“Dog Days Are Over” by Florence + The Machine

“Leave all your love and your longing behind. You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive.”

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 done
The horses are coming
So you better run

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

Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

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

The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
‘Cause here they come

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

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

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
