Taylor Swift – Back To December

Intro: D Bm G
       D Bm G
D
I’m so glad you made the time to see me
Bm
How’s life, tell me how’s your family
G                        D   A
I haven’t seen them in a while
D
You’ve been good, busier than ever
Bm
We small talk, work and the weather
G                              D  A
You’re guard is up, and I know why
Bm                    A
Because the last time you saw me
           D                          G
It’s still burned in the back of your mind
            Bm          A                  G
You gave me roses and I left them there to die
D
So this is me swallowing my pride
            F#m
Standing in front of you saying
                    G
“I’m sorry for that night” and I go
D                A
Back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain’t
D
Nothing but missing you
F#m
Wishing I’d realized what I had
     G
When you were mine
       D
I’d go back to December,
A                           G
Turn around and make it all right
     Bm *once         A
I go back to December all the time
D Bm G
D Bm G
D
These days I haven’t been sleeping
Bm
Stayin’ up playing back myself leaving
G                                      D  A
When your birthday passed and I didn’t call
       D
Then I think about summer all the beautiful times
Bm
I watch you laughing from the passenger side
G                               D  A
And realized I loved you in the fall
Bm                     A
And then the cold came the dark days
     D                  G
When fear crept into my mind
            Bm
You gave me all your love and
      A           G
All I gave you was goodbye
D
So this is me swallowing my pride
            F#m
Standing in front of you saying
                    G
“I’m sorry for that night” and I go
D                A
Back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain’t
(D)
Nothing but missing you
F#m
Wishing I’d realized what I had
     G
When you were mine
       D
I’d go back to December,
A                         G
Turn around and change my own mind
     Bm               A
I go back to December all the time
D Bm G
D Bm G
            Bm            G
I miss your tan skin your sweet smile
   D              A
So good to me, so right
            Bm              G
And how you held me in your arms
               D
That September night
                   A           Bm -stop
The first time you ever saw me cry
                              G -stop
Maybe this is wishful thinking
                          D
Probably mindless dreaming
D                                     A
If you loved again I swear I’d love you right
Bm *once         A*              G*
I’d go back in time and change it but I can’t
          Bm*              A*          G*
So if the chain is on your door I understand
D
But this is me swallowing my pride
            F#m
Standing in front of you saying
                    G
“I’m sorry for that night” and I go
D              A
Back to December…
   D
It turns out freedom ain’t
D
Nothing but missing you
F#m
Wishing I’d realized what I had
     G
When you were mine
       D
I’d go back to December
A                           G
Turn around and make it all right
       D
I’d go back to December
A                         G
Turn around and change my own mind
     Bm               A
I go back to December all the time
D  Bm G         D  Bm G
