Waitress the Musical - What Baking Can Do Lyrics

"What Baking Can Do" is a song from the musical "Waitress" performed by Jessie Mueller (Jenna). Music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles.

Make it work
Make it easy
Make it clever, craft it into pieces
Make it sweet
Crimp the edges
Or make it sour and serve with lemon wedges
Even doubt
Can be delicious
And it washes off of all the dirty dishes
When it's done
I can smile
It's on someone else's plate for a while

I'll place it on display
And then I'll slice and serve my worries away

I can fix this
I can twist it into sugar, butter covered pieces
Never mind what's underneath it
I have done it before
I'll bake me a door to help me get through
I learned that from you
Mama, it's amazing what baking can do

Make it up
And surprise them
Tell them all my secrets but disguise them
So they dance on the tongue
Of the very people that they're secrets from
Make it soon
Make it better
Though, better never lasts forever
I'll make it small so it fits . . . .

Even this . . .
Even now . . .
Even as the walls come tumbling down
Even as I can't stop remembering how
Every door we ever made, we never once walked out
Something I never got the chance to ask her about

So with flour on my hands
I'll show them all how
Goddamn happy I am
Sugar, butter, flour
Don't let me down!
Let's see the next amazing thing baking does now

What's Inside
Opening Up
The Negative
What Baking Can Do
Club Knocked Up
When He Sees Me
It Only Takes a Taste
You Will Still Be Mine
A Soft Place to Land
Never Ever Getting Rid of Me
Bad Idea
I Didn't Plan It
Bad Idea (Reprise)
You Matter to Me
I Love You Like a Table
Take It from an Old Man
She Used to Be Mine
Everything Changes
