Coops Just Coops "Forbidden Fruit" is a sexy and sultry song that makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up each time I hear it. I was so pleased to have discovered Brealyn Sheehan and "Forbidden Fruit" as I was putting my 2017 International Women's Day mix together for 107.3HFM in Perth. It is THE standout track in amongst a heap of other great tracks by Aussie female artists played on the day. Favorite track: Forbidden Fruit.

Track Name: Forbidden Fruit
Forbidden Fruit. © Brealyn Sheehan 2014

I think you’re the devil in disguise
But what I see I do quite like
Though it may lead to my demise
It seems you’ve won me over

Much to my distress I can’t resist
The spell was hidden in your kiss
Though I beseech you to desist
You won’t till I’m your lover

Oh and it’s hard to deny my feelings
When they hold such heat
Oh and it’s hard to turn down forbidden fruit
When it tastes so sweet
It tastes so sweet

I feel the symptoms building in my blood
You know I cannot get enough
This rush of fever like a flood
And I’m being swept under

There’s no time for hesitation
My desperate touch manifestation
Of my raw infatuation
Drowning in an inundation of you

Oh and it’s hard to deny my feelings
When they hold such heat
Oh and it’s hard to turn down forbidden fruit
When it tastes so sweet

One taste of you and I can’t say no
If you can spare me then let me go
Don’t draw me closer to temptation's door
One taste of you and I can’t say no
Even now you won’t let me go
This insatiable appetite for more
It draws me ever onwards through that door
And I still want more

Oh and it’s hard to deny my feelings
When they hold such heat
Oh and it’s hard to turn down forbidden fruit
When it tastes so sweet
Oh and it’s hard to deny my feelings
When they hold such heat
Oh and it’s hard to turn down forbidden fruit
When it tastes so sweet
It tastes so sweet

Weight In Gold ©Brealyn Sheehan 2014

Oh love release you troubles now
And set your struggles down
You’re in my care

With me you don't have to hide
All that torment inside
Cause all that you are I’ll share

Cause I want to set you free
And I'll give you that piece of me
That I’ve been holding back for
Someone worth their weight in gold

And I’ll wrap you in tenderness
I will not love you less
If I know your darkest secrets

Give me your broken soul
I’ll sew you one and whole
And I'll render you demons harmless

Cause I want to set you free
And I'll give you that piece of me
That I’ve been holding back for
Someone worth their weight in gold

Cause I want to set you free
And I'll give you that piece of me
That I’ve been holding back for
Someone worth their weight in gold
Track Name: Come A Little Closer
Come A Little Closer © Brealyn Sheehan 2014

Come a little closer
And whisper in my ear
Tell my all your secrets
Tell me what I want to hear

Tell me all your secrets
And I will tell you mine
Cause I want to know you better
Want to see inside your mind

Come a little closer
So that I might see
If you’re the man for me

Don’t treat me like a flower
If you touch me I won’t break
We’ve got nothing to lose dear
Except the love that we might make

We’ve got nothing to lose dear
Why not join me in this dance
Cause I want to know you better
Come on and take a chance

Don’t treat me like a flower
Come and take me by both hands
If you’ll be my man

Now I’ve got you where I want you
You’re not going anywhere
Cause you want to know me better
There’s so much that we can share

We’ll dance this dance forever
You’ve been mine since this began
You will be my man
You will be my man
Track Name: My Body Is Your Orchestra
My Body Is Your Orchestra ©Brealyn Sheehan 2014

My body is your orchestra
I love it when you play the conductor
You move from treble to the bass and I plead
Come on and play with me

In a darkened room you take your baton
Tap it on the music stand, the house lights come on
I'm poised and ready, the instruments are tuned
There is no audience, there's only me and you
I’m waiting for your cue

You use my hips as a drum
My skin tingles as your fingers thrum
I feel the rhythm deep within
I feel the goosebumps rising off my skin
Let the music begin

My body is your orchestra
I love it when you play the conductor
You move from treble to the bass and I plead
Come on and play with me

Let me stand in for your cello
My spine's the strings, your arm's the bow
Draw it 'cross me with your lightest touch
The way you play me darling feels so lush
You set my pulse a-rush

Curves like a trumpet or a double bass
Spin me on the spot with one hand upon my waist

My body is your orchestra
I love it when you play the conductor
You move from treble to the bass and I plead
Come on and play with me

Pick your chords across my arm
A ticklish guitar well that's the charm and
Play piano up and down my thigh
A complex set of notes to make me high
All I can do it sigh

Shake me like maracas and hit my tambourine
We will make such melodies the world has never seen

My body is your orchestra
I love it when you play the conductor
You move from treble to the bass and I plead
Come on and play with me
This music is a sweet delight
Dark and sinful, we can play all night
Come on and conduct me
Come on and play with me
Track Name: Want, Need, Don't
Want, Need, Don't ©Brealyn Sheehan 2015

I know that you want me I can see it in your eyes
One look at me and you are mesmerized
Yes you want, and you need, but you don't

You try to hide it and you push me away,
Hold me at a distance but I know you're afraid of what you want
Yes you want, and you need, but you don't

I let you get closer and you offer sweet words
And I let my guard down my feelings are stirred
But how can I trust you when we've been here before
At this same old junction that keeps me falling

Like a pot left simmering on the back of your stove
My desire gets richer and grows
Though the flames, thought the flames burn low
My desire gets richer and grows
And it grows, and it grows, and it grows
And I want, and I need, but I don't
Yes I want, and I need, but I don't
Yes I want, and I need, but I don't

We've got enough chemistry to fuel a fire
But it's gonna fizzle out if we don't act in time
Yes we want, and we need, but we don't

I've got the will and the means to love you
And I know that you're feeling the way that I do
Yes you want, and you need, but you don't
And I want, and I need, but I don't
Yes we want, and we need, but we don't
Track Name: Wayward Girl
Wayward Girl © Brealyn Sheehan 2014

I am a drifter
I thrive when my spirit feels free
I love to travel the world
There's so many sights I've yet to see

And if I'm lost in the desert
I'll see your face like a mirage
Know that my heart is pining for you
Though I can't always be where you are

Cause though I'm a gypsy
Roaming throughout the world
I will always come home to you
Cause I am your wayward girl

The map says “here be dragons”
But it's only to mark the unknown
I must go and explore for myself
If I don't go then I'll never know

And if I'm drunk like a sailor
And stumbling alone from some bar
I will navigate my way home
By the light of the shimmering stars

Cause though I'm a gypsy
Roaming throughout the world
I will always come home to you
Cause I am your wayward girl
Yes I am your wayward girl
