Stumbled around the block a thousand times
You missed every call that I had tried
So now I'm giving up
A heartbreak in mid December
You don't give a fuck
You never remember me
While you're pulling on his jeans
Getting lost in the big city
I was looking out our window
Watching all the cars go
Wondering if I'll see Chicago
Or a sunset on the west coast
Or will I die in the cold
Feeling blue and alone
I wonder if you'll ever hear this song on your stereo

I hope you get your ball room floor
Your perfect house with rose red doors
I'm the last thing you'd remember
It's been a long lonely December
I wish I'd known that less is more
But I was passed out on the floor
That's the last thing I remember
It's been a long lonely December

Cast me aside to show yourself in a better light
I came out grieving, barely breathing and you came out alright
But I'm sure you'll take his hand
I hope he's better than I ever could have been
My mistakes were not intentions this is a list of my confessions I couldn't say

Pain is never permanent but tonight it's killing me

I hope you get your ball room floor
Your perfect house with rose red doors
I'm the last thing you'd remember
It's been a long lonely December
I wish I'd known that less is more
But I was passed out on the floor
That's the last thing I remember
It's been a long lonely December

I miss your face
You're in my head
There's so many things that I should have said
A year of suffering, a lesson learned [x2]

I hope you get your ball room floor
Your perfect house with rose red doors
I'm the last thing you'd remember
It's been a long lonely December
I wish I'd known that less is more
But I was passed out on the floor
That's the last thing I remember
It's been a long lonely December

    Song MeaningI think this song is really displaying the major theme of acceptance and moving on. The central conflict regarding two individuals who used to belong in each other's lives are now strangers and one of them refuses to let go of the past and the memories. The lyric, "I am the last thing you remember" is concerning the reality that one has chosen to move on and let go of anything that used to be, while the other (male) is stuck in one state of mind. His refusal to accept his present, in fact enhances his need to return. His lack of acceptance towards moving past memories, leaves him to feel empty and lonely in December. December, a cold and almost a "lonely" monotone month represents the several representations that it can be. December although cold and almost depressing, does in fact symbolize traditions (holidays) and the symbolic value of family. The speaker has lost something and yearns for the past to return, where can he can feel whole. Yet, he wishes his ex lover the best and knows that things must be that way.
