No capo! Pretty song, and I think it's fairly close! Try the strumming pattern DDDUUDDDU
Key: *One downward strum
     ***Three quick downward strums

D G 2x

D              
I'm so glad you made time to see me
G  
How's life, tell me how's your family
Em                        D
I haven't seen them in a while
D
You've been good, busier than ever
G
We small talk, work and the weather
Em                           D
Your guard is up, and I know why
Em                    G                   D
Because the last time you saw me is still burned in the back of you mind
            Em           G                  D  
You gave me roses, and I left them there to die
D
So this is me swallowing my pride
            G                                      Em
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night
         D
And I go back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
G                                    Em
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
         D
And I go back to December 
                        Em
Turn around and make it alright
     D                G
I go back to December all the time

D G 2x

D
These days, I haven't been sleeping
G
Staying up playing back myself leaving
          Em                            D
When your birthday passed, and I didn't call
      D  
And I think about summer all the beautiful times
  G
I watched you laughing from the passenger side and
Em                          D
Realized I loved you in the fall
Em                      G                  D
And then the cold came, and dark days when fear crept into my mind
            Em                      G            D
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye
   D
So this is me swallowing my pride 
            G                                      Em
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night
         D
And I go back to December all the time
   D  
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you 
G                                    Em
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
         D
And I go back to December 
                          Em
Turn around and change my own mind
     D                G
I go back to December all the time

D G 2x
            Em             G
I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile
   D
So good to me, so right
            Em              G                   D
And how you held me in your arms that September night
                               Em***
The first time you ever saw me cry 
                               Em*** 
Maybe this is wishful thinking 

Probably mindless dreaming
Em*         G*                           D*                 
If we loved again, I swear I'd love you right
       Em*               G*                D*
I'd go back in time and change it, but I can't
          Em*               G*            D*
So if the chain is on your door, I understand
D (softly)       
So this is me swallowing my pride 
            G                                   Em   
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night
         D (normal speed)
And I go back to December
   D             
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you 
G                                    Em
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
D
I go back to December 
                        Em
Turn around and make it alright
     D                                          Em
I go back to December turn around and change my own mind
     D                G
I go back to December all the time

D G
        
All the time

D G
