About Kerosene

"Kerosene" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Miranda Lambert. It was released in September 2005 as the third single and title-track to her debut album of the same name. The song is about a break-up, where the narrator has enough with her boyfriend and starts burning his stuff with kerosene. It reached number 15 on the Hot Country Songs charts, becoming Lambert's first Top 20 country hit. It also peaked at number 61 on the U. S. Billboard Hot 100. The working title of the song was "Kerosene (Love's Givin' Up on Me)". The accompanying music video for the song, directed by Trey Fanjoy, shows Lambert carrying a tin of kerosene and emptying out as a trail on the countryside that leads back to her ex-boyfriend's house, igniting the trail so the house burns down as well. The song was Lambert's first to be certified Gold by the RIAA on March 6, 2006. It also gave Lambert her first Grammy nomination for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

I'm waitin' on the sun to set cause yesterday ain't over yet
I started smoking cigarettes there's nothing else to do I guess
Dusty roads ain't made for walking, spinning tires ain't made for stoppin'
I'm giving up on love cause love's given up on me

I gave it everything I had and everything I got was bad
Life ain't hard but it's too long to live it like some country song
Trade the truth in for a lie, cheating really ain't a crime
I'm giving up on love cause love's given up on me

Forget you high society, I'm soakin' it in Kereosne
Light 'em up and watch them burn, teach them what they need to learn HA!
Dirty hands ain't made for shakin', ain't a rule that ain't worth breakin'
Well I'm giving up on love cause love's given up on me

Now I hate the one who left 
But you can't hate someone that's dead
He's holding on to someone, I'm holding up a smoking gun
I'll find somewhere to lay my blame the day she changes her last name
Well I'm giving up on love cause love's given up on me
Well I'm giving up on love hey love's given up on me
