How To Play

INTRO
|Dsus4 D     |Bm  G     | (x2)
 
VERSE 1
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
 Your guard is up, and I know why
 
PRE CHORUS
Bm                    A
 Because the last time you saw me
           D                          G
 Is still burned in the back of your mind
              Bm          A                  G
 You gave me roses and I left them there to die
 
CHORUS
     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
 
POST CHORUS
        D
I'd go back to December,
 A                           G
Turn around and make it all right
     Bm               A
I go back to December all the time
 
INSTRUMENTAL
|Dsus4 D     |Bm  G     | (x2)
 
VERSE 2
D
 These days I haven't been sleeping
Bm
 Staying 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
 
PRE CHORUS
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
 
CHORUS
     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
 
POST CHORUS
        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
 
SOLO
|D       |Bm G    | (x2)
 
BRIDGE
             Bm                G
I miss your tanned 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
The first time you ever saw me cry
                              G
Maybe this is wishful thinking
                          D
Probably mindless dreaming
 D                                       A
If you loved again I swear I'd love you right
 
       Bm                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
 
INTERLUDE
    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...
 
CHORUS
    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
 
POST CHORUS
       Bm
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
