lyrics

you are the heartbeat of this office
but you're a cypher, you're a code
no one knows your real name
no one can count what you are owed

but i remember your first day
you were all energy and nerves
you fit in like you're family
you were here to serve

and all those miles of red tape
you cut through them with aplomb
but maybe it wasn't such a good idea
to come in today with that bomb...

no one knew you were unhappy
oh you never said a word
you were on the phones all day
always speaking, never heard

you would flash us that smiley smile
and it would brighten up our day
& you would brew the best cup of joe
& you would send us on our way

oh you handled those suits
like the piper with his song
but maybe it wasn't such a good idea
to come in today with that bomb...

no one ever brought you flowers
no trinkets, cakes or cards
no one ever said a simple thanks
for all these years of working hard

you are the heartbeat of this office
but you're a cypher, you're a code
no one knows your real name
no one can count what you are owed

but now is not the time for blaming
now it's time for calm
maybe we could talk some more about it
right after you diffuse that -
