MusicVideo/Music Question

Can you name the mellow song and the band for a music video which featured a girl with dark hair slowly walking down the street in the early morning carrying a pair of shoes from the mid-90s?

A member of our music forum has been posting all over the web for this, but hasn't had much luck, so I thought I'd bring the challenge here. He doesn't remember any lyrics, but provides these clues:

1) It was a fairly mellow song
2) Probably concerning the breaking up or a one night stand.
3) It was song by a male singer, (Grant Lee Buffalo springs to mind, or at least someone with a similar style. The only other memory I have is that the girl had dark hair,walking slowly down the street in the early morning.

"Meet Virginia" by Train? Haven't seen it for a while but I can remember Rebecca Gayheart and some high heels?

Wasn't there a Third Eye Blind or Matchbox 20 or Hoobastank video that was all about the girl walking home with shoes? Either them or Goo Goo Dolls. Or Primative Radio Gods.

Christ, I can even see the video, and I can't fucking identify the artists! Damn you, marijuana-induced memory loss and the blandness of mid-90s post-grunge!

Thanx for the quick guesses. I will check with my forum member and see if any of the above strike a bell. Thanx!

Was it the commercial or the shoes that were from the mid-90s?

Stuck out in my mind as an awful song, where the guy is singing to his psychiatrist about his girlfriend. Meanwhile, she breaks a heel and carries her shoes instead.

Our forum member with the music memory loss has replied: "Nope,none of those. I think the girl was wearing a summery dress and was possibly walking home after a one-night stand"

Maybe, Londonboots is on to something. Let me know if anyone comes up with anything else and thanx.

Thanx again for all the replies--impressive crowd here.

Our forum member thinks LondonBoots may be right--now we just have to track the missing culprit down. Thanx again.

Our forum member has confirmed: That's it Buffalo Tom- Wiser. I downloaded the song and it's definitely the one. Thanks to everyone for helping...I've just mentally bought you a beer.
Thanks again.

Any leads on finding the Wiser video? Devon Odessa was the actress in it.
