FAWM! First song up

This one is called “Peril on the Sea,” loosely inspired by the hymn and a recent breakup! I’m really happy with the song!

See the FAWM entry or below for lyrics and chords!

Peril on the Sea
Madison Metricula Roberts
Key: A

Intro:
Amaj7 Gmaj7
x2

Verse 1:
Amaj7 Gmaj7
Danceband on an ocean liner
Dmaj7 D
we're playing hard but we're not headliners
Amaj7 C
I am like you and you are like me
D7sus2 Fmaj7
we'll keep playing but we're sinking slowly
Bm11/E
And I more in common
Amaj7 G Amaj7
with those in peril on the sea

Verse 2:
Amaj7 Gmaj7
It started out with gentle sailing
Dmaj7 D
But winter water sent our hearts and heads swaying
Amaj7 C
Once the wave crashed and forced us hard to our knees
D7sus2 Fmaj7
we faced ice between us, the frozen jagged debris
Bm11/E
And I knew I belonged there
Amaj7 G Amaj7
with those in peril on the sea


Verse 3:
Amaj7 Gamj7
I see now we never should have started
Dmaj7 D
With such high hopes but our heart's course uncharted
Amaj7 C
I put my trust in your role as band lead
D7sus2 Fmaj7
But you didn't tell me when and changed to a new key
Bm11/E
I am not different to you
Amaj7 G Dmaj7 Amaj7
than those in peril on the sea
Dmaj7 Amaj7
The sea
G D
The sea

Asus2 A
