Dog Days Are Over Lyrics

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't you hear the horses
Cuz here they come

And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had
And what was left after that too. oh.

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 gone
Can you hear the horses
Cuz 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 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

This song has so much meaning to me.. I do believe the meaning is in reference to running hiding from fear & love BUT for reason.. I just left an abusive controlling marriage & i firmly believe the song is about that..thank u Flo this carried me thru subservience to freedom again... I ran for MY CHILDREN and had to leave my love & longing 4 him behind

Happiness hit her unexpectedly & she is not comfortable with it--she hides from it,runs from it, & washes it down the sink--And love is a burden that doesn't help you survive. Kinda sad but I like it.

I'm an old lady and love this song and the artist. The Dog Days Are Over refers to the old saying, The Dog Days of Summer,which represent an idealic time of youth and fun. Life happens the horses come
