According to the Dog Days Are Over Songfacts, this paean to the inevitability of happiness was inspired by a giant text installation titled "Dog Days Are Over" by artist Ugo Rondinone, which Florence used to see every day riding her bike over Waterloo Bridge. Read more on Last.fm.

dog days are over
florence the machine
Happiness, it hurt 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 and 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

And I never wanted anything from you except everything you had
And what was left after that too
Happiness, it hurt like a bullet in the mind
Stuck them up drainpipes 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 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
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come
