Let’s run away, start a new life
Turn away from all the pain, let go of the strife
Move along and not look back, no fear of loss, no heart attacks
Move on from November, I’ll see you when December is here
I’ll see you when December is here

As all the months pass by (how time seems to fly)
It’s hardly living when we wait to die
Another week has passed, another month gone by
But we’re closing in on one to remember
As we catch up with December

The spring passed, the new life didn’t last
Nothing ever mattered then when autumn went so fast
Forget about the tragedies, forsaken summer memories
We can start it all over, try again when December is here
Try again when December is here

As all the months pass by (how time seems to fly)
It’s hardly living when we wait to die
Another week has passed, another month gone by
But we’re closing in on one to remember
As we catch up with December

In the cold snow, how typical
Everything looks dead, but that doesn’t make it so
But it’s easy to see how to change back to the way things used to be
Go back to the start; begin again when December is here
Begin when December is here

And though the frost is cold and the sky boils with clouds
This is a time of hope, not a frozen burial shroud
A time to pause and reflect, abandon the front lines, defect
Return to the peaceful land where we can begin again
Leave behind (forget all about)
This war (our past struggles)
Throw down (just drop it)
Our arms (leave the arguments behind)
Start anew (like we just met)
Reborn (and maybe, just maybe)
The winter doesn’t have to be so desolate
New life could grow under the ice
Sunlight filters through the dark sky
And a lone flower pushes through the snow bank
A stem of hope in the glacial mound of despair
That flower could be us

As all the months pass by (how time seems to fly)
It’s hardly living when we wait to die
Another week has passed, another month gone by
But we’re closing in on one to remember
As we catch up with December
