Barry Peelen on SoundBetter

I'm 26-year-old songwriter based in San Luis Obispo, CA. I consider Indie Rock, Hip-Hop, Alternative Rock and Pop to be my "comfort zones" creatively, but I'm happy to experiment in genres. I write mostly using 32-bar-form (AABA) & emphasize the use of hooks in melody, lyrical storytelling, and engaging instrumental progressions.

Key: F#
Chords: C#, F#, Fm, G#
Tuning: CGCGCE

Chaos Water
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ve been chin-deep in the water
I don’t think you would have talked to me back then
Cause I’m a son, where you’re a daughter
And father’s don’t want drowning men
To take their baby’s arm

So, I’ll swim;
I’m swimming
Up from the bottom of the chaos water
Where I hear, hear Satan
Telling me I can never free my soul
But baby, your love is gonna free my soul

As you can see
I’m not the man that I used to be
My heart’s got some broken parts;
I’ll give you the best of what’s left of me, oh my

‘Cause I want to feel that high
When you tell me I’ve been on your mind, tonight
When all your friends, we’ve met
And they tell you I’m alright
I’m alright

So, I’ll swim;
I’m swimming
Up from the bottom of the chaos water
Where I hear, hear Satan
Cursing your name because you freed my soul
Baby, your love is gonna free my soul
Baby, your love is gonna free my soul
Baby, your love is gonna free my soul
