Take Another Picture - Bishop Allen
Take another picture with your click, click, click, click, camera / Sure, I've got pictures of my own / Of the people and places that I've known

Butterfly - Corinne Bailey Rae
In my mother's house
/ There's a photograph / Of a day gone past / Always makes me laugh / There's a little girl / Wary of the world / She got much to learn

Kamera - Wilco
I need a camera to my eye / To my eye, reminding / Which lies I have been hiding / Which echoes belong / I've counted out days / To see how far / I've driven in the dark / With echoes in my heart

Picture to Burn - Taylor Swift

So watch me strike a match / On all my wasted time / As far as I'm concerned / You're just another picture to burn

Picture Book - The Kinks
Picture yourself when you're getting old / Sat by the fireside a-pondering on /
Picture book, pictures of your mama / Taken by your papa a long time ago / Picture book / Of people with each other / To prove they love each other a long ago

In Pictures - Alabama
I've got her photograph on a stand by my bed / Two on the mantle and thousands in my head / I can't believe how fast she's growing /
It ain't supposed to be like this / Every time I look at her / I see how much I missed

Bookends - Simon and Garfunkel
Time is was, and what a time it was / A time of innocence, a time of confidences / Long ago, it must be / I have a photograph / Preserve your memories / They're all thats left of you

Photograph - Ed Sheeran
We keep this love in a photograph / We made these memories for ourselves

In Color - Jamey Johnson

I said grandpa what's this picture here / It's all black and white… / A pictures worth a thousand words / But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered / You should have seen it in color

A Picture of Me Without You - George Jones
Imagine a world where no music was playing / Then think of a church with nobody praying / If you ever looked up at a sky with no blue / Then you've seen a picture of me without you

Bad Self Portraits - Lake Street Dive

I bought this camera / To take pictures of my love / Now that he's gone / I don't have anybody to take pictures of

Photographs and Memories - Jim Croce
Photographs and memories / All the love you gave to me / Somehow it just can't be true /
That's all I've left of you

Take a Picture - Carly Rae Jepsen
Pucker up in sunglasses / Making love to the flashes / Posing the way that we do for everybody to see / Polaroid through your lashes / The only thing that will last is / I take a picture of you taking a picture of me

Picture This - Blondie
All I want is a photo in my wallet / A small remembrance of something more solid / All I want is a picture of you

Picture - Sheyl Crow & Kid Rock
I put your picture away / Sat down and cried today / I can't look at you / While I'm lying next to her

Story of a Girl - 3 Doors Down
This is the story of a girl / Who cried a river and drowned the whole world / And while she looked so sad in photographs / I absolutely love her / When she smiles

F-Stop Blues - Jack Johnson
And now he has cutaways from memories / And close-ups of anything that / He has seen or even dreamed / And now he's finished focusing

Photograph - Michael Stipe and Natalie Merchant
I found this photograph / Underneath the picture glass / Tender face of black and white / Beautiful, a haunting sight

Camera Shy - The Locksmiths
So if it's not too much to ask / Let's just let the moment pass / I have no wish to be reminded / Of just how awkward I can be / Please don't point that thing at me

#Selfie - The Chainsmokers
What should my caption be? / I want it to be clever / I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes / Do you think I should take it down / Let me take another selfie

He Ya - Outkast
Shake it / Shake it / Shake it like a Polaroid picture
