I'm pretty sure this isn't it, but I'll throw it out there cos I love Jason Mraz soooo much.

On a similar numerical theme but a bit more abstruse ...

                         i x 103

       (This clue is in the title & in the lyric).


Very good RD... I loved that old song!  I love it!

Is it Culture Club - Karma Chameleon?

Desert loving in your eyes all the way.
If I listened to your lies would you say
I'm a man (a man) without conviction,
I'm a man (a man) who doesn't know
how to sell (to sell) a contradiction.
You come and go, you come and go.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Didn't hear your wicked words every day
and you used to be so sweet, I heard you say
that my love (my love) was an addiction.
When we cling (we cling) our love is strong.
When you go (you go) you're gone forever.
You string along, you string along.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Every day is like survival (sur-vi-val),
you're my lover (you're my lover), not my rival.
Every day is like survival (sur-vi-val),
you're my lover (you're my lover), not my rival.

I'm a man (a man) without conviction,
I'm a man (a man) who doesn't know
how to sell (to sell) a contradiction.
You come and go, you come and go.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,

Yes, Tiny Bubbles, (e.g. by Dean Martin).
I thought age of this tune would make it a bit more difficult, but no.

I don't think Don Ho's original made it across the pond, only Deano's version.
There is a dreadful version by a Scottish artist called Sydney Devine, (his singing definitely isn't divine).

I found his version on youtube.  It definitely wasn't devine.  I would've posted the link, but listening to him gave me a headache. [xx(]

Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody"

Words and music by freddie mercury

Is this the real life-
Is this just fantasy-
Caught in a landslide-
No escape from reality-
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see-
Im just a poor boy,i need no sympathy-
Because Im easy come,easy go,
A little high,little low,
Anyway the wind blows,doesnt really matter to me,
To me

Mama,just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger,now hes dead,
Mama,life had just begun,
But now Ive gone and thrown it all away-
Mama ooo,
Didnt mean to make you cry-
If Im not back again this time tomorrow-
Carry on,carry on,as if nothing really matters-

Too late,my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine-
Bodys aching all the time,
Goodbye everybody-Ive got to go-
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth-
Mama ooo- (any way the wind blows)
I dont want to die,
I sometimes wish Id never been born at all-

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche,scaramouche will you do the fandango-
Thunderbolt and lightning-very very frightening me-
Galileo,galileo,
Galileo galileo
Galileo figaro-magnifico-
But Im just a poor boy and nobody loves me-
Hes just a poor boy from a poor family-
Spare him his life from this monstrosity-
Easy come easy go-,will you let me go-
Bismillah! no-,we will not let you go-let him go-
Bismillah! we will not let you go-let him go
Bismillah! we will not let you go-let me go
Will not let you go-let me go
Will not let you go let me go
No,no,no,no,no,no,no-
Mama mia,mama mia,mama mia let me go-
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me,for me,for me-

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye-
So you think you can love me and leave me to die-
Oh baby-cant do this to me baby-
Just gotta get out-just gotta get right outta here-

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters-,nothing really matters to me,

Any way the wind blows...

Artist: Ray Boltz lyrics
Album: No Greater Sacrifice

   


"One Single Flame"


In the heart of the believer
Burns a fire for the soul
To light the way
And fight against the cold
But if we all would gather
Joining hearts in one accord
The blaze would rise much higher
United in the Lord

CHORUS:
One single flame
An everlasting light
Shining through the darkness
Shattering the night
A healing fire
Lifting up the Saviorís name
May a world of true believers
Burn one single flame

Sometimes we put up boundaries
With traditions from the past
Itís hard to move forward looking back
For the Fatherís kingdom
We must set aside these walls
Standing undivided
Let us rise up for his call

CHORUS (repeat)

Today and for the future
Itís burning brighter than before
To those who come behind us
Let us pass the torch

CHORUS (repeat)


"Life is not measured by the number of Breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

or: lyrics by John Prine, "Crooked piece of time"


It's a crooked piece of time
That we live in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we're livin' in oh baby
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

Things got rough
Things got tough
Things got harder than hard
We were just tryin' to make a livin'
In our own back yard
We're born too late
We die too soon
Anxiety's a terrible crime
If you can't come now
Don't come at all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we live in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we live in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

Yesterday morning an ill wind came
Blew your picture right out of the picture frame
Even blew the candle out from underneath the flame
Yesterday morning an ill wind came

It's a crooked piece of time
That we live in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we live in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we live in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

Things got rough
Things got tough
Things got harder than hard
We was just tryin' to make a livin'
In our back yard

"crooked" and "flame" are synonyms for most of the lyric.
This punkish tune* was from a #1 album in UK and USA in 1996/7, (lyric is not title of album).
