Dog days are over

Ieri la mia Silviotta mi ha dedicato questa canzone su Facebook. Credo perchè fosse contenta e orgogliosa di me per l'esito del colloquio. E non so quante volte l'ho riascoltata e rivista, è impressionante. Mai sentita prima, magari sono pure famosissimi, ma la mia cultura musicale pressochè rock 'n rollistica risale tipo ai gloriosi anni '50 '60 e '70.
Wikipedia ci dice che: "Florence and the Machine (conosciuti anche come Florence + the Machine), è il nome d'arte di Florence Leontine Mary Welch (...) e di un gruppo di artisti che collaborano con lei per creare musica per la sua voce. Lo stile di Florence and the Machine è generalmente ispirato al soul e all'indie rock".
E ve la regalo, insieme al testo che c'azzecca tantissimo con me: 


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 loving, your loving behind
You cant 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 hit her like a bullet in the head
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 your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your loving, your loving behind
You cant 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
The horses are coming
So you better run
