6 years trying to ID this song, Please Help

Recommended Posts

I had just about given up hope of ever finding the title/artist of this song, until I stumbled upon your forum. After reading some of the posts here I know that if anyone can help me, the people here can :)

The song is from either 1994, 1995 or 1996. I first heard it when I was living in L.A. on KROQ. From what I can remember it's a more mellow song, I think with some parts that have a string orchestra in the background. As far as the lyrics, from what I can remember the chorus goes something along the lines of...

I can't find the words to tell you..... something something something

I just want to be right by you.

Something something something

It's a beautiful day (Singer ends on a higher note)

The chorus is repeated two or three times in the song and the only lyrics that I am 100% about are the "I just want to be right by you" and "It's a beautiful day". I wish I could provide more details, but that is all I can remember from it :( I believe the song title went something along the lines of "Song for a rainy day" or "Song for an early morning" or Early Morning Song" or some combination thereof. Please help me to identify this song, it's been driving me nuts for so long and the only time I have heard it after that was in a Starbucks 6 years ago. Unfortunately they had no idea what the name of the song was, and thus began my search.

Thank you for your time

It's a male singer, wasn't listed under the singers name though. It was under a band name, you know one of those ones you think to yourself "hmmmm that's easy to remember, no need to write that down". Still kicking myself for that one. Male singer, kind of a slower alternative/rock type song. Thank you both for your help, it is very much appreciated :)

The lyrics look like it could be the right one, but I don't think they ever played mike and the mechanics on KROQ(not the right genre for the station). Gonna pick it up after I get paid, but if you're right you will have solved the thing that has been bugging me for so long and have a nice surprise coming to ya. You don't know how much it means to me to find out the answer to this. I'll let you know, thanks again for your help ::

I think I may have found something promising...

Beautiful Day by 3 Colours Red

Things you forgot to say?will haunt you

Been down here a million days

I know you'll get me through

You don't need to

Because I'll never be alone

Do you cry?any more?

You're in the never ending?

Bitter and condescending blue

I just wanna be by you

And everything will turn to blue

The dream is a fallacy come true

Just wanna spend some time with you

On a beautiful day

Seeing the morning in?forget to?

Worry about the things?that hurt you

You're becoming dependent now

Is it cold where you are too?

Freeze no more?no more

You're in the never ending?

Bitter and condescending blue

I just wanna be by you

And everything will turn to blue

The dream is a fallacy come true

Just wanna spend some time with you

On a beautiful day

We got so throw it away

'Cos we will be as lucky as the last time, child

The habits don't blow it away

We are on the other side?

and we know you're talking about the old times

Walking down an open road but

Failing to disguise?revealing the signs?

Nothing you can do will change me

It's a beautiful day.

The time is a little off from what you describe, the album this song is on, Revolt, was released in 1999. 3 Colours Red is a British band, however Beautiful Day was a minor hit in the U.S.

SARA I LOVE YOU! I could have sworn it was earlier in the 90's than that, but you guessed it. You have no idea how happy this makes me to finally know what that song was :: Do you have paypal or anything cause I wanna send you something to show how much I appreciate this. Maybe buy a cd or something I dunno. You wouldn't think a song would cause this much of a fuss, but the times I heard this song was in a special place with a special person that are all but memories now. Seriously itunes codes, paypal to buy a cd, you name it it's yours.
