I did remember, however, that the chorus prominently featured 'ay'-ending words...and also, managed to--near the end--pick up that "today" was in the chorus. Now, I forgot what the song sounded like, so I can't confirm. But by the magic of google, I found the song "So Far Away", and...I think that's the song I heard. Hard to tell given that I heard it going to Tae Kwon Do and thus, forgot basically everything, buuuuuuuuuuut, honestly it doesn't matter whether it was the song I was looking for or not.
Because good music is good. music. And it therefore is a good find anyway, so it's gone on my personal playlist, so there!
