The Liz O Show San Francisco, California

Fiesty, fiery, sassy, sweet, with the guitar riffs of an old soul bluesman and the confidence of a pop star, with lyrics as full of stories as Joni Mitchell's, and flamboyance to rival Janis Joplin's, and a world that is a colorful, surreal children's playroom come to life, Liz O is a rising force in San Francisco.

It's a party that doesn't stop, and the whole world is invited to the show!

Track Name: Sweet Tangerine
Sweet Tangerine,
carrying kerosene,
why do you put yourself out?

Dark crimson hair,
wondering why and where
wondering what you're about

He called with the writing on the wall
saying nothing's going to change
oh, woe is you
what did you buy into,
why did you get in the game?

Why can't life be dreams
fearless and fancy free
why is love so unkind?

You are so good in bed
when you are in my head
when we are out of our minds

The bright sun says another day's begun
time to pick myself up
coffee, chanting, gin

Suck me dry as I'm trying to get high
and I'm losing hold of the reins
Roll in one more time
All I can do -
is try and try again...
Track Name: Golden Gate
In the garden
Are words that I have yet to write
I hear them knocking
On my head at night

Where she is waiting
With commands that only I can hear
My tongue is frozen as she speaks the shadows
In my ear

And leaves me paralyzed...

Until the serpent
Slithers down my spine again
And leads me farther
From you my friend

Into darkness and a destination
I can't see...
So if I spiral somewhere
Deep inside and out of reach

I apologize...

I know this life is only dreams,
So when I'm lost in my belief
I hope you
Will forgive me

I've asked the spirits
To lead me on my way
Through the labyrinth
To that golden gate...

The sky is light
But rain is heavy in the atmosphere
I hear the thunder, I know that now the storm is near
And I am ready

As lightning strikes the castle walls
And in the smoke the tower falls
I see her... I hear her call

She calls...
And we walk, we walk
