This song is by Young Galaxy and appears on the album Shapeshifting (2011).

If I could be lover or mother
Spheres and charms and aching arms
Holding and unfolding

I would be warmth and spring
A flooding creek and
Bells ringing, ringing, ringing
But I'm shapeshifting

Feathers push from my skin
I'm trickster again
Bird of prey has moved in me
Like a splinter

Despite myself I grow thinner
Guarding my nest through
The darkened winter, winter, winter
But I'm shapeshifting

Creature of change
It's me who unveins
A-choking on tethers and weather, no
Invading my veins
Replacing my name
Till I become you
And I'm shapeshifting
