I was younger than her
With no nihilistic urges to speak of
But she saw something in me
I guess it might’ve been my innocence

She sat by me in history class
I was familiar with her pheromones
And when she put her glasses on
My heart went boom boom boom

Oddeline, I fell so hard

Oddeline had a rebellious streak
She had a buzz cut dyed bright green
And down the sides of her ripped up jeans there must’ve been
A thousand safety pins

She wore mesh tank tops
And on the back of her jacket was The Exploited
Her favourite boots were army boots
With hot pink laces

Oddeline, I fell so hard

Maybe it was lust that drove me to say
“Oddeline, your skull is perfect…”
And when she smiled I knew
My life was about to change

Oddeline, Oddeline, Oddeline
