Favorite Song and Video of Father Henry Clay Hunt III, Pastor St. Joseph Church in Del Rio, Texas

During the Homily of the October 1, 2014 Feast Day Mass of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus/The Little Flower, Father Henry Clay Hunt III, Pastor of St. Joseph Church in Del Rio, Texas shared that his current favorite song and video was "Bonfire Heart" by James Blunt.

Father Clay shared the lyrics and invited the congregation especially the Confirmation students attending Mass to view the video.

Father Clay said he liked the song but he especially liked the video, and when we viewed the video we would know why he liked it so much.





"Bonfire Heart"
 

[Verse 1:]
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

[Chorus:]
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

[Verse 2:]
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

(Our bonfire hearts)

[Chorus]
