"Salt in the Rainbow" is an unreleased song by Duran Duran, written by the five original band members during the Astronaut demo sessions.

About the song Edit

The song was written during demo sessions for the Astronaut album, which began in the south of France in June 2001. The band wrote more than 30 songs during the demo sessions that continued into 2002 and 2003.

During this period a teaser CD with short demo versions of a few of the unfinished songs (used to demonstrate the new work to potential labels and producers) was leaked to the Internet and quickly copied throughout the band's fan base. The songs on the CD were "Virus", "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise", "TV vs Radio", "Taste the Summer", "Salt in the Rainbow" and "Pretty Ones".

The band were very unhappy about the leak and with the exception of "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise" which became their first single and "Taste the Summer", the leaked songs were not included in the final version of Astronaut. "Virus" later appeared as a bonus track on a Japanese edition of Astronaut.

Lyrics Edit

Something to remember

In some far off time

When you get that lonely shine in your eye



Dreamers and lovers

Ever wonder why

When everything starts breaking down

They're reaching for the sky



We are forever

All we understand

This is forever

Here within our hands

(Forever, together, we're gonna live forever)


Picking through the pieces

And what do you have at all?

Just the danger of relying on those who'd let you fall



So you try, try much harder

Until the truth is drawn

The very thing you've been searching for

Has been yours all along



We are forever

All we understand

This is forever

Here within our hands

(Forever, together, we're gonna live forever)


In the end, to you my friend

It's you I've got to know

Ain't no going back now

Even if I could I wouldn't change a thing,

I'd do it all over

Just a minute now 

And breathe a little deeper

All these moments of our lives

Of the flickering of an endless sea

We're ripples

With the salt in the rainbow


We are forever

All we understand (Forever, together, we're gonna live forever)

This is forever

Here within our hands (Forever, together, we're gonna live forever)
