I need some help and I'm hoping you guys are the ones for the job. I was listening to the radio this morning and heard a song which sounded like a cover of Lonestar's - Not A Day Goes By, it was a young girl kind of a mandy moore-ish voice. I'm not positive that it was a cover but it had the words "Not a day goes by that I don't think of you" which is the same in Lonestar's song. Hope you guys can help!

Wow nobody's answered yet... I have a bit more that might help. It's not a cover of Lonestar: it goes "Not a day goes by that I don't think of you, your angel eyes something something something." Yea not much help but maybe someone'll know what it is. There's another one I need help with too. There's this one hard rock song that goes: "Everything in my life seems so wrong wrong wrong." Sorry that's all I know. Hope someone can help.

I can't find anything on your first song...it all comes up Lonestar. I haven't heard that song, but the lyrics are pretty. I think this might be your second song...kinda grim, huh? ::

Wrong

Motograter

I hear voices deep within me

Finding out I'm not so strong

Sometimes I don't think so clearly

Get the feeling something's wrong

Wrong

Got it wrong

Always wrong

Something's wrong

Infectious, A scab unto the world

Seems that my whole life's been a farce

Wishing on the stars

I'm just a poster for what we shouldn't be

I'd put your whole world in a noose

On the surface I seem normal

Everything's as it should be

Farther down though I'm so ugly

Something you wont ever see

Wrong

Got it wrong

Always wrong

Something's wrong

Infectious, A scab unto the world

Seems that my whole life's been a farce

Wishing on the stars

I'm just a poster for what you shouldn't be

I'd put the whole world in a noose

Plagued with sickness

Stained from inside out

Lately I feel so healthy

Get the feeling somehting's wrong

Wrong

Got it wrong

Always wrong

Something's wrong

Infectious, A scab unto the world

It seems that my whole life's been a farce

Wishing on the stars

You're just a poster for what I shouldn't be

You'd put your whole world in a noose

How about Vanessa Olivarez...? She was one of eight "American Idol" finalists. It's no surprise the guys from the states didn't know the song or could find anything: she released the CD single, "The One," written by Canadians and released only in Canada to become a best selling single. http://www.vanessaolivarez.org/

By the way: I know neither singer nor song - I was just eager to make my first helpful contribution! Hope this helps.

Another by the way: I'm sitting in N.B. as well!!

Jakob,

Good job! I went to the site and it previews the song...it's very pretty. I liked her on "American Idol". I wonder why they didn't release the song here. Here are the lyrics...

The One

Vanessa Olivarez

I know that I'm supposed to be happy for you

I wish that I could wish you well

But I can't stop what my heart is thinkin' every night

Now I'll have to keep it to myself

What I'm feelin' I can't help

A secret I can never tell

Chorus

Not a day goes by

When I don't think of you

And your angel eyes

That I'm so drawn into

If you'd say the word

Into your arms I'd run

Oh, I sure wish that I could be the one

How could I have known she'd leave you breathless

When I left you alone just for awhile

Now she's the one who's become the centre of you life

When you fell, you fell a thousand miles

Chorus

Not a day goes by

When I don't think of you

And your angel eyes

That I'm so drawn into

If you'd say the word

Into your arms I'd run

Oh, I sure wish that I could be the one

Who in your eyes could do no wrong

Who'd be with you your whole life long

I can't believe my chance is gone

Repeat Chorus

Oh, I sure wish that I could be the one

Lol Thank you so much Jakob and Tenacious Peaches! I finally downloaded it and it feels so nice not having it run through my head over and over and over... well you get the point! Ok the second that wasn't it Tenacious. It went "Everything in my life seems so wrong" and then he screams wrong over a few times... Lol

Any chance this is it?

Right Place, Wrong Time

~ The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

I was in the right place, but it must have been the wrong time

I was sayin' the right things, but I must have used the wrong line

I was on the right trip, but I must have used the wrong car

Head is in a bad place and I wonder what it's good for

I was in the right place, but it must have been the wrong time

My head is in a bad place, but I'm havin' such a good time

I've been runnin', tryin' to get hung up in my mind

Really got to give myself a good talkin' to this time

Just need a little brain salad surgery

I got to cure my insecurity

And I was in the wrong place, but it must have been the right time

I was in the right place, but it must have been the wrong song

I was in the right thing, but it seemed like a wrong wrong

'Cause I was in the right world, but it seemed like a wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong

Slippin', dodgin', sneakin', peepin', hidin' out down the street

See my life shakin' with every who I meet

Refried confusion is a-makin' itself clear

Wonder where to, where do I go to get on outta here

'Cause I was in the right place, but it must have been the wrong time

And I was sayin' the right thing, but I must have used the wrong line

I took the right road but I must have took a wrong turn

I took a right move but I made it at the wrong time

I was in the right trip but I made it in the wrong car

My head is in a good place and I wonder what it's there for

'Cause my skull is in a bad place

Oh Sara,

Please give credit where credit is due.

Right Time, Wrong Place was written and first recorded by Dr. John (Mac Rebennack).

That song and Such A Night got a lot of airplay for the former voo-doo styled "Night Tripper" out of New Orleans.

Dr. John is featured in The Band's Last Waltz concert movie. He will be performing with B.B. King next month locally (in Santa Rosa, CA).

Emerson, Lake & Palmer titled an album "Brain Salad Surgery" from that strange phrase in Right Time, Wrong Place.

Yes yes yes. Her first name is Jessica or Vanessa, last name Oliveros or Ontiveros. She is Canadian. This song was very popular around 2004/2005. I lived very near the canadian border and could pick up the radio stations. It was never played on the US stations.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you

And your angel eyes that I'm so drawn into

If you'd say the words into your arms I would run

Oh I sure wish that I could be the one.

Something something something...but when you fell, you fell a thousand miles

 

I LOVED that song but never heard it again after moving south in 2008. I have tried desperately to find it or the artist ever since to no avail.

Good luck!
