Dog Days Are Over

Florence + The Machine

Happiness hit her
Like a train on a track
Coming towards her
Stuck still, no turning back

She hid around corners
And she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses
And from it she fled

With every bubble
She sank with a drink
And washed it away
Down the kitchen sink

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming
So you better run

Run fast for your mother
Run fast for your father
Run for your children
For your sisters and brothers

Leave all your love and your longing behind
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come

And I never wanted
Anything from you
Except everything you had
And what was left after that too, oh

Happiness hit her
Like a bullet in the back
Struck from a great height
By someone who should have known better than that

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come

Run fast for your mother
Run fast for your father
Run for your children
For your sisters and brothers

Leave all your love and your longing behind
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come

The dog days are over (here they come)
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come (here they come)

The dog days are over
The dog days are gone (here they come)
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come
