Track Name: Shapeshifter
shapeshifter
. . . . . . . . . . . .

it's been a while and you're not the same
though you have the same face - have the same name

. . . CHORUS . . .
you’re a like a snake shedding your skin
when it gets too small - when it gets too thin
you're a shapeshifter - I am one too

and over time you have changed too
dyed your hair pink then dyed it blue

i’m like a snake shedding my skin
when it gets too small - when it gets too thin
I'm a shapeshifter - I thought you knew

. . . BRIDGE . . .
sometimes we are mice and cats
other times we are gloves and hats

sometimes we couldn't be less alike
other times we'll ride a tandem bike

sometimes I am plaid and you are paisley
sometimes I like the way we clash
sometimes it drives me crazy

what shape is life?
what shape are you?

what shape are we?
what shape is true?

we are opposites
we are the same

we come and go
and we always change

we are like snakes shedding our skins
when they get too small - when they get too thin
we are shapeshifters - you know it's true
Track Name: Junk in Love
junk in love
. . . . . . . . . . . .

found you in a junk shop
in a heap of old tin pots

you’re my treasure, are you not?
i love your tarnished spots  (ooooooo)

i don’t know what you used to be
but now you’re everything to me

i took you home and cleaned you up
just took off a little dust

made sure not to take too much
left your history in rust

i don’t know what you used to be
but now you’re everything to me

how did i get along before
i carried you through my door?

i took you up into my room
you chased the shadows from the gloom (oooooooo)

i don’t know what you used to be
but now you’re everything to me

looking around here you’d think
she’s got everything

i’d give it all up
cuz i love you so much

i don’t know what you used to be
but now you’re everything to me
Track Name: Bayou Mermaid
bayou mermaid
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

viens . . . viens . . .

they will call you
to the bayou

by your name
they will call you

you won't wonder
how they know you

in the bayou

You will see them
in the bayou

you will know them
as they call you

shadows on the water
of the bayou

in the bayou

they have hair of spanish moss
to tangle you

you won't fear them
you will feel their love is true

they will hold you there
and like them you will grow roots

in the bayou
Track Name: Je M'en Fous
je m’en fous
. . . . . . . . . . .

je m’en fous
c’est rien de tout

walkin’ down the street
plaid socks pulled up to my knees

yes, i may be looking fine
but you don’t want to tell me

je m’en fous
c’est rien de tout

i have walked a lot of miles
don’t you dare tell me to smile

oooo he didn’t
uh huh

je m’en fous
c’est rien de tout

you say it’s compliment
i say you should GET A GRIP

you’re not trying to be nice
it’s just a POWER TRIP
cause if i don’t play along you’ll call me a . . .

JE M’EN FOUS
c’est rien de tout

if you wanna talk to us
while we’re waiting for the bus

you can ask but be polite
and don’t expect us to be nice

i was taught a should be kind
so i was the first a THOUSAND times

don’t make the proposition
if you can’t take rejection

I DON’T OWE YOU
CAUSE I DON’T KNOW YOU

we are sisters boekbinder
you can dance but don’t grind her

unless you ask permission first
and if you don’t we’ll make you hurt

JE M’EN FOUS
c’est rien de tout
