Lyrics:

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last		(Riff 1 w/Ending 1)
Wake me up when September ends

Like my fathers come to pass
Seven years has gone so fast		(Riff 1 w/Ending 2)
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars			(Riff 2)
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost		(Riff 1 w/Ending 1)
Wake me up when September ends

(Intro)
(Ending 1)

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last		(Riff 3 w/Ending 3)
Wake me up when September ends

Ring out the bells again
Like we did when spring began		(Riff 3 w/Ending 4)
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars			(Riff 4)
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost		(Riff 3 w/Ending 4)
Wake me up when September ends

(Bridge)
(Intro)

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last		(Riff 3 w/Ending 3)
Wake me up when September ends

Like my fathers come to pass
Seven years has gone so fast		(Riff 3 w/Ending 3)
Wake me up when September ends

Wake me up when September Ends
Wake me up when September Ends		(Outro)
Wake me up when September Ends
