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 you won't mind if I say
And 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
You're just another picture to burn
Baby, burn...

    I love this song I think it means girls are interdependent and they should express their feelings and you should treat every one the same!!

    I luv this song so much, she's got a great voice. This is such a "girl power" song! Ha, I bet her ex boyfriend just got burned when he heard this song! Go Taylor!

    date nice boys

    it says it in the lyrics book that comes with the cd
    it's in capitol letters when the others are in lower case
    that's taylor's view of the song

    my meaning is so obvious... he broke up with her- never let her drive the pickup truck... got together with another girl... let her drive the pickup truck... it's time for revenge!
    well that's my meaning- ya better like it! ~toodles~
