Lost: A Favorite Song

I am unable to find a song that I once had on my iPod. It's a post-rock number. Although there are no lyrics (that I recall, anyway), there is an extended sample (I don't know from where) of a guy talking about a hot night when the power went out in his apartment complex. He talks about a woman who lit candles, and somehow in the end this leads to an apartment fire. The song feels like the soundtrack to a dream. My memory is not 100% on these details. It's been well over a year since I heard it. But the song was really good and I think about it now and then and I really miss having it. Anyone recognize it?

OK, I'm assuming we can rule out Keren Ann's "Song of Alice" (off Nolita). Sounds like it might utilize the same sample, though.

Let me be the first to take a wild stab at Godspeed. But it doesn't ring a bell.

OMG!!!! It was Keren Ann's "Song for Alice"…. Oh, goodness, thank you Sonny Jim. Thank you. That has been driving me crazy for ages. I knew I was not remembering it correctly because it had just been too long. But you nailed it for me.

Thank you. I love this song.

Yay! Glad to help out. I got a bit thrown by your "post-rock" description (Keren Ann? Post rock?), but, yeah, it's a great song.
