Bonfire Heart by James Blunt

Intro: 4/4 |   C   |   C   |

  C                                                      Em
1. Your mouth is a re-vol-ver___ Fir-ing bul-lets in the sky___ Mmm...
  C                                                Em
   Your love is like a sol-dier___ Lo-yal 'til you die
  F                                                         Am
   And I’ve been look-ing at the stars___ For a long, long time
                                           C
   I’ve been put-ting out fires___ All my life                                 
                                                             G                     
   If ev'-ry-bo-dy wants a flame___ They don’t want to get burnt

   And to-day is our turn
       
       C                         Am
Chorus: Days like these lead to___ Nights like this lead to
       F                                 Am                    G
        Love like ours___ You light the spark in my bon-fire heart
       C                          Am
        Peo-ple like us we don’t___ Need that much, just some-
       F                                Am                    G
        One that starts___ Starts the spark in our bon-fire hearts

  C                                                      Em
2. This world is get-ting col-der___ Stran-gers pas-sing by___ Mmm...
  C                                                          Em
   No one of-fers you a shoul-der___ No one looks you in the eye...
  F                                                   Am
   But I’ve been look-ing at you___ For a long, long time
                                                         C
   Just try-ing to break through___ Try-ing to make you mine 
                                                          G   
   Ev'-ry-bo-dy wants a flame___ They don’t want to get burnt

   Well to-day is our turn

       C                         Am
Chorus: Days like these lead to___ Nights like this lead to
       F                                 Am                    G
        Love like ours___ You light the spark in my bon-fire heart
       C                          Am
        Peo-ple like us we don’t___ Need that much, just some-
       F                                Am                    G
        One that starts___ Starts the spark in our bon-fire hearts

                             F    
Bridge: Mmm___ Our bonfire hearts
                             Am 
        Mmm___ Our bonfire hearts
                             C
        Ooh___ Our bonfire hearts
                               G
        Mmm___ You light the spark

       C                         Am
Chorus: People like us we don’t___ Need that much, just some-
       F                                Am                    G
        One that starts___ Starts the spark in our bon-fire hearts

                                Am
Chorus: Days like these lead to___ Nights like this lead to
       F                                 Am                    G
        Love like ours___ You light the spark in my bon-fire heart
       C                          Am
        Peo-ple like us we don’t___ Need that much, just some-
                                       Am                    G
        One that starts___ Starts the spark in our bon-fire hearts
                           C
        (...our bon-fire hearts)

       C                          Am
Chorus: Peo-ple like us we don’t___ Need that much, just some-
       F                                Am                    G
