I summon the power of the music Otter! <woman involved!>

I once again summon the almighty power of the Otter to assist me ...

There is currently a girl lying on the floor of my bedroom, completely stressed about the fact that she cannot find a song that she heard on the radio. She has promised GREAT REWARDS to anyone that can find it, and only the Otter is able to save her...

This is what she knows... yes, seriously ...

It's a guy... not necessarily a solo artist, but definitely a man's voice (yes, that narrows it down)...

It has something to do with, and I quote:

"I wasn't a good person" bla bla bla "because of you I'm better" bla bla bla, or something along those lines... "you came into my life" bla bla bla... "I want to be better because of you" bla bla bla...

It isn't a country song, she insists... more like the style of Train, Green Day, those types...

Anyone?! Help me John Q. Otter, you're my only hope!

Google seems to think Darius - Better Man. Is google right? (hopefully!)

DARIUS LYRICS

"Better Man"

It's two o'clock in the morning
Thought you said that you would call
You took all my pride from me
So I'd be glad to fall and crawl
It's not like me to ever care
That's the side of me you dare
And I don't want to spend another sleepless night
Noooooo
Never being right.

I know that I'm not perfect
And sometimes I'm just not worth it
But you make me want to be a better man
And you make me want to be the best that I can

Tell me now what I should do
I know all the things I've done
If I could I would take them back maybe then I'd be the one
It's not like me to even try
Because of you I've changed my mind
And I don't want to spend another day of my life
Nooooo
Never being right.

I know that I'm not perfect
And sometimes I'm just not worth it
But you make me want to be a better man
Oh you make me want to be the best that I can.

And I hate to wake you up
But I can't sleep without your touch
I need to hear you still could love me
Now I know I've been a fool
And I would change it if I could
But until I find a way to grow please don't go

Oh don't you know that you make me want to be a better man
Oh you make me want to be the best that I can.
You make me want to be a better man.

If she knows what radio station, and what time, most radio's websites can pull the songs played around a certain time.

"The Reason" by Hoobastank

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know
I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

Otters typically don't come around these parts. I sneak in from time to time.

dooku, the first thing that popped into my head was that hoobastank song, as well.

it's been on the radio for A WHILE now.

and in the style of Train and Green Day? hmmm, pretty wide range of styles there.

just the other day I was all worked over by not remembering a song I had heard at one of the stores at Pentagon Mall - by the time I got to the parking garage it hit me it was a Interpol song.
