Brooke Fraser “Something In The Water”

Brooke Fraser “Something In The Water”

I was looking at flights to New Zealand to escape the impending New York winter when I came across the lovely Kiwi singer/songwriter Brooke Fraser. “Something In The Water, treat ” the lead single from her 2010 album ‘Flags’ is our song of the week here at Radio Unleashed.

New Zealand Time

Just has the title implies there is something going on with this song. It’s folky with an undeniable American style to it, approved but it’s also easy to sing along to. Clocking in at just under three minutes it’s a short sweet tune to warm up your day as winter starts on this side of the world.

Listening to Fraser belt it out in such a style makes me want to get back on the folk/Americana band wagon, and forget I ever fell in love with Dubstep. Scott Kara from The New Zealand Herald put it best, the song is “a right little thigh-slapper, with a bit of a stomp to it, and it’s about good times, drinking wine, and being in love.”

Lyrics

Do do do do do do do do do do

I wear a demeanor made of bright pretty things
What she wears, what she wears, what she wears
Birds singing on my shoulder in harmony it seems
How they sing, how they sing, how they sing

Give me nights of solitude, red wine just a glass or two,
Recilined in a hammock on a balmy evening
I’ll pretend that its no thing that’s skipping my heart when I think of you
thinking of me babe I’m crazy over you

Aaah Aaah Aaah
Theres something in the water, something in the water
Aaah Aaah Aaah
There’s something in the water, that makes me love you like –

I’ve got halo’s made of summer, rhythms made of spring
What she wears, what she wears, what she wears
I got crowns of words a woven each one a song to sing
Oh I sing, oh I sing, oh I sing

Give me long days in the sun,
preludes to the nights to come
Previews of the mornings laying in all lazy
give me something fun to do like a life of loving you
kiss me quick now baby I’m still crazy over you

Aaah Aaah Aaah
Theres something in the water, something in the water
Aaah Aaah Aaah
Theres something in the water that makes me love you like I do

Oooh oooh oooh [x3]

Give me nights of solitude, red wine just a glass or two, give me something fun to do

Aaah Aaah Aaah
Theres something in the water, something in the water
Aaah Aaah Aaah
Theres something in the water that makes me love you like I do

Aaah Aaah Aaah
Theres something in the water, something in the water
Aaah Aaah Aaah
Theres something in the water that makes me love you like I –

Do do do do do do do
