[Intro]
C  C  Am  F  2x


[Verse]
C
 I'm so glad you made time to see me
Am
 How's life, tell me how's your family
F                         C  G
 I haven't seem them in a while
C
 You've been good, busier than ever
Am
 We small talk, work and the weather
F                            C  G
 Your guard is up and I know why


[Pre-Chorus]
Am                  G
 Because the last time you saw me
             C                      F
Is still burned in the back of your mind
            Am          G                  F
You gave me roses and I left them there to die


[Chorus]
   C
So this is me swallowing my pride
            Em                                      F
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night
         C                G
And I go back to December all the time
    C
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Em                                   F
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
     C                 G                        F
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright
     Am               G
I go back to December all the time


[Interlude]
C  C  Am  F  2x


[Verse]
C
 These days I haven't been sleeping
Am
Staying up playing back myself leaving
F                                       C  G
 When your birthday passed and I didn't call
       C
Then I think about summer, all the beautiful times
  Am
I watched you laughing from the passenger side
   F                            C  G
And realized I loved you in the fall


[Pre-Chorus]
Am                      G
 And then the cold came, the dark days
     C                  F
When fear crept into my mind
            Am                      G           F
You gave me all your love And all I gave you was goodbye


[Chorus]
   C
So this is me swallowing my pride
            Em                                      F
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night
         C                G
And I go back to December all the time
   C
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Em                                   F
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
     C                 G                         F
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
     Am               G
I go back to December all the time


[Interlude]
C  C  Am  F  Am  2x


[Bridge]
            Am                F
I miss your tan skin and your sweet smile
   C              G
So good to me, so right
            Am              F                   C
And how you held me in your arms that September night
                   G           Am
The first time you ever saw me cry

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

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


[Chorus]
     C
But this is me swallowing my pride
            Em                                      F
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night
         C             G
And I go back to December
   C
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Em                                   F
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
     C                 G                        F
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright


[Outro]
     Am                G                         F
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
       Am~                 G~
I go back to December all the time
