Blunt was an officer in the Life Guards, a cavalry regiment of the British Army, and served under NATO in Kosovo during the conflict there in 1999. While posted to Kosovo, Blunt was introduced to the work of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF or “Doctors Without Borders”).

Blunt explained the story behind the climax of the music clip. “We shot the video throughout Wyoming and Idaho over two days using real characters,” he said, “and the final scene took place in the car park of a bar, where everyone we’d met on the journey would meet up and we planned to film a wrap party. What we didn’t know was that in the bar, a wedding was taking place, and when they saw us arrive, the entire wedding piled out and joined us.” “I played them all ‘You’re Beautiful’ in the car park on my guitar with the bride and groom pushed to the front by the 80-strong crowd,” Blunt continued. “Then we lit fires and sparklers, put on ‘Bonfire Heart,’ and the bride and groom had their first dance to it, which we filmed, and which is now the climax of the video. In fact, it stopped being my promo video, and became their wedding video.” Songfacts®.

James Blunt – Bonfire Heart Lyrics:
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 wanna 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 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, but they don’t wanna 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 someone that starts,
Starts the spark in our bonfire hearts
(Our bonfire hearts
Our bonfire hearts
Oh, our bonfire hearts
You light the spark)

People like us, we don’t need that much
Just someone 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 someone 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 someone that starts,
Starts the spark in our bonfire hearts.
