about

Kip came up with the chorus “I just want to love you, but I can’t afford to love you”. It immediately made me think of the dance of lust and power…..in this case a woman’s power over someone globally powerful. I thought of it as “what a fly on the wall might have heard during the General Petraeus & Paula Broadwell affair”. Maybe they thought as long as no one knew, what was the harm? And they were probably also seduced by the secrecy of it all. Maybe they thought they were invincible? When finally exposed, I think they probably felt like Felix Baumgartner falling from space.

lyrics

I just want to love you
But I can't afford to love you

As I'm opening up my dress
Your eyes on an epic journey
I welcome you into my nest
You can't keep your self from

I just want to love you
But I can't afford to love you

You're having a modicum of success
Hands navigating blindly
Your heart is galloping from your chest
A leaping Felix in the stratosphere

Say, why torture all this longing
With guilt not pleasure
You may have someone else I know
But guaranteed, I can make you feel

You never will elude me
You must surrende…to me…to me

You never will elude me
You must surrender to me...to me

I just want to love you
But I can't afford to love you
I just want to love you
But I can't afford to love you

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
