Picture to Burn (2:53)

Cover of Taylor Swift

From Taylor Swift and 5 other releases

“Picture to Burn” is the title of a single co-written and recorded by American country pop artist Taylor Swift. Released in January 29, 2008[1] as the fourth single from Swift’s self-titled debut album, it is also that album’s fourth consecutive Top Ten hit, having reached a peak of #3 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.

The song is part of the tracklist for Now That’s What I Call Country.

The lyrics describe Taylor’s dissatisfaction with her ex-boyfriend (whom she describes as “just another picture to burn”), and her plans to seek revenge on him. The official single release contains the radio edit which replaces the line “That’s fine, I’ll tell mine that you’re gay” with “That’s fine, you won’t mind if I say”. This version was used on the March 2008 re-release. Similar to Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” music video.

    can't stand her but love this song. I change the lyrics to make it fit about my father so it's perfect for Father's Day (esp since my father always drove a truck)

    Kissing is healthy. -Bananas are good for cramps.-Chicken soup actually makes you feel better. -Its true. Guys DO insult you if they like you. -Having someone rub your tummy when it hurts actually helps it. -89% of guys would want girls to make the first move. -Girls love it when Guys hug them from behind the waist.-Chocolate makes you feel better. -Girls love it when guys let them wear their hoodie or jacket. -Guys think its cute when you mess up. -A true friend will NEVER judge you. -There is only one guy who is worth your tears. -If you have a dream about someone, then that person went to sleep thinking about you. -More guys...than girls will read this.Everyone likes surprises. * Now make a wish. Wish really hard! Wish before reading on.You wish will be received tomorrow. Your wish will only come true if you forward this to at least ten people. If you post this on at least 10 pages (comments, status, etc.) your wish will come
