I'm throwing away pictures
That I never should have taken in the first place
And it's cold in my apartment
As I'm changing all the colors
From the brightest reds to grays

Well it's 3 o'clock on Monday morning
I'm just hoping you're not seeing his face
I've been getting calls in these hotel rooms
Long enough to know that it was him that took my place

And I hope this makes you happy now
That the flame we had is burning out
And I hope you like your pictures facing down
As even broken hearts may have their doubts

And I'm burning all the letters hoping
That I might forget her and the bad taste
That she laughed that she was leaving me
Alive but barely breathing
As she walked out of this place

And you dropped a note and we changed key
You changed yourself and I changed me
I really didn't see us singing through this
Then you screamed the bridge
And I cried the verse
And our chorus came out unrehearsed
And you smiled the whole way through it
I guess maybe that's what's worse

And I hope this makes you happy now
That the flame we had is burning out
And I hope you like your pictures facing down
As even broken hearts may have their doubts

And I'm taking all your memories off the shelf
Cause I don't need you or anybody else
So take a look at me
See what you want to see
When you get home

So take me home, I'd rather die than be with you
Take me home, you had a problem with the truth
Take me home, because this happens every time
And I knew it would, I knew it would

Take me home, I'd rather die than be with you
Take me home, you had a problem with the truth
Take me home because this happens every time
And I knew it would, I knew it would

And I hope this makes you happy now (whoa)
That the flame we had is burning out (whoa)
And I hope you like your pictures facing down (whoa)
As even broken hearts may have their doubts

And I'm taking all your memories off the shelf (whoa)
'Cause I don't need you with anybody else (whoa)
So take a look at me
See what you want to see
When you get home

    basically, he found out that she was cheating on him and he broke it off with her. then he is throwing away all the things that reminds him of her, because he is broken-hearted. After all of this, he would rather die than be with her. I think that this song is about Katie/derek's relationship and the aftermath... correct me if I am wrong,
