Track Name: Mark Gardner - Take Me Home
Take Me Home
(As written by Mark Gardner)

She works in the grocery store
She never has time to explore.
I looked at her with great intent
Watching her every defense.
Take a little step and watch her sway.
I turned around she slowly unlocks the door

She says...
Take me home to the mountain
Take me home to be free
Take me home where the heart is
Take me home to the sea.
Take me home.....

She drinks a Latte each morning,
Up along Main Street Cafe.
I telephone her with many questions,
She whispered to em so sweet and tenderly.
Take a little breath and she is almost gone
I’m at great lengths to see it through

She says...
Take me home to the mountain
Take me home to be free
Take me home where the heart is
Take me home to the sea.
Take me home.....

Every hour we watch
the storm...
She re-appears with a glow.........
Take me Home......
Sweet Home..........!
Guitar solo
Take me home to the mountain
Take me home to be free
Take me home where the heart is
Take me home to the sea.
Take me home.....
Sweet Home.....!
Track Name: Mark Gardner (Aus) - Heart's On Fire
Hearts On Fire
(As written by Mark Gardner)


Some people dream a dream,
Wake next morning to rainbow skies.
Some people live each moment,
Escape from the memory of
An enchanting life...

But your faiths Alive,
Your Hearts on Fire..
In your one desire,
Your Hearts on fire..

Some People walk hand in hand,
Deliver red roses and kiss in the moonlight.
Some People Live each moment,
Drinking white wines singing lullabies.

But your faiths Alive
Your Hearts on Fire..
In your one desire
Your Hearts on fire..

You can see the reasons why for your give and take.
You can learn from our history that there’s no turning back..

But your faith’s Alive,
Your Hearts on Fire..
In your one desire,
Your Hearts on fire..

Harmonica solo
But your faith’s alive,
Your Hearts on fire..
In your one desire
Your Hearts on Fire....
In your one desire,
Your Hearts on fire..

The Great Divide
(As written by Mark Gardner)

G EM G EM
Down by the river ,the animals unite.
You can see all the people, in broad daylight.
Upon the wilderness there is time.
But money speaks for us all,
As time flies by.........

GG D/GG D/GG ASUS4/GG ASUS4/ASUS4/GGD
Across The Border,
Through The Desert plains.
I see the farmers dancing in the rain.
Some speak from the Alice,
As I sing from, as I sing from
The Great Divide........

G EM G EM G EM G EM
In this great country of ours
The truth goes round and round
From Melbourne to Sydney
I have seen plenty of dust
One by OneOur trees Grow So tall
One By One our heritage is all gone...

Repeat Chorus

Wait a second you’ll hear the sacred call
It’s wild it’s free it’s as though it’s right next to me.
One by One our civilisation grows.
One by one our heritage is all sold....

Repeat Chorus
Solos
Oooh Oo- Ooh
Oooh Oo-0oh
Track Name: The House of Love
THE HOUSE OF LOVE
(As written by Mark Gardner)

We’re sitting in a room looking at a view,
Where we can see the whole wide world.
We’re staring past the red scarred sky,
Where we can breathe the hot summer night.
There’s a jumbo passing overhead,
While in the backyard the children sing a long...

And we’re Dancing in The House of Love
Kissing to be clever
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Listening to the Music
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Kissing to be clever
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love

We’re all looking out the back verandah
Where we can swim the deep blue water
There all staring out over the harbour
Where we can see The Southern Cross
And there’s a magpie sitting on the ledge
While in the backyard the children sing a long..

And we’re Dancing in The House of Love
Kissing to be clever
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Listening to the Music
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Kissing To Be Clever
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Listening to the music
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Kissing to Be Clever
Dancing in The House Of Love

In The House Of Love
In The House Of Love


We’re all singing, dancing to the music
When we hear a long distance song
We’re all staring out over the valley
Where we can live the urban life

And we’re Dancing in The House of Love
Kissing to be clever
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Listening to the Music
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Kissing To Be Clever
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love
Listening to the music
We’re Dancing in The House Of Love

In The House Of Love
In The House Of Love
In The House Of Love
In The House Of Love

Na na na na na na na na na na
Sing it!
Na na na na na na na na na na

Track Name: Mark Gardner VS Sgt Trouser - EBONY ST
EBONY STREET

(Written and Arranged by Mark Gardner)

A E D A

Some people come around to hear the sound
Of rolling ocean a place I call home
You can hear the thunder
As the lightning touches the sea
With a room full of memories
For all to see.........

Welcome To Ebony Street
Where the Rain Falls
On Barren Ground
Welcome to Ebony Street
Where you can Touch
Touch The Sun!

Sometimes you may wonder where we came from.
The land of confusion , a land of broken hearts
You can be grateful to see this nation
As warm as today, Cold as tomorrow
