About the song
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.
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.

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
