[Intro]
C F x2

[Verse 1]

C
I'm so glad you made 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'll small talk, working the weather 
F                            C G
Your guard is up and I know why 


[Pre-Chorus]

Am                 G
Cause the last time you saw me 
             C                       F
Is still burned in the back of your mind 
            Am            G             F
You gave me roses and I left them there to die 


[Chorus]

    C                                           G
So this is me swallowing my pride, standing in front of you 
                           F
Saying I'm sorry for that night 
         Am                G
And I go back to December all the time 
    C                                    
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you   


[Post-Chorus]
 
G                                    F                                      
Wishing I realized what I had when you were  mine                                                
     Am                  G                      F
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright 
     Am               G
I go back to December all the time 

C F x2


[Verse 2]

C                              
These days I haven't been sleeping 
Am
Staying 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 watched you laughing from the passenger side 
F                                C G
And realized I loved you in the fall


[Pre-Chorus]

Am                     G 
And when the cold came, the dark days 
C                      F
When fear crept into my mind 
           Am 
You gave me all your love 
          G              F
and all I gave you was goodbye 


[Chorus]

C                                                G
So this is me swallowing my pride, standing in front of you 
                          F
Saying I'm sorry for that night 
         Am                   G
And I go back to December all the time 
C                                        
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you 
G                                           F
Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine


[Post-Chorus]

       Am             G                           F
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind 
     Am               G
I go back to December all the time 

C F x2


[Bridge]

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

Maybe this is wishful thinking
F 
Probably mindless dreaming 
C                                           G
But if we 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 


[Interlude]

     C                                           G
But this is me swallowing my pride, standing in front of you 
                            F
Saying I'm sorry for that night 
         Am           G
And I go back to December


[Chorus]

    C                                   
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you 
G                                          F
Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine 


[Post-Chorus]

       Am              G                       F
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright 
       Am                 G                      F
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
     Am                   G 
I go back to December all the time 


[Outro]

C F
        C
All the time

C F

In this part it's supposed to be like this:

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

But all the rest is perfect :)
