“ Speak Now” Lyrics:

I am not the kind of girl, 
Who should be rudely bargin' in on a white veil 
occasion,
But you are not the kind of boy,
Who should be marryin' the wrong girl,

I sneak in and see your friends,
And her snotty little family, all dressed in pastel,
And she is yelling at a bridesmaid, 
Somewhere back inside a room, 
Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry,
This is surely not what you thought it would be,
I loose myself in a daydream, 
Where I stand and say:

"Don't say yes, run away now,
I'll meet you when you're out, 
Of the church at the back door,
Don't wait or say a single vow,
You need to hear me out,"
And they said, "Speak now,"

Fun gestures are exchanged,
And the organ starts to play 
A song that sounds like a death march,
And I am hiding in the curtains,
It seems I was uninvited by your lovely bride-to-be,
She floats down the isle like a pageant queen,
But I know you wish it was me,
You wish it was me, don't you?

Don't say yes, run away now,
I'll meet you when you're out, 
Of the church at the back door,
Don't wait or say a single vow,
You need to hear me out,
And they said, "Speak now,"
Don't say yes, run away now,
I'll meet you when you're out, 
Of the church at the back door,
Don't wait or say a single vow,
Your time is running out,
And they said, "Speak now,"

I hear the preacher say,
"Speak now or forever hold your peace,"
There's a silence, there's my last chance,
I stand up with shaking hands,
All eyes on me,
Horrified looks from everyone in the room,
But I'm only lookin' at you,
I am not the kind of girl, 
Who should be rudely bargin' in on a white veil 
occasion,
But you are not the kind of boy,
Who should be marryin' the wrong girl,

So don't say yes, run away now,
I'll meet you when you're out, 
Of the church at the back door,
Don't wait or say a single vow,
You need to hear me out,
And they said, "Speak now,"
And you say,
"Let's run away now,
I'll meet you when I'm out of my tux at the back door,
Baby, I didn't say my vows,
So glad you were around when they said, "Speak now,"

“Back to December” Lyrics:

I'm so glad you made time to see me
How's life, tell me how's your family
I haven't seen them in a while
You've been good, busier then ever
We small talk, work and the weather
Your guard is up and I know why

'Cause the last time you saw me 
Is still burned in the back of your mind
You gave me roses and I left them there to die

So this is me swallowing my pride, 
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night 
And I'd go back to december all the time
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you 
Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine
I'd go back to december, turn around and make it alright and I go back to december all the time

These days I haven't been sleeping
Staying up playing back myself leaving 
When your birthday passed and I didn't call
And I think about summer, all the beautiful times
I watched you laughing from the passenger side, 
Realized I loved you in the fall
And then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind You gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye 

So this is me swallowing my pride, 
Standing in front of you saying I'm sorry for that night
And I'd go back to december all the time
It turns out freedom ain't nothing but missing you 
Wishing that I'd realized what I had when you were mine
I'd go back to december, turn around and change my own mind and I go back to december all the time

I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right  And how you held me in your arms that September night, 
The first time you ever saw me cry
Maybe this is wishful thinking 
Probably mindless dreaming
If we loved again I swear I'd love you right

I'd go back in time and change it but I can't
So if the chain is on your door, I understand

But this is me swallowing my pride, 
Standing in front of you...
