MrsEnn2Bee: 

How about Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros with their song”Home”. it  is a beautiful song; not sure how much popularity it had in your place though… 

Maybe something by british artist Frank Turner? <br /><br />

Okay I don’t know if the lyrics work for you on any of these, but I’ll just throw them out there.

Incubus – Monuments and Melodies

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4y2fviGATw

Dredg – Information (acoustic)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9p8-M_TAbs

Eric Emery – Cote by Karnivool cover

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ure-MRqH-WY

Slipknot – Vermillion part 2

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvetJ9U_tVY

Brother’s Born – Before Your Eyes

Anberlin – The Unwinding Cable Car

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ei1-vWL-t0

Hurt – That (Such a Thing)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h774ydphvds

Bush has some nice acoustic songs (live on the rooftop especially IMO) but his lyrics aren’t usually very happy/romantic.

Westwood:  Vermillion pt 2 is such a beautiful song; 

<br />After reading Incubus, it also makes me think of their song “Drive”. I really like the “whatever tomorrow brings I’ll be there, with open arms and open eyes”-chorus… (not sure if the rest of the lyrics will work though)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgT9zGkiLig

You and Me by Lifehouse…. one of my top 3 choices, along with Thankyou for loving me – Bon Jovi (my current number 1) and All of my by John Legend (FIs favourite choice)… all completely different lol 🙂

Ray Lamontagne would be good to look at. Also Rod Stewart, my personal favorite is “You’re In My Heart.” Amazing, original, sweet.
