Lyrics

I'm so glad you made time to see me
How's life? Tell me, how's your family?
I haven't seen them in a while

You've been good, busier than ever
We small talk: work and the weather
Your guard is up and I know why
Because the last time you saw me is still burned in the back of your mind
You gave me roses, and I left them here to die

So this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you saying
"I'm sorry for that night"
And I go back to December all the time

It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all right
I go back to December all the time

These days I haven't been sleeping
Staying up, playing back myself leaving
When your birthday passed and I didn't call

And I think about summer, all the beautiful times
I watched you laughing from the passenger side and
Realized I loved you in the fall

And then the cold came, the dark days
When fear crept into my mind
You gave me all your love
And all I gave you was, "Goodbye"

So this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you saying
"I'm sorry for that night"
And I go back to December all the time

It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
I go back to December all the time

I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile
So good to me, so right
And how you held me in your arms that September night
The first time you ever saw me cry

Maybe this is wishful thinking
Probably mindless dreaming
But if we loved again, I swear I'd love you right

I'd go back in time and change it, but I can't
So if the chain is on your door, I understand

But this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you saying
"I'm sorry for that night"
And I go back to December...

It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all right
I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
I go back to December all the time
All the time

    WOW! I shed some serious tears 4 this. Y'know, they said she wrote this after her breakup with Taylor Lautner. That's OK, Taylor; all of us have had heartbreak. [I had it REALLY bad!] Here's to getting over guys. Rock on, girl!
