Innocence Can Never Last
September 10, 2005

Ever since I was small, certain moods and certain songs just seem to go together for me. When I was writing my first novel in high school, I made a mix tape of the songs that just fit the book. I did the same thing for the novel I wrote in college.
There's one song playing on the radio around here these days that just really feels particularly right tonight.

Green Day ... American Idiot ... "Wake Me 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 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 Septdmber 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
