Wake Me Up When September Ends

I guess September ends tonight.

So many things have to end. Sometimes it feels premature at the time, but after a while, it's easy to see why endings are crucial. They make way for beginnings of a different sort.


Green Day
Wake Me Up When September Ends
Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

like my father's come to pass
seven years has gone so fastwake me up when September ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are
as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lostwake me up when September ends

summer has come and passed
the innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

ring out the bells again
like we did when spring began
wake me up when September ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends


like my father's come to pass
twenty years has gone so fast
wake me up when September ends
wake me up when September ends
wake me up when September ends

  1. I wouldn't mind if we just skipped September altogether
