Name That Tune #345987

NameThatTuneFilter! Female singer, newer song, high, breathy. Difficulty: only a few words to go by. Help a sister out - I'd love to hear the whole song!

I think I heard it while out shopping (US - grocery store?) but may be from TV. The words I think I heard are "my love, lifts me up(?)...back to start/beginning". If only I thought to Shazam - I was sure it would be an easy Google but apparently not. Sounds like it would fit well into one of the Twilight movies (although it's not on those soundtracks, I checked) or at the end of a House episode. Think Florence and the Machine, but lighter and airier; more like Psapp's "Cosy in the Rocket". Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

googling suggests maybe Westlife's "Beautiful Tonight"? (lyrics)

Hey, cool song! To be more specific, the song I am trying to find is performed by a single female vocalist, with a lot less instrumental stuff in the background, although it does sound pretty "produced".

Is it Janelle Monae?

Nope, neither of those, but thanks! They are both more "pop"-y than the song I heard, if that is helpful.

Is it a female cover of The Scientist?

Is it Leona Lewis - Broken

Lights by Ellie Goulding?

Could it have been Lana Del Rey? I don't know her music well enough to know lyrics, but your description sounds like her.

Taylor Swift, Back to December?

Also, lots of things by Lights, like Romance Is or Drive My Soul has a very light, airy sound, although I can't find any lyrics specifically matching your request from her.

I was going to suggest Lana Del Ray. Maybe Shanon Van Etten?

Getting close with Imogen Heap (and Frou Frou, that the link went to) and Lana Del Ray - that's the sound I'm looking for! If nothing else I have a ton of new awesome music to check out, ha.

Haven't listened to it, but another possibility from Google is Geri Halliwell's Lift Me Up.
