Athena, I had no idea how much I need her

Dii E A5 E

In peaceful times I hold her close and I feed her

Dii E A E

My heart starts palpitating when I think my guess was wrong

Dii E

But I think I'll get along

 

G D G D...(as above)

She's just a girl, she's a bomb

 

Athena, all I ever want to do is please her

My life has been so settled and she's the reason

Just one word from her and my troubles are long gone

But I think I'll get along

 

She's just a girl, she's a bomb

She's just a girl, she's a bomb

A D E E/D

Just a girl, just a girl

A D E E/D

Just a girl, just a girl

A D E E/D

Just a girl, just a girl

A D

She's just a girl

 

Athena, my heart felt like a shattered glass in an acid bath

I felt like one of those flattened ants you find on a crazy path

I'd have topped myself to give her time, she didn't need to ask

Was I a suicidal psychopath?

 

She's just a girl, she's a bomb

She's just a girl, she's a bomb

 

Consumed, there was a beautiful white horse I saw on a dream stage

He had a snake the size of a sewer pipe living in his ribcage

And I felt like a pickled priest who was being flambed

You've got me requisitioned blondie

 

She's just a girl, she's a bomb

She's just a girl, she's a bomb

 

Just a girl...

 

A/C# D

She's just a girl...

Look into the face of a child

D | E/D D | E/D D |

Measure how long you smiled before the memory claimed

E/D D | E/D D|E/D D | E/D D |

How long would children remain, how long could children remain?

 

Athena, you picked me up by my lapel and screamed leave her.

I felt like waking up in heaven on an empty meter

And now you're stuck with a castrated leader

And I hate the creep

 

I didn't mean that....

 

Athena, I had no idea how much I need her

My life has been so settled and she's the reason

Just one word from her and my troubles are long gone

But I think I'll get along

 

She's just a girl...
