesitate
You’re hoping I will notice that you’re not ok
And me the fool
You turn away
It’s only then I feel the weight of my mistakes

How was I so blind to miss you crumbling inside
Is it too late now to fix you
Let me make it right
‘Cause there’ll be no Sun on Sunday
No reason for words to rhyme
‘Cause if you’re bleeding so am I

And If I cut you, if I bruise you,
Then the scars are always mine
‘Cause I love you,
So to loose you,
Would be worse than if I die

How was I so blind to miss you crumbling inside
Is it too late now to fix you
Let me make it right
‘Cause there’ll be no Sun on Sunday
No reason for words to rhyme
‘Cause if you’re bleeding so am I

Postcards  

Sundays sitting on your back porch
And I came on with a couple of chords
And I played for you.
You let me keep you entertained
With stories I exagerate
That you know aren’t true
And as you sit there making daisy chains
And I throw in a hand grenade
And tell you how it is I really feel for you.

I’m sending postcards from my heart.
Your love for a postmark and then,
You know that you make me feel like
We’ve been caught like kids in the schoolyard again.
And I can’t keep it to myself
Can’t spell it any better
L.O.V.E forever
I hope you know that
I’m sending a postcard
I don’t care who sees what I’ve said
Or if the whole world knows what’s in my head.

We chased the sun til it got away
On a bicycle that your daddy made
But not made for two
Then we sat out on your rocking chair
You with a flower in your hair
That I found for you
But then Monday always comes around
And it’s sad ’cause I can’t see you now
Want you to know you’re always in my head

I’m sending postcards from my heart.
Your love for a postmark and then,
You know that you make me feel like
We’ve been caught like kids in the school yard again.
And I can’t keep it to myself
Can’t spell it any better
L.O.V.E forever
I hope you know that
I’m sending a postcard
I don’t care who sees what I’ve said
Or if the whole world knows what’s in my head.

You know sometimes its hard to see
You say the words that torture me
But inside I know exactly how I feel
The things that I can’t say out loud
I’ll find a place to write it down
I hope that they will find you in the end.

I’m sending postcards from my heart.
Your love for a postmark and then,
You know that you make me feel like
We’ve been caught like kids in the school yard again.
And I can’t keep it to myself
Can’t spell it any better
L.O.V.E forever
I hope you know that
I’m sending a postcard
I don’t care who sees what I’ve said
Or if the whole world knows what’s in my head.

Know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know oh oh know oh oh know oh oh
All the things I want you to know.

The only one
Did all the words I never said,
Hurt as bad as those I did?
You know I never even cared,
Not before you

If I could go and turn back time
If I could only press rewind,
I would bleed this heart of mine,
Just to show you

And I’ll be the first to say I’m sorry,
The first to say I’m stupid
Why do I always take you there?
Is it hopeless?
Or maybe you still want to,
Meet me at the altar?
And I will lay it all to bed

And I told you,
All my secrets, all my fears
I’ve let go
And it’s flawless,
You are the only one
You are the only one, Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?

Am I fading from your mind?
Has the distance blurred the lines?
They say all things heal with time
But it’s untrue
I will linger on every word
I know it’s more than I deserve
Chances are, I’ll make it worse
But I need to, tell you

Tell you that I’m sorry
Tell you, that I’m stupid
Why do I always take it there?
Is it hopeless?
Or maybe you still want to, meet me at the altar?
And I will lay it all to bed

And I told you,
All my secrets, all my fears
I’ve let go
And it’s flawless,
You are the only one
You are the only one, Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
That the heart is cold, not having you to hold
Don’t you know?
This old heart of mine can better see now you’re gone

And I told you,
All my secrets, all my fears
I’ve let go
And it’s flawless,
You are the only one
You are the only one,
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?

 

The only one : Chanson écrite par James Blunt

BONES 
I have never been a beautiful boy,
Never liked the sound of my own voice-
I wasn’t cool when I was in my teens.
I never slept but I did have dreams.
And as I step out in this big old world
Seven billion just trying to cope.
And every one of us some day will die but,
today I never felt more alive

Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it, feel it, feel it.
Running through your bones?
Running through your bones.
Yeah you set my heart on fire.
And it’s all hard-wired to my bones.

I can count all the things I fear.
I close my eyes but they don’t disappear.
If there’s a God then there’s a guarantee.
But if there’s not it’s just you and me.

Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it, feel it, feel it.
Running through your bones?
Running through your bones.
Yeah you set my heart on fire.
And it’s all hard-wired to my bones.

So kiss me before the sun falls down.
Run before your legs give way.
Swallow it all till you drown.

Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it, feel it, feel it.
Running through your bones?
Running through your bones.
Yeah you set my heart on fire.
And it’s all hard-wired to my bones.
Running through your bones.
Yeah you set my heart on fire.
And it’s all hard-wired to my bones.
Running through my bones.
Running through my bones .

ALWAYS HATE ME 

Oh God it hurt
The moment that I saw you
With someone else
The one that you belong to

I never thought
I’d drown in my shallow
Heart

I’d like to say
The things I never used to
But come today they wont ever be useful
I never learnt to use my shallow
Heart

I, I, I
I never meant to hurt you
It’s just something I do
I guess it’s not a good excuse

And she will always hate me
No matter what I say
And there is no mistaking
The love is gone

She will always hate me
She said, « You lost me baby. »
No matter what I say
The love is gone

Looking back I guess I’m holding onto
The good we had
But I know it’s wrong to
Because in the end
She’s never gonna hold my heart

And now she knows
She doesn’t want to know me
I’m not suppose to be the one that’s lonely
I never thought that she could have a cold, cold
Heart

I, I, I
I never meant to hurt you
It’s just something I do
I guess it’s not a good excuse

And she will always hate me
No matter what I say
And there is no mistaking
The love is gone

She will always hate me
She said, « You lost me baby. »
No matter what I say
The love is gone

I, I, I
I never meant to hurt you
It’s just something I do
I guess it’s not a good excuse

And she will always hate me
No matter what I say
And there is no mistaking
The love is gone

She will always hate me
She said, « You lost me baby. »
No matter what I say
The love is gone

 

Always hate me : Chanson co-écrite par James Blunt et Malik Ammar

Heart To Heart

There are times when I don’t know where I stand (oh, sometimes)
You make me feel like I’m a boy and not a man (oh, sometimes)
There are times when you don’t give me a smile (oh, sometimes)
I lie awake at night and worry for a while (oh, oh)

It’s OK ’cause I know
You shine even on a rainy day and
I can find your halo
Guides me to wherever you fall
If you need a hand to hold
I’ll come running, because
You and I won’t part till we die
You should know
We see eye to eye, heart to heart.

There are times when I cry ’cause you shed no tears (oh, sometimes)
Your mind’s so far away but your body’s right here (oh, sometimes)
There are times when I just walked out your door (oh, sometimes)
And thought I’d never get to see you anymore (oh, oh)

It’s OK ’cause I know
You shine even on a rainy day
And I can find your halo
Guides me to wherever you fall
If you need a hand to hold
I’ll come running, because
You and I won’t part till we die
You should know
We see eye to eye, heart to heart.

Woah… woah…
Oh sometimes
Woah… woah…

Wherever you fall
If you need a hand to hold
I’ll come running, because
You and I won’t part till we die
You should know
We see eye to eye, heart to heart.

I can find your halo
Guides me to wherever you fall

Blue On Blue 

How come, you don’t wanna see me ?
How come, you’ve gone and left me alone ?
how come, you took a slow boat to China ?
What can I do if I can’t be there with you ?
Baby, blue on blue

I want you more
Than I ever wanted
Than I ever needed
Anyone I ever knew
I love you more than ever
Thought that I would never feel the way that I do

How long you gonna leave me here standing ?
How long do you gonna make up your mind ?
How long is your balloon ride to nowhere ?
What can I do if I can’t be there with you ?
Baby blue on blue

i want you more
Than I ever wanted
Than I ever needed
Anyone I ever knew
I love you more than ever
Thought that I would never feel the way that I do

I’m coming under fire
I m coming under fire
I’m coming under fire
I’m coming under fire
Baby
I’m coming under fire
i m coming under fire
I m coming under fire
I m coming under fire

Baby blue on blue

HEROES
 Bonfire Heart EP
You can see it on her face
Her red eyes say she’s not safe
How should she know what it means
She is only just a teen
Under her duvet’s where she hides
To block the screaming late at night
She can’t remember life before
Mama and Daddy went to war

All little girls are full of confusion
Cry all you want coz you’re only human
Was all the love just an illusion?
Daddy’s not coming home
Mama’s asleep and she smells of whiskey
Promise that won’t be you when you’re 50
Cry before the guilty clap your wings
Coz all you’re heroes
Are skin and bones

Packed the small bag of things she loves
Deep inside she blames herself
She has nowhere else to go
But that sounds better than what she knows
And as she steps into the dark
Dirty hair and heavy heart
Cold, cold air inside her lungs
Catch a snowflake on her tongue

All little girls are full of confusion
Cry all you want coz you’re only human
Was all the love just an illusion?
Daddy’s not coming home
Mama’s asleep and she smells of whiskey
Promise that won’t be you when you’re 50
Cry before the guilty clap your wings
Coz all you’re heroes
Are skin and bones

And as I heard you shut the door
Went through the window and I saw
The footsteps of my big sister in the snow
Since then not a single day has passed
Where I don’t say your name and ask
Where, where did you go?

All little girls are full of confusion
Cry all you want coz you’re only human
Was all the love just an illusion?
Daddy’s not coming home
Mama’s asleep and she smells of whiskey
Promise that won’t be you when you’re 50
Cry before the guilty clap your wings
Coz all you’re heroes
Are skin and bones

 

Kiss This Love Goodbye
Deluxe Edition
My one, true love,
You can guess what I’ve been thinking of?
God knows, we’ve tried
To stay together while our hearts divided
Put my boxes in the post
I leave my keys behind
It might not be the end of now
Oh it’s time, to kiss this love goodbye
To kiss this love goodbye

You get, our friends
I will find a little place to rent
Out here now, doing fine
And I’ll pretend you never crossed my mind
So take my photo off the wall
And renovate your life
One day we might meet but now
Oh it’s time
To kiss this love goodbye
To kiss this love goodbye

I give you back your life
Darling please don’t cry
Just put my boxes in the post
I leave my keys behind
It might not be the end
But now its time
To kiss this love goodbye
To kiss this love goodbye
My one, true love,
You can guess what I’ve been thinking of?

 

Hollywood
Deluxe Edition
She’s gone Hollywood on me
She thinks everyone is watching,
It’s all about drugs and money and a back-door when she leaves
Whooo do you think you are? You are just a little fish in a sea of sharks
From the past you are hiding and you don’t wanna be reminded

Nooo you don’t even know what you want, know what you got, noooo
I don’t even think that I want what’s left of your heart
I used to think that I can make you happy then you go and throw it right back at me
Noooo you don’t even know what you want, know what you got

She’s got her jeans from the TV
But they don’t include me
It’s like all we have been through means nothing
And there’s nothing left to see
Whooo do you think you are? Feels like I don’t know you anymore.
We used to be friends and lovers
And I miss that most of all

Nooo you don’t even know what you want, know what you got, noooo
I don’t even think that I want what’s left of your heart
I used to think that I can make you happy then you go and throw it right back at me
Noooo you don’t even know what you want, know what you got

All you need is star on an arm and a picture to show your friends
Sweet nothings to look bitter and

Nooo you don’t even know what you want, know what you got, noooo
I don’t even think that I want what’s left of your heart
I used to think that I can make you happy then you go and throw it right back at me
Noooo you don’t even know what you want, know what you got

Noooo you don’t even know what you want, know what you got
Noooo I don’t even think that I want what’s left of your heart
I used to think that I can make you happy
Then you go and throw it right back at me
Noooo you don’t even know what you want, know what you got
