A Song About Finding Happiness

 

“Dog Days Are Over” – by Florence + The Machine

Florence and The Machine is an indie rock group from London, England. The band consists of the main vocalist, Florence Welch, Isabella Summers on the keyboard, and Rob Ackroyd on the guitar.  Since the formation of the band in 2007, they have won various awards and recognition for their unique blend of music styles. The hit single “Dog Days Are Over” has been used in a variety of television series and films around the world including, Gossip Girl, Skins, and Eat Pray Love. The catchy tune is a song about finding happiness and realizing that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel. No matter what hardships we are facing we will reach a point when the “dog days are over,” and the struggles will all be in the past. It’s a great song that encourages the listener to run towards happiness and leave all of the hardships behind.

“…The horses are coming so you better run”

 

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’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
