[Intro]
G#  G#  Fm  C#  2x


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


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


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


[Interlude]
G#  G#  Fm  C#  2x




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


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


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


[Interlude]
G#  G#  Fm  C#  Fm  2x


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

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

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


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


[Outro]
     Fm                D#                         C#
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
       Fm~                 D#~
I go back to December all the time
