Tuesday Tunes

Today's Tune is Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine.  I think she has just about the best voice ever and I enjoy all of her songs, but I heard this one on the radio this morning and decided to share it with you.  I still think my favorite song from this album is Cosmic Love, which I linked back in February of last year (here's a link in case you missed that one), but Dog Days has some great 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 her 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 cant carry it with you if you want to survive

And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had and what was left after that too
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the head
Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that
 So yeah, go check out more Florence + The Machine.  I promise you will not be disappointed.
