Dog Days Are Over - Florence + The Machine

I'm stuck on this song today, or, it is stuck on me - not sure which. I love the lyrics...and what a voice!



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 cant carry it with you if you want to survive


The dog days are over

The dog days are done

Can you hear the horses?

Because 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 head

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?

Because 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 loving, your loving behind

You cant carry it with you if you want to survive


The dog days are over

The dog days are done

Can you hear the horses?

Because here they come


The dog days are over

The dog days are done

The horses are coming

So you better run

LOVE LOVE LOVE this piece - and weirdly enough, i wrote a piece sometime ago that reminds me of this song - AND - an image of a herd of wild horses accompanied the words -

are you familiar with her piece called "howl"? you'll love it, too!

I like this song, but it has been so overplayed on the radio where I live that I soon got sick of it even though it is a really good song. :-/ I'm glad it makes you all smile though :)

Ladycat, She is one talented singer. I love her style. :) Thank you for visiting. xOx

Me too, girl. I am not familiar to the piece "howl". I'm going to have to check it out. Love ya! xOx

Adrielle, I know what you mean about songs being over-played. I don't listen to the radio very often, so if I do get burned out on a song, it is of my own doing. :) You so sweet to always stop by. I hope to have more time to spend on my blog, where I can be more consistent, like you guys.:) xOx
