Dog Days Are Over
Florence + the Machine Lyrics


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 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

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

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

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

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't 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 and fast for your father
Run for your children for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your loving 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
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
'Cause here they come

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

About a year ago in lockdown, I started feeling really down all the time. It just got worse in the winter, where I was at I think the worst few months in my life. I couldn’t be happy, it was a strain to smile, a couple of times I found myself with one foot up on my window ledge, seriously considering jumping out.

I’d always loved FATM’s music, but it was around this point I really started listening to them, and I honestly don’t know how, but I think it was this that got me through, particularly the songs Shake It Out, Delilah and Never Let Me Go.

And a few weeks ago, I was sitting on my window ledge, watching the sun set, when for some reason Shake It Out started playing in my head. And it was at that moment when I think I just felt a weight fall off my shoulders, and I just thought, “wow, I’m happy now, I’m free.”

I can’t explain it, and I’m not entirely sure what happened then, but it was honestly the best feeling in the world in that moment. And whatever did go on in my head then, I think Florence’s music played a part in it.

So even though they probably won’t see this, I just want to thank her and the band for helping me through my Dog Days, I think it is quite possible that I owe them my life.



Also, I’ve been reading through the comments, and I just wanna say that I am so proud of every single person here, you are all incredible!

When Corona pandemic is over, I will play this song while running wild and free to the outside world

Katie Hartman

Run anyway. There are places where you still can. Be safe, but don't let not running free be a regret.
