I thought this question was more MPSIMS style than GQ style.
I’m trying to find out what song the following lyrics are from, as well as who the artist is. It’s a modern song, I believe in the style of trip-hop (has areally heavy hip-hop type beat, along with what sounds like guitars).The singer is female and has a high voice.

Lyrics may also not be incorrect in some words…but if you know it, I would be very appreciative if any of you could help me out.

I am very surprised. I can never Name That Tune. Except this time.
The song is “Strangers” by Portishead, from their album Dummy. The band is Beth Gibbons, possessor of the only truly sexy soprano I can recall, and Geoff Barrow, a producer known for a long time as “that guy from Portishead (UK)”, hence the band’s name.

It keeps going on from there but that’s all I’m going to transcribe (guess at wildly) right now.
Ha, that MUST be it. I thought it sounded like something by portishead. I was a little surprised when I heard trip-hop type music on my local public radio station. THat day I found out they had a new show that played trip-hop, break beats, and other “underground” type stuff. Now I know :). Thanks Boris!
