Wake Me Up When September Ends – [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Green Day[/lastfm]

Another song about the loss of one’s father, and in this case it’s Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong.  Check out this passionate performance of the track at KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas in 2004.

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

like my fathers 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
