Intro: C Am F x2

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


Pre-Chorus:
Am                   G
Because the last time you saw me
           C                          F
It's 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 
            G
Standing in front of you saying 
                    F
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
C                G              
Back to December all the time
   C
It turns out freedom made, Nothing but missing you
G     
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     F
When you were mine 
       C
I'd go back to December, 
G                           F 
Turn around and make it all right
     Am               G          
I go back to December all the time


C  Am F x2


Verse:
C                         
These days I haven't been sleeping
Am
Stayin' 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 watch 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                   
You gave me all your love and
      G           F
All I gave you was goodbye


Chorus:
  C
So this is me swallowing my pride 
            G
Standing in front of you saying 
                    F
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
C                G              
Back to December all the time
   C
It turns out freedom made, Nothing but missing you
G     
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     F
When you were mine 
       C
I'd go back to December, 
G                           F 
Turn around and make it all right
     Am               G          
I go back to December all the time


C  Am F x2

Bridge: 
            Am            F 
I miss your tan skin your sweet smile
   C              G
So good to me, so right
            Am              F
And how you held me in your arms
               C
That September night
                   G           Am  
The first time you ever saw me cry
                              F
Maybe this is wishful thinking
                          C
Probably mindless dreaming
                                        G
If you loved again I swear I'd love you right

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

Chorus:
    C
But this is me swallowing my pride 
            G                            
Standing in front of you saying 
                    F
"I'm sorry for that night" and I go 
C              G
Back to December...
   C  
It turns out freedom made, Nothing but missing you
Am                             
Wishing I'd realized what I had 
     F  
When you were mine 
       C  
I'd go back to December 
G                           F                           
Turn around and make it all right
       C        
I'd go back to December
G                             F
Turn around and change my own mind
     C                        G        
I go back to December all the time

C Am F x2
