    There's a song that KROQ used to play in the early 90s. I never knew the title or who sang it, and only remember a couple lyrics. For some reason I've been thinking about this song lately and it's driving me nuts that I don't know the title or artist. I don't know who to ask so I'm taking a chance and asking here. Here are the lyrics as I remember them:

    I've got the message
    I've got the stars
    I've got a pocket full of hope

    I'm on the street, bittersweet
    That's how I see the world

    The singer was male and sounded like he had a British accent.

    Anybody have a clue? Thanks

    Call me crazy, but that sounds like a song by the band Material Issue. Can't remember the name, but I'm about 90% sure.

    EDIT: I read the other posts, no one else figured it out yet, right?

    Also, here is their biggest hit: Does this sound like the band?[video=youtube;YcRtlj8KXT4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcRtlj8KXT4[/video]
