About the song[]

The intro is as light and airy as a helium balloon floating up and away, Nile Rodgers's guitar riffs and John Taylor' Bernard Edwards-like bass grooves join forces to jolt "Only in Dreams" back to earth.

Le Bon has said Nile's parts were lifted from an eleven-minute solo.

Lyrics[]

Only in dreams girl am I part of your world
My heart it screams or so it seems
Only in dreams

Only in my in my dreams only in my dreams
Only in my in my dreams only in my dreams

Only in dreams girl where my crime goes unheard
What does it mean to fly the scene
Only in dreams girl

There's a vampire in the limousine
Sun's going down like a symphony
She keeps a guard up while her nails are wet
I don't want to wake up

Only in dreams I'm in dopamine time
It's in my genes, it get's extreme
Only in dreams

How did I dream you
You're the queen of steel dunes
Look what you done my colors run
When ever you come to

There's a vampire in the limousine
Sun's going down like a symphony
She keeps a guard up while her nails are wet
I don't want to wake up

There's a vampire in the limousine
Sun's going down like a symphony
She keeps a guard up while her nails are wet
I don't want to wake up

On the rooftop we can feel the drop
She bathes in the moon while the shadows watch
I should be nervous but my eyes forget
I don't want to wake up
I'm not gonna wake up
I don't want to wake up

Only in my in my dreams only in my dreams
Don't want to wake up
Only in my in my dreams only in my dreams
Don't want to wake up
Dreams, dreams, dreams, dreams
