The Dog Days Are Over.

“But you’ve got the love I need to see me through.”-Florence + The Machine

It’s a music day today. Last night, I listened to numerous songs by Florence and The Machine. I had listened to her before, but it wasn’t until last night that I discovered how great she is. She’s a lot like Adele in her voice, but I feel like her unpredictability makes her better. Some of her songs are quiet, and some are loud. As I was listening to them last night (“Cosmic Love” and “You’ve Got The Love”) I became more motivated. I got a lot of work done that I needed to, which was definitely a plus.

Here are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs by Florence + The Machine: “Dog Days Are Over”

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 gone
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 longing behind you
Can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are gone
Can you hear the horses
Because here they come

The dog days are over
The dog days are gone
Can you hear the horses
Because here they come

Check it out on Youtube. It’s an amazing song, and it’s fun to dance to!
