Taylor Swift - Back To December Chords

[intro] x2
D  Bm  G

[verse 1]
D
   I'm so glad   you made 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
Cause 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                                           F#m
So this is me swallowing my pride, standing in front of you
                           G
Saying I'm sorry for that night
         D                 A
And I go back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
F#m                                    G
Wishing I'd realized what I had when you were  mine
     D                  A                      G
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright
     Bm               A
I go back to December all the time

[solo] x2
D  Bm G

[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 watched you laughing from the passenger side
    G                               D     A
And    realized I loved you in the fall

[pre-chorus]
Bm                          A
    And when the cold came,   the dark days
     D                  G
When fear crept into my mind
            Bm
You gave me all your love
          A            G
and all I gave you was   goodbye

[chorus]
   D                                           F#m
So this is me swallowing my pride, standing in front of you
                            G
Saying I'm sorry for that night
         D                 A
And I go back to December all the time
   D
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
F#m                                         G
Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine
     D                  A                         G
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
     Bm                A
I go back to December all the time

[guitar solo] x2
D  Bm G

[bridge]
            Bm                G
I miss your tan skin and your sweet smile
   D              A
So good to me, so right
             Bm              G                   D
And how you held me in your arms that September night
                   A             Bm
The first time you ever saw me cry
              Bm
Maybe this is wishful thinking
G
   Probably mindless dreaming
D                                             A
  But if we 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

[chorus]
    D                                           F#m
But this is me swallowing my pride, standing in front of you
                            G
Saying I'm sorry for that night
         D               A
And I go back to December   --> comp in
    D
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
F#m                                         G
Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine
     D                 A                        G
I go back to December, turn around and make it alright
     Bm                 A                         G
I go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
     Bm                A
I go back to December all the time

[outro]
D    Bm G           D     Bm  G
           All the time
