Happiness hit her like a train on a trackComing towards her, stuck, still no turning backShe hid around corners and she hid under bedsShe killed it with kisses, and from it she fledWith every bubble she sank with a drinkAnd washed it away down the kitchen sinkThe dog days are overThe dog days are doneThe horses are comingSo you better runRun fast for your mother, run fast for your fatherRun for your children, for your sisters and brothersLeave all your love and your longing behindYou can't carry it with you if you want to surviveThe dog days are overThe dog days are doneCan you hear the horses?'Cause here they comeAnd I never wanted anything from youExcept everything you hadAnd what was left after that too, ohHappiness hit her like a bullet in the backStruck from a great heightBy someone who should know better than thatThe dog days are overThe dog days are doneCan you hear the horses?'Cause here they comeRun fast for your mother, run fast for your fatherRun for your children, for your sisters and brothersLeave all your love and your longing behindYou can't carry it with you if you want to surviveThe dog days are overThe dog days are doneCan you hear the horses?'Cause here they comeThe dog days are overThe dog days are doneThe horses are comingSo you better runThe dog days are overThe dog days are doneThe horses are comingSo you better runLyrics Licensed & Provided by LyricFindBy: Florence Leontine Mary Welch, Isabella Janet Florentina SummersLyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group, Downtown Music Publishing

Intro

Happiness hit her like a train on a track
Coming towards her, stuck, still no turning back

Verse

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

Chorus

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

Instrumental

Verse

Except everything you had
And what was left after that too, oh

Chorus

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

Bridge

Chorus

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
