A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Music Prompt #55 “Something in the Water” by Carrie Underwood

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another exciting week at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, this is Sanaa Rizvi, your kind hostess this week with a music video that is bound to get you guys believing.

Often there’re times when I wake in the morning bursting with excitement; wondering what intuition will toss back at me, like gifts from the sea. A gift formed by feeling and instinct; of knowing without reasoning which is further ignited by hope. It’s said that a
hunch is creativity trying to tell us something. Perhaps it’s time we strain our ears and
listen. This week I want you guys to write down something which has come from deep within. Follow your intuition.

He said, “I’ve been where you’ve been before.
Down every hallway’s a slamming door.
No way out, no one to come and save me.
Wasting a life that the Good Lord gave me.

Then somebody said what I’m saying to you,
Opened my eyes and told me the truth.”
They said, “Just a little faith, it’ll all get better.”
So I followed that preacher man down to the river

and now I’m stronger

There must’ve been something in the water
Oh, there must’ve been something in the water

Well, I heard what he said and I went on my way
Didn’t think about it for a couple of days
Then it hit me like a lightning late one night
I was all out of hope and all out of fight

Couldn’t fight back the tears so I fell on my knees
Saying, “God, if you’re there come and rescue me.”
Felt love pouring down from above
Got washed in the water, washed in the blood

and now I’m changed
and now I’m stronger
There must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water

And now I’m singing along to amazing grace
Can’t nobody wipe this smile off my face
Got joy in my heart, angels on my side
Thank God almighty, I saw the light

Gonna look ahead, no turning back
Live every day, give it all that I have
Trust in someone bigger than me
Ever since the day that I believed I am changed

And now I’m stronger
There must be something in the water

Oh, there must be something in the water (how sweet the sound)
Oh, there must be something in the water (that saved a wretch)
Oh, there must be something in the water (like me)
Oh, yeahI am changed (I once was lost)
Stronger (but now I’m found)
(was blind but now I see)
