Back To December



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.
'cause the last time you saw meIs still burned in the back of your mindYou gave me roses and I left them there to die.
So this is me swallowing my prideStanding 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 that I realized what I had when you were mine.I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all rightI go back to December all the time.
These days I haven't been sleepingStaying up playing back myself leavin'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.Realized that I loved you in the fall
Then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mindYou gave me all your love and all I gave you was "Goodbye"
So this is me swallowing my prideStanding 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 that I realized what I had when you were mine.I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mindI go back to December all the time.
I miss your tanned skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so rightAnd how you held me in your arms that September nightThe first time you ever saw me cry
Maybe this is wishful thinking,Probably mindless dreaming,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 prideStanding 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 that I'd realize 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'd go back to December all the time.All the time
