Transcription by martin l. lobemeier (

This song was written by Soraya in 1993 and published on her first album on nights like this (1996), 
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 
(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.
