The afternoon has settled long and heady 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…
Ou've always been a problem child
December You run me down restless and wild
And I remember when you used to be mine 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 restless and wild
But I remember when you used to be mine 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
Break the chain can’t live in circles again December
