'Wake Me Up When September Ends'

(My favourite song, written by the great Billie Joe Armstrong, PBUH, to whom all best wishes are extended for a speedy return to health)

"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 fast
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

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 end"
