"Lonely In Your Nightmare" is a Duran Duran song from their second album Rio, released by Capitol-EMI on 10 May 1982.

About the songEdit

The original full length David Kershenbaum mix (4:52) was used for the US release of Rio. It features longer instrumental passages as well as additional lyrics not heard in the edited UK release. This version was also used for the music video, while CD pressings of "Lonely In Your Nightmare" have featured a slightly remixed version of the UK album mix.

Music videoEdit

There were two separate videos made: The first was released to MTV in 1982 but was later re-edited and cut with new footage for the 1983 video album "Duran Duran". The latter version follows "Planet Earth", and features a still from the end of the video, as Simon picks it up and continues looking through old photographs.

The video is mostly black and white; the colour scenes were filmed before, in Sri Lanka. This is evident by the band's different wardrobe as well as the different hairstyle John was sporting. Scenes from the video were later used in "Save A Prayer", specifically Simon and a girl dancing.

Complete list of mixes Edit

  1. "Lonely In Your Nightmare" (UK LP Version) - 3:50 - Edit of the US Album 'Remix'

LyricsEdit

Even on the darkest night
When empty promise means empty hand
Soldiers coming home
Like shadows turning red

And when the lights of hope
Are fading quickly then look to me
I'll be your homing angel
I'll be in your head

Because you're lonely in your nightmare
Let me in
And there's heat beneath your winter
Let me in

I see the delta traces
Living lonely out on the limb
And a passing glimmer
Warm beneath your skin

Please tread gently on the ground
When all around you earth turns to fire
Only get a second chance
When danger's on the wind

Because you're lonely in your nightmare
Let me in
Because there's heat beneath your winter
Let me in

Must be lucky weather
When you find the kind of wind that you need
C'mon show me all the light
And shade that made your name

I know you've got it in your head
I've seen that look before
You've built your refuge
Turns you captive all the same

Because you're lonely in your nightmare
Let me in
And it's barren in your garden
Let me in
Because there's heat beneath your winter
Let me in

Because you're so lonely in your nightmare
Let me in
And it's cold out on your stone range
Let me in
Because there's heat beneath your winter
Let me in
