Dog Days Are Over 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

Thoughts & Meanings

The person described in the song is suddenly overcome with joy as they release their ambitions. '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.' Now the person is free to play hide and seek, kiss playfully and relax. Part of the chorus shows that she has left 'longing' and wants behind her. 'Leave all your love and your longing behind you. Can't carry it with you if you want to survive.' The message is further explained when the singer says 'And I never wanted anything from you. Except everything you had.' The singer wanted everything but that desire trapped her and made her feel unhappy - now she is free.

Some shitty past was the one that she had, maybe one related to alcohol or abuse or something and now all of that is over because she woke up and she realized she could "run it off" or in other words, she could be happy again if she got to leave behind all of that and with that, her dog days.
