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.....!

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

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 Na na na na na na na na na na Na na na na na na na na na na All Songs Lyrics written and music arranged by Mark Gardner

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 Bm A Bm E x 4 A E D A
