Back to december lyrics


Back to december


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
Cause the last time you saw me
Is still burn 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 that I realized
What I had when you were mine.
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all right
I go back to December all the time.

These days I haven't been sleeping
Staying up playing back myself leavin'
When your birthday passed and I didn't call.
And I think about summer, all the beautiful times,
I watched you laughing from the passenger side.
Realized that I loved you in the fall

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 that I realized
What I had when you were mine.
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all right
I go back to December all the time.

I miss your tanned 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,
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.

But this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you saying, "I'm sorry for that night"
And I go back to December...
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you,
Wishing that I realized
What I had when you were mine.
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it all right.
I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mind

I go back to December all the time.
All the time

i swear this song has got its own magic each December comes by. Just like Mariah's“ All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

Her saddest break up isn't all too well, Last kiss, dear John or any other. They all are amazing but Nothing can beat Back to December. Nothing.

Damn, Taylor I was the one of the first people on planet to click this music video when it came out back in 2011 and used to have the "307 views" shown into the view counter. I feel old. Thank you for the good music for all those years.

no one can deny the fact that she sings and writes beautiful

All the songs she made about her ex-boyfriends, talked about their bad things, that they had broken her heart, etc. But this song is about Taylor Lautner, and it's the only one she apologizes to the guy that she loved but did not give enough value. I love this song one of Taytay's best.

Ahhh man the nostalgia. I remember I was such a big fan of taylor swift when I was a kid. My friends would make fun of me because I'm a guy singing songs like Fifteen or White Horse, etc, back in 2008 like it was no ones business. Also brings back memories of the girl i dated in my preteen years, her being a big fan of taylor also, so we'd sing these songs together. Lol, glad im going through her old music to reminisce on the old days.

I'm not the biggest fan of Taylor, but i'm feeling sad while i watching this after LWYMMD, cause it seems like this cute and romantic part of Taylor really dead, killed by all this hate.

people say all her song is about revenge on her exes, how they mistreat her. but this song is an apology.

And people is still saying that all she does is singing breakup songs about her exes, this is literally a apology for her ex and that she regrets that she didn't treat him well. I mean that's heartwarming to experience as a fan, I'm a proud swiftie. <33

This song makes me miss an ex i never had

Not sure if anyone else has ever picked up on this, but I think about it every time I listen to the song. I'm pretty sure the line 'and how you held me in your arms that September night, the first time you ever saw me cry' (3:23) is referring to the 2009 VMA's (which occurred in September). If I recall correctly, Taylor Lautner, who this song is written for, was on stage with her during the time Kanye interrupted her speech. This line reveals that they evidently went backstage and HE was the one who made her feel okay again after that humiliating spectacle.

People always complain about her music being her ex. What do you want? She'd write a song about chicken? wtf. Most of the songs circle around love, family, pain, self, relationships, depression etc. This is her music. come on.

I have never once complained about her breakup songs. She writes them with so much pain and power that you can't help but relate. Everybody at some point has felt that pain and regret that she singing about in this song. It's beautiful. Bravo Taylor!

... I made the same mistake, I lost a person and I never realized what I had until I lost him, I've never regretted anything so much in my entire life. I lost a diamond looking for rocks. NEVER do that, you'll be sorry for the rest of your life and there's always going to be something to remind you how stupid you were.

So... This guy liked me. A lot. I knew it. But I didn't care. And now he doesn't even care about me and I'm invisible to him. I'm just a boring old memory. And now he has a crush on this other girl (who's my friend, by the way), and I have the biggest crush on HIM now, but he's blind to me and he thinks I'm a weirdo and I just.... Ugh. I wish I hadn't been so stupid and told him how I felt before he shut me out.

Actually my girlfriend left me in December. I told her what I feel and she just... got angry and scared at the same time. It's been years but I still don't know what happened exactly.
Anyway it makes me understand this song even though my ex doesn't feel that way.
