Help me Find this Song I heard...

When I was in Boulder, it was, maybe 11 or 12:15pm on March 7th, I heard this song on the radio. Somewhere in the middle of the dial that was playing some folky, independent stuff (though I can't recall the exact station).

There was a song on the radio just before I met up with a friend, I can only remember vague details. Lead singer with guitar, craggy voice, kinda like Tom Waits; had some background vocals. The lyrics were a repeating pattern, something like, "We used to say, {catchy quote}. {Anecdote about rambunctious youth calling for that catchy quote}. But now we're older, and we don't say that thing anymore." Repeat.

Anyone have any hints?
