Original Song by Amber Lee Baker


I sit in my control booth
In my cyber-virtual-world
Some may say that I’m aloof
But inside this oyster is a pearl

I can be a card carrying cynic
I’m hardened and playing my part
Scheduled to the max every minute
But your laughter has warmed my heart

My modern day frown is turning upside-down…

‘Cause You Smile, and I Melt…

It’s back to the grind
A conditioned chill in the air
Seems like all my fantasies have run dry
And I don’t have time to care anymore

Work is always the same
And these four walls are such a bore
Being stuck inside is such a pain
But you know how to unlock my door

My modern day frown is turning upside-down…

You caught me so unaware
I was frozen inside from that computer glare
Like a burst of sun, between the clouds
I saw your face in the crowd
I couldn’t help but recognize
That playful look in you eyes
Before I knew it you cracked that grin
And my icy façade was caving in

‘Cause You Smile and I Melt…
