Athena, I had no idea how much I'd need her
In peaceful times I hold her close and I feed her
My heart starts palpitating when I think my guess was wrong
But I think I'll get along

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

Athena, all I ever wanna 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 a bomb

Just a girl, just a girl
Just a girl, just a girl
Just a girl, just a girl
She's just a girl

Athena, my heart felt like a shattered glass in an acid bath
Felt like one of those flattened ants you find on a crazy path
I'd of 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 rib cage
I felt like a pickled priest who was being flambed
You were requisitioned Blondie

She's just a girl, she's a bomb
I'm happy, she's a bomb, I'm ecstatic

Just a girl, just a girl
Just a girl, just a girl
Just a girl, just a girl
She's just a girl

Look into the face of a child, measure how long you smiled
Before the memory claimed
How long would children remain
How long could children remain

Athena, if you picked me up by my lapels and screamed, "Leave her"
It 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

She's a bomb
I just said it
She's a bomb
I didn't mean it, please
She's a bomb

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 get along

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