playSummer has come and passed
playThe innocent can never last
playWake me up when September ends

playLike my father's come to pass
playSeven years has gone so fast
playWake me up when September ends

playHere comes the rain again
playFalling from the stars
playdrenched in my pain again
playBecoming who we are

playAs my memory rests
playBut never forgets what I lost
playWake me up when September ends

playSummer has come and passed
playThe innocent can never last
playWake me up when September ends

playRing out the bells again
playLike we did when spring began
playWake me up when September ends

playHere comes the rain again
playFalling from the stars
playDrenched in my pain again
playBecoming who we are

playAs my memory rests
playBut never forgets what I lost
playWake me up when September ends

playSummer has come and passed
playThe innocent can never last
playWake me up when September ends

playLike my father's come to pass
playTwenty years has gone so fast
playWake me up when September ends
playWake me up when September ends
playWake me up when September ends
