Verse 1
Got a smile so loud that the world can hear it
Got a heart so proud that I can’t believe it
Cause life’s so good to me, good to me, good to me
Yeah life’s so good, it’s so good
Got so much love that the world can’t hold it
And I got big plans and they’re all unfolding
Cause life’s so good to me, good to me, good to me
Yeah life’s so good, it’s so good 
Bridge
So if you’re feeling good tonight
Wanna see your hearts up in the sky
If you’re feeling good tonight

No looking down cause we’re not going down
We’re only going up so put your hearts up

Counting Scars by Gabrielle Gardiner – 14th & 15th July 2014
 
Verse 1 
My heart seems to break at first
The first time that I cried, first to apologise
Can’t ever get it right
I guess I messed it up again
Bridge
Flashback to the things that I regret
Flashback to the things I can’t forget
Chorus
Maybe it’s just me am I the one to blame
Maybe it’s just me I’ve messed it up again
And I’m left here counting scars
Yeah I’m left here counting scars
Verse 2
My heart seems to stop for a second
Second guessing my life for the second time
Can’t ever get it right
I guess I messed it up again
My heart skipped a beat the third night
The third fight, the third time that I’ve lied
Can’t ever get it right
I guess I messed it up again
Bridge
Chorus
Verse 3
Taking four steps back from where I was before
Cause my heart can’t take this no more
It’s beating out my chest like four to the floor
As I fall to the floor I’ve messed it up for sure
And I, I find it hard to breathe
But I’m still on my feet
Chorus
Yeah I’m left here counting scars

Best Night by Gabrielle Gardiner – 18th January 2015
 
Verse 1
Chilling in the dark, looking at the stars
Being who we are, cause I won’t judge ya
Playing your guitar strumming along to the beat of my heart
Letting down my guard, I’m falling for ya
Bridge
This could be the very start of
Something I’ve been wanting for so long
This could be the very start of
You and me
Chorus
This could be the best night
You and me dancing in the starlight
I know, I know you like to take it slow but
This could be the best night
Oh oh uh oh uh uh oh oh oh uh oh uh uh oh
Verse 2
Secrets no one knows, scars we’ve never shown
Places we should go now we’re together
When you hold me close never let me go
You won’t be alone cause I’m here for ya
Bridge
Chorus
Verse 3
This could be (This could be)
You and me (You and me)
This could be (This could be)
You and me
Chorus (x2)
The best night 

Dream Big by Gabrielle Gardiner – 20th February 2014
 
Verse 1
I think nerves come to me whenever I get stressed
About fame, music, or my next school test
I guess, it’s just ‘cause I wanna be the best
So anything less, just fails the rate of my success
One fail doesn’t mean I’ve gotten worse
But I don’t wanna be second, I just wanna be first
And as I fall I feel the rise in my tummy
I’m feeling kinda funny, wipe the tears off my t-shirt
Yeah, and flip the fears into reverse
And be the bravest kid they ever heard
At your lowest can’t get any worse
At your highest you’re at the top, enjoy the journey and just make it work
So I’mma make it work
Just making the best out of every situation so that this can work
Chorus
Dream big keep aiming for the sky
We’ll keep working ‘til we win the fight
This is our chance and we’re gonna take it
Gonna take it, yeah
Dream big keep aiming for the sky
I’ll keep working ‘til I win the fight
This is my chance gonna take it with both hands
And make it, oh yeah
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Verse 2
‘Cause even when you’re feeling down and blue
Always know there’s someone else worse off than you
When you feel like you don’t have the strength to stand
Just know the whole world is at your hands
At your fingertips, are you hearing this?
A couple tips that could help you out of it
A couple tips on repeat when you’ve had enough
When you get knocked down get straight back up
‘Cause even if I fail, I’ll go down fighting, we
Will never leave without our dignity
‘Cause you never really know what you could achieve
Until you try, greatness could be your destiny
The haters are testing me
Wait ‘til you’ve seen the rest of me
Yeah, ‘cause you ain’t seen the last of me
‘Til you’ve seen the best of me
Chorus
Verse 3
Yeah this is our time to shine, our time to find
The talent you were made to do cause I’ve found mine
One step back and three steps forwards
Listen to these words these are the key words
Keep dreaming keep believing start achieving
‘Cause perseverance is the key thing, yeah
Chorus

Friend Zone by Gabrielle Gardiner 22-24th December 2014
 
Verse 1
Boy walks by, looking so fly
Thinking of him like all of the time
Nothing in common but I don’t mind
He could never do wrong with those eyes
Bridge
Don’t think I’ve ever liked a guy much more
Apart from last week and the week before
But oh well, who cares that was back then
I’ll just pretend I never liked them
But who’s that girl over there?
He’s trying so hard not to stare
He introduces me to her
His girlfriend, his girlfriend, his girlfriend
Chorus
(Now I’m) stuck in the friend zone again
And the smile on my face is pretend
Cause I’m stuck in the friend zone again
I just wish that you’d like me like you like her (x2)
(Sing it) La, la… wish that you’d like me like you like her
Verse 2
Look at this guy, eyes so green
It’s getting pretty serious liked this guy for a week
Plays the guitar he can serenade me
Think that this could work cos we share the same dreams, I
Bridge
Chorus
Verse 3
Stuck in the friend zone all alone wondering why I do this
I must admit, fell too quick, found you too hard to resist
My head fell before my heart could break the fall
Now I’m home by myself waiting for your call
Stuck in the friend zone all alone wondering why I do this
I must admit, fell too quick, found you too hard to resist
I’m not over the moon, be over you soon
By tomorrow be thinking bout somebody new
Chorus
Stuck in the friend zone

Lighters (The One) by Gabrielle Gardiner - 31st October & 1st November 2012
 
Chorus:  
Put your lighters in the air
If you’ve ever felt scared
‘Cos you’ve lost the one, who was the one
Put your lighters in the sky
If you’re sleeping alone tonight
‘Cos you’ve lost the one
Verse1:
You were my best friend and boyfriend all at the same time
It’s funny to think I’ve known you my whole life
I can’t even remember a time we weren’t together
Thinking back to the time we promised it would last forever
We’d only just learnt what love was
But I’d try to impress you with my lip gloss
Bridge:
Now I’m sitting here wondering where does the love go
Only thing I have is a voice and a lighter so
Chorus
Who was the one
The one, the one, the one, the one
Verse2:
You were so young you couldn’t even say it
Our dates were at the park on the swings or just playing
Well I remember everything that you wrote
Will you go out with me? On a post it note
I wrote yes and I gave it back
You said I could keep it and I’ve still got that
Bridge
Chorus
Who was the one
The one, the one, the one, the one
Verse3: 
Back then it was so different
I didn’t even have to ask and you’d listen
We’d been a couple since forever
It’s so weird that we ain’t together
And every time I see you I wanna cry
And every time you look at me I die inside
Bridge (changed):
Now I’m sitting here wondering where does the love go
Everyone grab your lighters if they left you alone so
Chorus
Who was the one
The one, the one, the one, the one, the one

Lie There by Gabrielle Gardiner - 18th April 2013
 
Intro: 
I’ll just, take my heart and let go of your hand and
Bury it right in the sand and just lie there
Just lie there, just lie there
Verse 1: 
Been here a couple times before, for sure
But someone always ends up walking out the door
It feels like love will never work out
It feels like I always end up getting let down, now
I always end up back where I started at the start
And I wish we hadn’t parted cos you’ve broken my heart
Again, and we’re friends, in the end, like the trend
But I meet someone else and it starts over again
Chorus:
I’ll just, take my heart and let go of your hand and
Bury it right in the sand and just lie there
Just lie there, just lie there
I’ll just get a box and lock away my tears and
Watch the memories disappear and just lie there
Just lie there, just lie there
Verse 2: 
After that I say I’ll never fall in love again
We meet and promise that we’ll just be friends
We decide to get together and I think you’re the one
Then you shoot through my heart like a laser gun
Now I think I’ve fallen for that, for the last time
So I’ll forget about the boys and just stick to the rhymes
Again, and we’re friends, in the end, like the trend
But I meet someone else and it starts over again
Chorus
Verse 3: 
Kick the fears right out of my head and
Stop crying into my bed and just lie there
Just lie there, just lie there
Here we go again
Chorus (changed):
I’ll just, take my heart and let go of your hand and
Bury it right in the sand and just lie there
I’ll just get a box and lock away my tears and
Watch the memories disappear and just lie there
Just lie there, just lie there
I’ll just, take my heart and let go of your hand and
Bury it right in the sand and just lie there
Just lie there, just lie there
Verse 1 (to fade)

Change the Game by Gabrielle Gardiner - 29th March 2013
 
Verse 1
Life is full of choices
And sometimes it can be hard
Life is such a journey
It’s taken me so far
No matter what you’re doing
No matter where you are
You’ve gotta remember
To always follow your heart
You’ve gotta work hard
To make something of yourself
You’ve gotta work hard,
Not for money or for wealth
You’ve got to try your best
To get to your fate
Cos nothing in life is free
At the end of the day
Chorus
You don’t even know what you’re capable of
If you put the effort in
You know that you’re good enough
Without being given everything
Yeah, living life just sitting in the back seat
Now it’s time for you to use your own feet
Oh, oh, oh
The whole world is waiting for you
You’ve got potential no matter what you do
Oh, oh, oh
We’re gonna change the game
Verse 2
You’ve got your brothers and your sisters
Your mothers, fathers and friends
But you control your own life
When it comes to the end
You can’t be the hero
If you never attend
So stand up for yourself
Cos you’ve gotta defend
Do it for your family
Fight through the pain
Do it for yourself
Stay the same, never change
Do it for your fans
Through the fame, for your name
Do it like no other
Start again, change the game
Chorus
Verse 3
We’re gonna reach that star, just stand up
Stand up tall and put your hands up
We’re crazy too much swag when we make stuff
People saying all they need is love
I mean I love love and loving is totally great
But we be getting more with the beats we create
Cos you need money, food and a happy home
But be nice cos it’s never fun to live alone
Just think, forty years down the line
Just looking back, over your life
In a big house cos you made good decisions
Or kicking yourself wishing that you listened
Well look the future’s in your hands
Whether you’re not sure or you’ve got big plans
Well that’s the end that’s all I gotta say
But don’t make that mistake, don’t walk away
Chorus
