about

My friend Casey Collins had been staying with my family and me for a few weeks, helping out with vocal production on the album. My husband and I had been doing the typical dance of a couple raising a child, running a home, and trying to figure out if we were going to try to have our second child after many past attempts.

Casey was witnessing our dynamic and also observing me in all of my different roles - as a mom, a wife, a friend, volunteering at my daughters school, doing my best to take care of myself, trying to revive my music career, and all the struggles associated with daily life.

He pulled me aside one day and said, “Liza, you need to write a song about being a woman in the world”…”You need to share your experience of the karmic juggle that so many women experience”, and I think we pretty much nailed it.

lyrics

Between the Heart and hands it takes to love a man
A woman understands
Between her heart and soul, you know it takes a toll
When she’s all alone
Between the day and night, between the wrong & right
A woman’s arms are warm
Between the give and take, you know she lies awake
Singin’ a silent song

When the phone rings / you know I’m always home
I’m a sister, daughter, mother, lover
And I’m always on
When the doorbell rings, you know I’ve been on my own
I’m a sister, daughter, mother, lover
And I’m always yours

So when you’re here with me
I need you to really be
And when you’re here with me
I need you to look at me
When you’re here with me
I need you to really see
Sow a little love in me
I can build a family tree
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh – uh!
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh – uh!

A man’s got his mind on the bottom line
It takes a lot of time to bring the dollar signs
A woman keeps the pace; she goes place to place
It takes a lot of grace, to wear so many faces

When the phone rings / you know I’m always home
I’m a sister, daughter, mother, lover
And I’m always on
When the doorbell rings, you know I’ve been on my own
I’m a sister, daughter, mother, lover
And I’m always yours

So when you’re here with me
I need you to really be
And when you’re here with me
I need you to look at me
When you’re here with me
I need you to really see
Sow a little love in me
I can build a family tree
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh – uh!
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh – uh!

about

piKziL Denver, Colorado

piKziL is the musical creation of Liza Oxnard and Kip Kuepper. Long-time collaborators, the two describe their music as somewhere between slanky electro-lounge and jazz nouveaux, with a little bit of scenester grit thrown in. piKziL is a warm and primordial roux, a hot tango between Astrud Gilberto and Debbie Harry. The music is cinematic, evocative, funky, and inexplicably sentimental. ... more
