"Inch of Dust" as written by William Hugh Cashion, Samuel Thompson Herring and John Gerrit Welmers....
A part of me you have
A part of me you hold
Apart from me you stand
And there's parts that you had stole

Littering in the cupboards
Like some pieces of the puzzle
A nest just like a mother
The dampness of your sweater

It's never put together
As I watched you from the window
Behind the curtains you turned
Slowly as a teacher
Wrap around you tightly
This love is built in metal
Fall around in shadows

It's never put together
It's never put together
Behind the curtains you turned
Fall slowly as a feather

The part of you I have
The part of you I hide
The parts of you I hold
The parts you left behind

Call me
I'll be there always

And call me
I'll be there always

And call me
I'll be there always

Call me
I'll be there always

Call me
I'll be there always

Part of me you have
A part of me you hold
Apart from me you stand
And there's parts that you had stole

The part of you I have
The part of you I hide
The parts of you I stole
The parts you left behind

    General CommentCorrected Lyrics from their MySpace page:

    A part of me--you have
    A part of me--you hold
    Apart from me--you stand
    And there's parts that you have stole

    You collect them in the cupboards
    Like the pieces of a puzzle
    And nest just like a mother
    In the dampness of your sweater
    And it's never put together
    As I've watched you from the window
    Behind the curtains, winter
    Moves slowly as a tether
    To wrap around you tightly
    As lovers will in meadows
    To fall in love with shadows
    Where the snow is all but melted
    And it's never put together
    It's never put together
    Behind the curtains, winter
    Falls slowly as a feather

    A part of you--I have
    The part of you--I hide
    A part of you I hold
    The part you left behind
    -------------
    Call on me, I'll be there always
    -------------
    A part of me--you have
    A part of me--you hold
    Apart from me--you stand
    And there's parts that you have stole

    A part of you--I have
    The part of you--I hide
    A part of you I stole
    The part you left behind

    General Comment"and there's parts that you had stole"

    I'm not 100% on this, but I think it might be "and there's parts that you extol," which makes more grammatical sense. Also, meaning-wise, he focuses on parts, how parts are separate but they aren't whole, there's part you have and parts you hide. If it's extol, then it could mean there's parts she extols and parts she may not know about, but the idea of one part being stolen could also make sense.
