"Picture to Burn" as written by Liz Rose and Taylor Swift....
State the obvious
I didn't get my perfect fantasy
I realize you love yourself more than you could ever love me
So go and tell your friends that I'm obsessive and crazy
That's fine!
I'll tell mine
You're gay
By the way

I hate that
Stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive
You're a redneck heartbreak
Who's really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I'm concerned you're
Just another picture to burn

There's no time for tears
I'm just sitting here
Planning my revenge
There's nothing stopping me
From going out with all of your best friends
And if you come around saying sorry to me
My daddy's gonna show you how sorry you'll be

'Cause I hate that
Stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive
You're a redneck heartbreak
Who's really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I'm concerned you're
Just another picture to burn

If you're missing me
You'd better keep it to yourself
'Cause coming back around here
Would be bad for your health

'Cause I hate that
Stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive

You're a redneck heartbreak
Who's really bad at lying

So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
In case you haven't heard

I really really hate that
Stupid old pickup truck
You never let me drive
You're a redneck heartbreak
Who's really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match
On all my wasted time
As far as I'm concerned you're
Just another picture to burn

Burn, burn, burn, baby, burn
Just another picture to burn
Baby, burn

    General CommentI've never had or asked or kept a picture of an ex,even when in the relationship. So this song seems redundant and quite strange to me...

    General CommentI love love love this song.
    It definately makes me feel better about not being with my ex-boyfriend and it totally describes him. When I want to be mad I listen to this instead of "TimMcGraw." And it's so true, I hate that stupid Chevy Silverado that he NEVER let me drive....

    General CommentIt seems as though she was in love with the fantasy, not the guy with the pickup truck 'you never let me drive'. The woman is obviously really messed up. Lyrical genius; Taylor Swift is great.

    General CommentI thought the line was "You're a redneck heartbreak, who's really bad at lying"?
    Could be wrong though.
