December Lyrics

There's a Victorian tin I keep my memories in
I found it up in the attic
After looking inside I find the things that I'm hiding
The leaves saved from a mistletoe kiss
Only nostalgia has me feeling like this
Like I miss you
It must be the time of year

Remember December
It's like a wintergreen beside a diamond stream
Remember December
A fall of snow and the afterglow
It could be taking our breath away
but the years stand in the way
Remember December
How does it make you feel inside?

Beneath a Valentine, I see a locket is shining
I think it must be the wine
makes me feel it's all real
Where nothing seems to rhyme
To breathe life into the dust of a keepsake
I might as well try to fix a chain on a snowflake
or a heartache
It must be the time of year

Should I feel this alone, should I pick up the phone
Should I call up and wish you `Happy Christmas'?
I feel so alone, should I pick up the phone
Take my heart in my hand
and ask if you remember
