I'm so glad you made time to see me.
A
How's life, tell me how's your family?
Em
G
A
I haven't seen them in a while.
D
You've been good, busier than ever.
A
Small talk, work and the weather
Em
G
A
Your guard is up and I know why.
Em
G
Cause the last time you saw me
D
Em
Is still burned in the back of your mind.
G
A
Em
G
You gave me roses and I left them there to die.
D
So this is me swallowing my pride,
A
Em
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night,
G
A
And I go back to December all the time.
D
Turns out freedom aint nothing but missing you,
A
Em
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.
G
A
Em
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all right.
G
A
D
I go back to December all the time.
D A Em G
D
These days I haven't been sleeping
A
Staying up playing back myself leaving,
Em
G
A
When your birthday passed and I didn't call.
D
And I think about summer, all the beautiful times
A

I watched you laughing from the passenger side


Em
G
A
Realized that I loved you in the fall.
Em
G
D
Em
Then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind.
G
A
Em
G
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye.
D
So this is me swallowing my pride,
A
Em
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night,
G
A
And I go back to December all the time.
D
Turns out freedom aint nothing but missing you,
A
Em
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.

I'd go back to December turn around and change my own mind.

D A Em G
Em
G
D
A
I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right,
Em
G
D
And how you held me in your arms that September night,
A
Em
The first time you ever saw me cry.
G
Maybe this is wishful thinking,
D
A
Probably mindless dreaming
Em
G
A
If we loved again I swear I'd love you right.
D
A
Em
I'd go back in time and change it but I can't
G
A
Em
So if the chain is on your door, I understand.
D
But this is me swallowing my pride,
A
Em
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night,
G
A
And I go back to December
D
It turns out freedom aint nothing but missing you,
A
Em
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.

Got lost in your eyes
