[Intro]
D A Em G

[Verse]
D
I'm so glad you made time to see me.
A
How's life, tell me how's your family?
Em        G             D     A
I haven't seen them in a while.
D
You've been good, busier then ever.
A
Small talk, work and the weather
Em        G             D     A
Your guard is up and I know why.
Em                  G
Cause the last time you saw me
         D                          G
Is still burned in the back of your mind.
            D           A                  Em   G
You gave me roses and I left them there to die.

[Chorus]
   D
So this is me swallowing my pride,
            A                                      Em
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night,
         G                A
And I go back to December all the time.
D
Turns out freedom aint nothing but missing you,
A                                       Em
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.
       G                 A                           Em
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all right.
     G                A       
I go back to December all the time.

[Instrumental]
D A Em G

[Verse]
D
These days I haven't been sleeping
A
Staying up playing back myself leaving,
Em                   G                D     A
When your birthday passed and I didn't call.
D
And I think about summer, all the beautiful times
A
I watched you laughing from the passenger side
Em               G              D    A
Realized that I loved you in the fall.
Em                  G                  D                  G
Then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind.
            D                 A                  Em      G
You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye.

[Chorus]
   D
So this is me swallowing my pride,
            A                                      Em
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night,
         G                A
And I go back to December all the time.
D
Turns out freedom aint nothing but missing you,
A                                       Em
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.
       G                A                         Em
I'd go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
     G                A       
I go back to December all the time.

[Instrumental]
D A Em G

[Bridge]
            Em             G               D              A
I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right,
            Em               G                    D
And how you held me in your arms that September night,
                   A           Em
The first time you ever saw me cry.
              G
Maybe this is wishful thinking,
D        A
Probably mindless dreaming
Em          G                          A
If we loved again I swear I'd love you right.
       D                A               Em
I'd go back in time and change it but I can't
          D                A       G
So if the chain is on your door, I understand.

[Chorus]
    D
But this is me swallowing my pride,
            A                                      Em
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night,
         G                A
And I go back to December
   D
It turns out freedom aint nothing but missing you,
A                                       Em
Wishing that I realized what I had when you were mine.
       G                 A                         Em
I'd go back to December turn around and make it alright.
       G                A                             Em
I'd go back to December turn around and change my own mind.
       D               A            
I go back to December all the time.

[Outro]
G D Em A
         G D    
All the time
Em A      D

okay so this is very good, but if you have a capo, i suggest using it and having it on the 2nd fret :) it makes it sound a little better

Really good. But I swapped G for D in the first verse.
