Afternoon has settled long and heavy on my shoulders
The winter's light feels different on my skin
It doesn't seem to strike as far below the surface so
I have to conclude that shadow won't let it in
Shadow won't let it in
Shadow won't let it in

December
You've always been a problem child
December
You run me down right restless and wild and I remember
When you used to be mine
December oh
December oh

The leaves are all still changing, the weather here is mild and vacant
A winter's blooming on Los Angeles
The artificial cold is more than I was hoping for but not enough to consume
The darkened state I'm in
The darkened state I'm in
The darkened state I'm in

December
You've always been a problem child
December
You run me down right restless and wild and I remember
When you used to be mine
December oh
December oh

Distill a whole year down into a day
Act like we all start over with a pristine slate
But to get yourself a new life you've got to give the other one away
And I'm starting to believe in the power of a name
'Cause it can't be a mistake if I just call it change

December oh
(Can't turn around now)
December (Can't turn around now)
(Can't turn around now)
December (Break the chain, can't live in circles again)
(Break the chain, can't live in circles again)
December (Break the chain, can't live in circles again)
(Break the chain, can't live in circles again)
December (Break the chain, can't live in circles again)
(Break the chain)
