music fans. I love the album Smoke + Mirrors (Apple Music). Today I was listening to the song "Dream" when I noticed this:
A little after 2:53, the vocal melody sounds incredibly familiar. I have almost definitely heard a song which this song, while great, apparently ripped off for this part.
So I had four people I know listen to the song. Two of them said it sounded familiar while the others didn't recognize it at all.
Thus my task for you music fans is to see if you can find this song for me and confirm I am not crazy.

More information: two things I remember are that I think the singer was a woman and it was a pop-style song from around 2000 to the mid late 2000s, but more likely between 2000 and 2005. I don't really have any guess as to the who the singer is.

The part I’m referring to in “Dream” starts with “I know all your reasons...” and goes on for a few more lines

EDIT: Another person I asked says she thinks it MIGHT be a Taylor Swift song.

    Any chance you can link that piece for people that are not registered at Spotify?

    But the band should make money off people listening to their music... Aug 16, 2018 at 18:00

    I just thought it would increase your chances to get an answer :) And I didn't know, whether they use other channels for distributing their music as well.

    Added Tidal, couldn’t figure out how to get a Deezer link without getting a Deezer account (on my phone) Aug 16, 2018 at 18:50

    Premium content is ad-supported on YouTube, so at least theoretically, those views are helping pay the original artists as well. And, or course, at least some people who watch a video are (hopefully) going on to buy the track or album, or concert tix or merch. Aug 17, 2018 at 16:18

It sounds like the chorus of "How You Remind Me" by Nickelback. Start at 27 seconds in.
