Dog Days Are over - Florence And 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 her 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 know 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

(Here they come)



The dog days are over

The dog days are done

(Here they come)

The horses are coming so you better run
