now, if only i could pick up the guts to sing it...
found the instrumental... but i cant find my guts...
anyways, here are the lyrics, whoever want to do it....

Back to December (Male Response Cover)

I'm so glad I finally see you
I’m fine, they’re doing great too
They’ve asked about you for a while

And you too, busier than ever
We small talk, work and the weather
My guard is up, and you know why

Because the last time I saw you
Still burns at the back of my mind
I gave you roses, but you left them there to die

But here I am, swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you, saying it’s gonna be alright
And I'd go back to December any time
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing I'd realized I should have never let you go
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it alright
I'd go back to December any time


These days, I haven't been sleeping
Staying up, thinking the day you left me
When my birthday passed, and you didn't call

Then I think about summer, all the beautiful times
I watched you laughing from the driver’s side
And realized I love you even more

And then the cold came, the dark days
When fear crept into your mind
I gave you all my love, and all you gave me was goodbye

But here I am, swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you, saying it’s gonna be alright
And I'd go back to December any time
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing I'd realized I should have never let you go
I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
I'd go back to December any time

I miss your dark hair, your sweet smile
So good to me, so right
And how you held me so tightly that September night
The first time I ever saw you cry
Maybe this is wishful thinking
Probably mindless dreaming
But if we loved again, I swear I’d hold you tight
I'd go back in time and change it, but I can't
So if this is so darn awkward now, I understand

So here I am, swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you, saying it’s gonna be alright
And I'd go back to December
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you
Wishing I'd realized I should have never let you go
I'd go back to December, turn around and make it alright
I'd go back to December, turn around and change my own mind
Let’s go back to December soon after all this time, all this time
