We hate to be the bearers of bad news but we're more than halfway through August already.

What always helps us get through hard, sad times like these? Music of course! We asked YOU what are the best songs and lyrics to describe the end of summer. Here are 3 of the best...

3. Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends



"Summer has come and passed / The innocent can never last / Wake me up when September ends"

This song captures the sadness and depression that can set in when you realize it's almost September and back to school is just around the corner. But look on the bright side: you get to see your friends every day! New clothes! Pretty trees changing color!

2. Boys Of Summer - Don Henley



"Nobody on the road, nobody on the beach / I feel it in the air, the summer's out of reach"

This song is about losing your lover to a summer fling, but don't worry Don Henley, summer's almost over! You'll get her back!

1. Fun. - We Are Young




"Tonight / We are young / So let's set the world on fire / We can burn brighter / than the sun"

This was one of the songs of the summer and its carefree anthemic lyrics are perfect to wrap up the summer that was.
