[Verse 1]
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 me
Still burned in the back of your mind
You gave me roses and I left them there to die


[Chorus]
So this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night

And I'd go back to December all the time
It turns out freedom aren’t nothing but missing you
Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine

I'd go back to December, turn around and make it alright
I go back to December all the time

[Verse 2]
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


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

It turns out freedom aren’t nothing but missing you
Wishing that 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


[Verse 3]
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

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


[Chorus]
But this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night

And I'd go back to December
It turns out freedom aren’t nothing but missing you

Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine and
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright and
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind and
I go back to December all the time
