December - Sara Bareilles

The 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
That 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...
December...

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
But I remember when you used to be mine
December...
December...

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