"Back to December" is a song by American country pop singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, from her third studio album Speak Now. The song is released as the second single from the album on November 15, 2010. It will be serviced also for mainstream airplay on November 30, 2010. The song debuted at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 with 242,000 digital downloads, and has since re-entered at number 74 upon being released as a single.

According to Swift, "Back to December" addresses a first for her, in that she had never apologized to someone in a song before. The song is about somebody who was incredible to her, just perfect to her in a relationship, and she was really careless with him, so these are the words that she would say to him that he deserves to hear. Based in certain aspects of the song's lyrics, like the time line and some physical descriptions, it has been speculated that "Back to December" is about Swift's ex-boyfriend and Twilight saga's actor Taylor Lautner. Neither Swift nor Lautner has confirmed or denied these rumors.
