about

If you like food AND want to support an amazing charity, you should definitely buy this album! Proceeds go to Lumos, an ogranization that helps institutionalized children.

I wrote this album while eating some of my favorite foods, and this is the result! I hope you enjoy it!

I LOVE writing songs, and these EPs are the result of a lot of 3AM songwriting sessions, which explains some of the more odd lyrics. I hope you like my music! ... more

Track Name: Pizza
Your hamster died, your old friends lied
Your favorite tv show got cancelled
You don't know where you belong
Forgot the words to your favorite song

Nobody understands your fandom references
They don't know how cool you are
You wanna make out with fictional characters
And not that creepy guy at the bar

CHORUS
If you're ever feeling blue
Pizza's there for you X2

You're up before noon, you have things to do
But you don't want to put on pants
Your best friend lives on the other
Side of the freaking ocean

When you're hungry but your fridge is empty
And your brother ate all your cookies
When you have no social life so you spend your days
Writing songs about food

CHORUS

BRIDGE
People get lonely, people get sad
You are not alone
Just eat a slice of pizza, you'll feel much better
It'll get you right back in the zone

CHORUS
Track Name: Pancakes
CHORUS
I love you more than I love food
I love you more than I love food
Except for pancakes, but those are really good

I looked at you that very first day
It felt like running into a free buffet
Eyes like blueberries, vanilla icecream smile
I stared at your deliciousness for quite a while

CHORUS

The more I got to know you the more layers I found
You're like a perfect cake, only a bit less round
I love that you don't hide who you truly are
Food coloring for you is as dumb as letting me drive a car

CHORUS

BRIDGE
If I would have to choose between you and desserts
What would I decide
If I would have to choose between you and desserts
I'd take that cupcake and take one last bite

CHORUS
I love you more than I love food
I love you more than I love food
Even more than pancakes and those are really good
Track Name: Cheeseburger
This story I'm about to tell is split up in two parts
I'll tell you about a boy I know so well, he does odd things to my heart
Part two of my tale is not as easy to explain, it takes my love so much further
People keep telling me it's bad for me but I just want to eat a cheeseburger

CHORUS
You're oh so good but oh so bad
You make me smile but I don't know if I should be scared X2

He's the kind of guy I love to hate, I really shouldn't find him cute
I keep hearing that I should stay away from him, and maybe cut back on the fast food
But I can't say no to my aching heart, can't tell my stomach to be quiet
I just want him to let down his guard, forget the meaning of the word diet

CHORUS

Hey look that girl is loving her burger, I'm glad food makes her so happy
She likes that guy? Oh, I wouldn't want to be her but it's not my life so I won't be nasty
This is what society should be saying instead of bringing each other down
Just let me fall in love with whoever I like and devour my burger to the very last bite

CHORUS
Track Name: Chocolate
I'm not eating chocolate cause I want to
I'm not eating chocolate cause it tastes so good
Stop saying I'm eating chocolate cause it's my favorite food
If you want to know why, come closer and I'll tell you

CHORUS
I'm eating chocolate because dementors want to suck my soul
They're chasing me, obtain my spirit is their one and only goal
I'm eating chocolate because dementors want to take control
They're chasing me, take me to Azkaban is their only goal X2

Chocolate is more than a work of art
That's mouth-watering delicious and enchantingly dark
Chocolate is needed for reasons bigger than that
Chocolate is necessary, it needs to be said

CHORUS

Muggles need to learn how to protect themselves
Against dementors with a trick I know so well
There's one thing you can do to escape from hell
Listen closely to this story, it might ringh a bell

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I never said that chocolate isn't the best thing that's ever been created
And I never said that chocolate isn't more amazing than any boy I've ever dated
The only message I wanna send with this song is that I don't eat chocolate cause I like it
I want it, I adore it, but I only consume it because it helps me to survive

CHORUS
Track Name: Potato
Potato, potato, oh beautiful potato
You're so much more delicious than a tomato
I like you when you're fried, I like you when you're baked
I like you when you're mashed, I like you every single way

Potato, potato, oh beautiful potato
You're so much more delicious than a tomato
There's a thousand ways to eat you, cooked, baked, or fried
Most of your wonderful forms I haven't even tried

Potato, potato, oh beautiful potato
You're so much more delicious than a tomato
Tomatoes are nice, but they don't compare to you
If you'd be Google, tomatoes are Yahoo

Potato, potato, oh beautiful potato
You're so much more delicious than a tomato
People say you're unhealthy, they declare you're not okay
I will never stop eating you, that's all I have to say

Potato, potato, oh beautiful potato
You're so much more delicious than a tomato
I like you when you're sliced, whole or made into chips
I can't look away, I simply can't resist

Potato, potato, oh beautiful potato
You're so much more delicious than a tomato
You're great in a salad or simply on your own
Each year, my appreciation for your flavor has grown

Potato, potato, oh beautiful potato
You're so much more delicious than a tomato
I could sing about your perfection all day long
But unfortunately, this is where I have to end this song
Track Name: Salt and Pepper
CHORUS
We're like salt and pepper, like apples in a pie
We belong together without knowing why
Were like a knife and a fork, were sweet and sour
This love is yours and mine, it's ours

Like cereal and milk, we're the perfect team
When I'm without you, I'm like coffee without cream
I need you like a salad needs a dressing
And you without me is like a cupcake without icing

CHORUS

You could be the chocolate chip to my cookie
You may be the chopsticks to my sushi
I could eat it with raisins, I could eat it with a fork
But, lets be honest, I'd look like a dork

CHORUS

You're one of my favorites,like schnitzel with noodles
I like you as much as I like eating apple strudel
I love that I know that you know me so well
I love that we go together like Nutella and....[talking] Well, anything basically. What doesn't go well with Nutella? Man,I love Nutella. Nutella with strawberries, on a slice of bread, or... Just a spoonful of Nutella. Oh man. Nutella is the best. Uhhh anyway

CHORUS

Break it down
[rapping]
We're bacon and eggs, icecream and a spoon
Everytime you look at me, you make me swoon
Martini and an olive, ham and cheese
You and food are the only things I need
I really shouldn't rap, it's as bad as the taste of sprouts
I'm gonna go back to singing, yo, I'm out

CHORUS
We're like salt and pepper, like apples in a pie
We belong together without knowing why
Were like a knife and a fork, were sweet and sour
This love is yours and mine, it's ours
