"Rest In the Bed" as written by and Laura Beatrice Marling....
There lies a man of my heart
A fine and complete work of art
Here, I his woman, his home, and his heart
And proud to be playing that part
And proud to be playing that part

Rest in the bed of my bones
All that I have is a home
And all you can do is promise me bold
That you won't let me grow dark or cold
As long as we both shall live

The sirens come and shall feel your call
As a sound as I believe in you

The first bit's the hardest I'm sure
Where our shadows come to the shore
Know that it's you and I till the end
And all I want from life is to hold your hand

All that I have are these bones
And all that I want is a home
And all you can do is promise me bold
That you won't let me grow dark or cold
As long as we both shall live

The sirens come, they always will
But the dart between my heart and his
Is as good as a diamond chain

Rest in the bed of my bones
All that I want is a home
And all you can do is promise me bold
That you won't let me grow dark or cold
As long as we both shall live

    General Commentgaaaah! I've been looking for the lyrics to this song everywhere!
    She performed this song when I saw her in LA and said this song was newer than the new album.
    She also commented that after she wrote the song she realized it fit a very popular movie but
    said she was too embarrassed to say which.
    After she performed, a guy in the audience yelled out "Twilight!" and she started laughing and turned bright red.
    It was awesome.

    Lyric CorrectionThere lies a man of my heart
    A fine and complete work of art
    Here, I his woman, his home, and his heart
    And proud to be playing that part
    And proud to be playing that part

    Rest in the bed of my bones
    All that I want is a home
    And all you can do is promise me bold
    That you won't let me grow dark or cold
    As long as we both shall live

    The bite will come and you'll feel your call
    As a sound as I believe in you

    The first year was the hardest I'm sure
    All shadows come to the shore
    Know that it's you and I till the end
    And all I want from life is to hold your hand

    All that I have are these bones
    And all that I want is a home
    And all you can do is promise me bold
    That you won't let me grow dark or cold
    As long as we both shall live

    The sirens come, they always will
    But the dart between my heart and his
    Is as good as a diamond chain

    Rest in the bed of my bones
    All that I want is a home
    And all you can do is promise me bold
    That you won't let me grow dark or cold
    As long as we both shall live
