Dokken - Dream Warriors


Written by George Lynch and Jeff Pilson of Dokken, this is the theme song to the 1987 movie A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, the first in the franchise starring Patricia Arquette.


The band was asked to write the song, which had to be titled "Dream Warriors," the name for the kids in the film who fight back against their nocturnal tormentor, Freddy Krueger. Fortunately, that's a song-friendly title, and they were able to write a big chorus around it. The verse lyrics are more generic, dealing with sleep and torment.


Lyrics


I lie awake and dread the lonely nights I'm not alone I wonder if these heavy eyes Can face the unknown When I close my eyes I realize You'll come my way I'm standing in the night alone Forever together With the dream warriors Don't wanna dream no more With the dream warriors And maybe tonight Maybe tonight you'll be gone I feel the touch comin' over me I can't explain I hear the voices callin' out Callin' my name It's the same desire to feel the fire That's comin' your way I'm standing in the night alone Forever together With the dream warriors Don't wanna dream no more With the dream warriors Maybe tonight you'll be gone With the dream warriors Ain't gonna dream no more And maybe tonight Maybe tonight you'll be gone Sweet revenge, the bitter end This time Break the spell of illusion Bound together waiting for you Dream warriors Don't wanna dream no more With the dream warriors Maybe tonight you'll be gone With the dream warriors Ain't gonna dream no more With the dream warriors And maybe tonight Maybe tonight you'll be gone Dream warriors Maybe tonight you'll be gone Dream warriors, forever Dream warriors Maybe tonight you'll be gone Dream warriors
