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
Because the last time you saw me
Is still burned in the back of your mind
You gave me roses, and I left them there to die.

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

It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright
I go back to December all the time.

These days, I haven't been sleeping
Staying up, playing back myself leaving
When your birthday passed, and I didn't call
Then 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
So this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you,
Saying I'm sorry for that night.
And I go back to December all the time.

It turns out freedom ain't nothing
but missing you
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
I go back to December,
Turn around and change my own mind
I go back to December all the time.

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
But 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

And then he said it's too late to apologize
It's too late He said it's too late to apologize
It's too late

And I said, this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you, saying
I'm sorry for that night
It's too late to apologize
And I go back to December all the time.

It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were mine
(It's too late to apologize)
He said you're not sorry

No, no, no
You're not sorry
No, no, no
You're not sorry
No, no, no
You're not sorry
No, no, no
