Transcription by martin l. lobemeier (martin@


This song was written by Soraya in 1993 and published on her first album on nights like this (1996), produced by Rod Argent and Peter Van Hooke.
I put the mandolin's melody to guitar-tabulature. 
The bars above the notation stand for approximate major beats.
By the way... can't figure it out what the guitar really plays during the chorus - somebody ask Mitch Dalton (the player on the cd!!) Play it anyway like this:


SUDDENLY  (Soraya)

verse: (repeat almost endlessly)

F#m        E        A 
a thousand eyes looking at me
F#m              E         A 
but yours is the look that goes right through me and i
F#m    E    A 
cannot hide from your stare
         F#m     E    A 
should i let you in - do i dare
F#m        E          A
some other hands have tried before
    F#m          E          A
but yours is the touch that makes me want more
F#m    E        A 
cannot hide the urgency
   F#m      E     A
to have you lying here with me because


Chorus
A     E     D(add9)
suddenly in my life
        A                E      D(add9)
there's something that's got me mystified and i
A      E            D(add9)           A        E        D(add9)
cannot fight it but i can try to keep the wonder of it alive


a thousand words have tried to say
but yours are the ones that'll never fade away 
and i cannot hide from their sound
i am mesmerized spinning round and round and
some other hearts have tried to steal mine
yours is the one that i now hold dear
i'll do what it takes to keep you here
i'm a selfish fool but i have no fear

Chorus

a thousand times i've tried to stay alone by pushing you away
time after time and tear after tear 
i find myself back her with you
a thousand visions have come to me 
all promising serenity
as i struggle to find the source of this peace
i always end up with your kiss

2x Chorus

Solo ad lib.
