Song with puzzling but poetic lyrics

by Jess
(Salt Lake City, UT)

This is a song that I heard over and over for a couple of weeks in the early or mid 2000's. It was written and sung by a solo female artist. It starts with high clear lyrics that I could have sworn contain the phrase "I feel like" and had imagery of golden light and space??? The lyrics were really pretty but also poetic and so esoteric I basically otherwise only remember what it felt like hearing it . . . so, yeah. Kind of a long shot. The singer was a guest on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She was thin, Caucasian, and had long blonde hair (which I realize narrows this down pretty much not at all), and it was mentioned she'd been primarily a songwriter until she came out with this song. After the break, Leno spoke to her and one of the things he asked was what the lyrics mean. It got a laugh from the audience but then someone came and switched the channel before I heard the answer and it's been bugging me ever since. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
The only other thing I can remember is that on the show she came across as thrilled and kind of naturally sweet from being on the show, rather than polished pop star smiley.
