    This song describes my recent break up with my girlfriend. We just broke up last week. We got together in the summer, I had her smiling and laughing like crazy in the passenger side of my vehicle, realized that I loved her during the beginning of fall, and kind of missed her birthday because I had to work. I never realized what I had until she broke u with me while starting my new career...

    i totally love this song for it's like Taylor Swift knew that it happened in my life. not my lovelife but my parents'. it was September when mom announced that she was planning of leaving to work in another country, leaving us behind and it was in the month of December that she left. she left ignoring the pleads of my dad who bought her a bouquet of red roses because it was her favorite but she just left it in their bed. now dad's totally over it and mom wants to apologize. but dad was too numb to feel her sincerity. and thanks to this song. because when i got the two of them listening to this they both broke into tears and realized what they both done. now they're on the stage of healing the wounds that they, themselves, planted on their hearts.. :DD

    I think the song is about a failed relationship with someone who once loved you deeply but you didn't love him back as much as he does love you. During the coarse of the relationship, the other showed a greater love for one person while that person didn't compensated the affection and even ended the relationship. In the end, the one who ended the relationship realized that all the while she actually had loved the other person and asked for forgiveness or a reconciliation.The reason why she goes back to December ( probably their love relationship started in that month or they had many fond-lover memories during those days) is to keep her from feeling lonely. Reminiscing the past comforted her.

    well this song reminds me of back to December 2009..that winter i met the best guy in the world..and sure our relationship had its ups and downs..somedays were wonderful and others i prayed for better days..and recently in November 2010 my mother wouldnt let me see him anymore, and our relationship has just went down hill from there..and we still keep fighting..and i think i might have really lost him..i pray i didnt..because this man changed my whole life. he made me realize that my past was not the girl i wanted to be and he led me on the right path. and i will always love him..and i only pray that i see him very soon..and that he dosnt let go of me and break my heart. but i willl always love him..and miss him. ;(

    ~please hold on.

    I must say this is a side of Taylor i've never seen before. When I first heart this song I cried right on the spot because i put the lyrics together and figured out she wrote it for Taylor Lautner for breaking his sweet, caring heart. I would love to see them work things out and find their way back to one another.
