HOPELESSLY WE STAND HERE
THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO

Track Name: Sweet Sensation
SWEET SENSATION (Music and Lyrics by Alan Kelly)

V1/
Something strange taking over me
I feel love - and I feel free
Its in my heart and its in my soul
should I play - or should I hold?

CH/
I got a sweet sensation - under my skin
ohh oh ooh oh oh
I got a sweet sensation - when she lets me in
ohh oh ooh oh oh

V2/
She was a kind I'd never seen
She brought out the devil in me
I was hooked I was lost on all she had
She was a drug and she was bad

CHORUS -

V3/
Now she knows I'm needing more
She's got me knocking on heavens door
Let me in let me in - I need to score
You're the high I'm looking for

CHORUS -

M8/
I was a very lonely boy
Until you came along
Now you have made me stand up tall
And made me feel strong

SOLO - BREAKDOWN

Something strange taking over me

CHORUS -

Sweet Sensation x 3 to end
Track Name: Wasn't Always Like This
IT WASN'T ALWAYS LIKE THIS (Music and lyrics by Alan Kelly)

V1/
I CAN'T BELIEVE
I'D GO AND DO IT AGAIN
THAT SHE WOULD LEAVE
AND THIS 'D BE THE END

CH/
AND IF I - COULD LET YOU KNOW
WOULD YOU LET ME SHOW - WITH ONE LAST KISS
AND IF I - COULD LET YOU KNOW
IT WASN'T ALWAYS LIKE THIS

V2/
AND I DIDN'T SEE
WHAT WAS COMING MY WAY
i JUST CAN'T BELIEVE
I'D EVER THROW IT AWAY

CH/ (REPEAT ENED PART OF CHORUS)
M8/
I'D TAKE YOU BACK TO A TIME
WHEN WE WERE LOVERS
AND YOU WERE MINE
I WOULD GIVE EVERYTHING
JUST TO MAKE YOU SEE
WON'T YOU PLEASE BELIEVE
IF I COULD BE YOUR MAN
I WOULD DO ALL I CAN

SOLO / CH
