She like the boys with the black hearts.
She got an eye ta match.
Tattoo on her neck says,
"Burn bright and fast!"

She's a star, man.
Just ask her.
Light you up and take you down in flames.
Tell the truth, I'm still laughing.
But maybe she's your thing.

She comes late if she comes at all.
Don't you know her name?
Picture on the bathroom wall.
Jones' hall of fame!

    My InterpretationShe like the boys with the black hearts.
    Self-explanatory: She likes bad guys.

    She got an eye ta match.
    She has a black eye; implies that she gets stuck on guys who treat her like dirt, even hitting her.

    Tattoo on her neck says,
    "Burn bright and fast!"
    She'd rather live life hard and fast and exciting, rather than giving it meaning if it means living more gently.

    She comes late if she comes at all.
    Doesn't keep promises, doesn't commit.

    Don't you know her name?
    Maybe implying that she's not even that close to the people she sees?

    Picture on the bathroom wall.
    Jones' hall of fame!
    She's known among the bad guys as a go-to girl, a girl to use.

    She's a star, man.
    Just ask her.
    Light you up and take you down in flames.
    Goes back to the "burn bright and fast" line. Also implies that she'll be good to you (light you up) or tear you down (take you down in flames) depending on how you're treating her.

    Tell the truth, I'm still laughing.
    Don't take her seriously, because she's just some girl to be used?

    But maybe she's your thing.
    You can take her, I don't want her.
