Default the mystery mellotron song

I heard this song in a store while shopping today, and I don't know who it's by (which bugs me because I like to know who did it) any help would be greatly appreciated.

The contains a verse that has an acoustic guitar which is somewhat like "Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard" the chorus that has a synth that sounds like a Mellotron back by a cello and after the last chorus it ends with a Country-style solo/lick that has a slightly overdriven Telecaster sound.
The only lyrics I can remember for now is "Is there nothing I can do."

this is good... you know WHERE you heard it, I mean. One possibility would be
go to the store, and ask where their muzak or whatever is piped in from... could
be a radio station they leave a radio tuned to even, and, you could call or
email the station, asking the DJ.
If its a large department or grocery store, they are likely to use a service, and you
can go from there ?

mbStu,
Thanks for your input.

I've heard the song again today and I have a such hard time remembering lyrics. I forget the open line, and the other lines I did remember weren't helpful in Google-ing it.


I get a new philosophy...

She was someone I was never going to meet.

You're the living proof...


I wish I had the face that caught my eye (I'm not sure about the exact wording.)
