Barry Peelen on SoundBetter

I'm 25-year-old songwriter based in San Luis Obispo, CA. I consider Folk Pop, Indie Rock, Americana, & Adult Contemporary to be "comfort zones" creatively, but I'm happy to experiment in many genres. I write mostly using 32-bar-form (AABA) & emphasize the use of hooks in melody, lyrical storytelling, and engaging instrumental progressions.

You can read the lyrics to my song The Day We Lost Our Minds below, and can listen to the demo on my SoundCloud through this link:

The Day We Lost Our Minds
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh, I’ve been up
I’ve been up for a minute now
You paint your love
As I’m watching the walls come down

And leave my ego for the night
Break me up and I hope I shine
Like the lights around me
While the light’s surrounding you

As we both run from ordinary,
Grateful for the day we lost our minds

Well, there’s this place in San Francisco,
I want to take you there
We’d get lost in parking lots, and you could dye your hair
Any color you want to (x2)

And we'd let sunlight through the windows
Of a car that we can’t buy
Race it to the golden gate, where you could feel the sky
I'd drive all night (x2)

And we could run from ordinary,
Grateful for the day we lost our minds

Oh, I’ve been up
I’ve been up for a minute now
You paint your love
As I’m watching the walls come down
