Dog Days Are Over by Florence & The Machine – Lyrics with Chords

[Intro]
| G   | G   | G   | G   |
| G   | Am  | Em  | Em  |
 
[Verse 1]
G                                     G Am Em
  Happiness hit her like a train on a track
G                                       G     Am Em
  Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back
    G
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
    G                 Am       Em
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
     G
With every bubble she sank with a drink
    G            Am         Em
And washed it away down the kitchen sink
 
[Chorus]
    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
    G           Am       Em
The horses are coming so you better run
 
[Verse 2]
    G
Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
G
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
G                             Am
Leave all your love and your longing behind
          Em
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive
 
[Chorus]
    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
G                   Am
Can you hear the horses
       Em          G
'Cause here they come
 
[Bridge]
    G G            G        Am     Em
And I never wanted anything from you
       G    G
Except everything you had
    G             Am         Em
And what was left after that too, oh
 
[Verse 3]
G                                        G Am Em
  Happiness hit her like a bullet in the back
G
  Struck from a great height
               G              Am       Em
By someone who should know better than that
 
[Chorus]
    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
G                   Am
Can you hear the horses
       Em             G
'Cause here they come
 
[Verse 4]
    G
Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
G
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
G                             Am
Leave all your love and your longing behind
          Em
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive
 
[Chorus]
    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
G                   Am
Can you hear the horses
       Em
'Cause here they come
 
    G
The dog days are over
    G
The dog days are done
    G          Am
The horses are coming
   Em
So you better run
