Song Question:
I'm looking for a song?

by Casey
(New Zealand)

Hi, the song I'm looking for was popular in the late 80's/early 90's,

a female sang it with a guitar.

On the video clip she was sitting on a seat with her guitar,

I thought it may have been sung by Melissa Etheridge or Alanis Morissette but I can't remember the name of it.

I think the lyrics were something like: "what I am is what you are away",

it was a different sort of song (sort of gypsy style in the video clip).

Please help me to put a name on it,

thanks Casey. P.S: She may have been a "one hit wonder", but the song was good.
