This has been bugging me for about 5 (ish) years, because I feel like at one point or another, I knew who sang this song.

You are watching: Songs similar to a thousand years

I don't know any of the words, but here's what I do know:

The specific part I can remember sounds like the chorus of A Thousand Years, but rather than words, it's more of a refrain (I'm pretty sure it's just woah-ing). It goes; 'WOAH-oh-oh, WOAH-oh-oh, WOAH-oh-oh-oh'.

It's more of an alternative, maybe Indie-ish song. Male singer, definitely a band. In the ilk of Lifehouse et al.

I'm fairly sure it was used in the closing of an episode of Cold Case. The episode probably would have been from around 2005, but I can't guarantee it. I've searched through the song list from the episode I thought it was, but haven't found anything close, and had no luck for episodes before of after.

If you can help at all, even if it's suggesting other places I could look to find out, I will be forever grateful!

Since OP didn't provide it, here's a link to Perri's song, with the chorus starting at the 1:00 minute mark. I had never heard the song before, so this was needed.

Sorry, I debated added a link but thought this was a pretty well known song - you know what they say about people who assume!

Also, I'm pretty sure you're looking for The Fray's I'll Look After You.

You freaking genius! I could seriously kiss you right now, you have made my night!

(Also, of COURSE it's The freakin' Fray! Told you I knew it - I'm kicking myself right now!)

The actual scene itself. Nice work! We're now nearing 99.9% certainty that we've got this thing solved. Come back OP!

Holy shit! You, sir, are a neat dude (lady?)! I was convinced the song was in the episode 'Joseph', but I guess I was well and truly wrong!
