"The Remainder" as written by and Holt Marvell Jack Strachey....
The rhythm surrounds the room
You'll be sleeping soon
The radio plays its tune
You'll be dreaming
Take a match to that paper moon
And I'll set it alight
A bright nightlight for you

And I'll hold my body still
I'll hold against its will
And I'll hold my breath
Until I'm blue and I'm bruised
And you'll say this mind is ill
But sleep will come, it will
First let the truths lay real
And dreams will come back to you

'Cause the rocks they've thrown
Are all laid down
And the backs that turned
Are all turned back around
And your hands still warm
In my own at night
But your body's cold
Won't you warm it with mine?

And you cut my hair by moonlight
And I held my breath out of fright
As the locks fell loose by your side
And I had nowhere left to hide this pride

I'll bend my body 'til it breaks
And I'll bend these truths to make you space
And I'll bend my will 'til we find faith
And I'll bend and I'll break for you
For you, for you, for you
For you, for you, for you, for you
And all I'll bring you is love
