Happiness hit her, like a train on the 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 you 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
it hurt
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
run fast for you father
run for your children,
for your sisters and brothers
leave all your love
and 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
the dogs days are over ,
the dog days are done

(Whole stanza x 3)
