A[A5]then[E]a, [Dii]I had no i[E]dea how much I [A5]need her[E]
In [Dii]peaceful times I [E]hold her close and I [A5]feed her[E]
My [Dii]heart starts palpitat[E]ing when I think my g[A]uess was wrong[E]
But I think I'll [Dii]get along[E]
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
[E5]  
Just a [A]girl, just a [D]gir[E]l[E/D]
Just a [A]girl, just a [D]gir[E]l[E/D]
Just a [A]girl, just a [D]gir[E]l[E/D]
She's just a [A]girl[D]
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...
She's just a [A/C#]girl..[D].

[Dmaj9]Look into the [D]face of a [Dmaj7]child
Measure [D]how long you [E/D]smiled before the [D]memory [E/D]claimed[D]
[E/D]How long would [D]children re[E/D]main[D], [E/D]how long could [D]children re[E/D]main?[D]
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...
