Chris Barrett – “Used” single

“Babe, I drown in the sea of your words, tempted to expect the worst. I’ll follow you but it hurts. When will this silence find the (just) end? The heat of this moment rising. Baby, silence kills me again and you like it too much. I feel used.” – lyrics

‘Used’ tells an emotional tale of a regretful young man who shares a problematic relationship with his significant other. Apparently, he feels anguished and used. Therefore, he no longer wants to be a puppet under his companion’s control.

‘Used’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses slow-burning instrumentation decorated with a warm contemporary R&B aroma.

“This song is a very personal song for me. It is about a relationship that is basically doomed from the start because the man is being used by the woman to just satisfy whatever she wants. It comes from a personal place for me and I know many others in the world have been there too.” – Chris Barrett
