Help me ID this song

A couple weeks ago, I heard a song in an airport bathroom, and have been trying to figure out what it is ever since. I used Garageband to record the main vocal theme via midi piano -- here's my clip (warning: autoplaying audio) .

I think my rendering is slightly slower than the actual tempo.

The song has an ethereal, indie feel, with a female vocalist. A snatched phrase from the chorus, which is a different part of the song than the piano piece I linked, is something like "'til it comes." I also think I heard "sadness" elsewhere in the song. I know that's not a lot to go off of.

Many thanks for helping me identify this earworm!

Your clip reminded me of Sneaker Pimps 6 Underground. It's not exact, but this popped into my head when I heard your sound bite.

I keep thinking I hear Frou Frou in there. Maybe "Let Go"?

Reminds me a bit of Paradise Circus by Massive Attack.

Doesn't match exactly, but it reminds me of You Can Have Manhattan, by Sara Bareilles

Sure sounds like What's it all about Alfie to me.
