When sky blue gets dark enough
To see the colors of the city lights
A trail of ruby red and diamond white
Hits her like a sunrise


She comes and goes and comes and goes
Like no one can


Tonight she's out to lose herself
And find a high on Peachtree Street
From mixed drinks to techno beats it's always
Heavy into everything


She comes and goes and comes and goes
Like no one can
She comes and goes and no one knows
She's slipping through my hands


She's always buzzing just like
Neon, neon
Neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns away


I can't be her angel now
You know it's not my place to hold her down
And it's hard for me to take a stand
When I would take her anyway I can


She comes and she goes
Like no one can
She comes and she goes
She's slipping through my hands


She's always buzzing just like
Neon, neon
Neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns away, away.


She comes and she goes
Like no one can
She comes and she goes
She's slipping through my hands


She's always buzzing just like
Neon, neon
Neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns away

    It's about a girl who live a wild life and john mayer (or who ever) realizes he can't do anything about it, except watch her waste her life.

    It's about this girl who's always up late partying and nothing can stop her. Shell take you or leave you (comes and goes) it doesn't matter to her though. She'll go out anyway.

    I just think this song is just about a boy thinking a girl is just so energetic and full of life and energy because she's "always buzzing like neon". I guess you could also say she's always wide awake and ready!
