New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) Lyrics

Artist: Simple Minds
Album: Live in the City of Light

New Gold Dream
She is the one in front of me, the siren and the ecstasy
New Gold Dream
Crashing beats and fantasy, setting sun in front of me
New Gold Dream
And the world goes hot
And the cities take
And the beat goes crashing
All along the way

She is your friend until the ocean breaks
And when you dream, dream in the dream with me
And when you dream, dream in the dream with me
81 - 82 - 83 - 84
81 - 82 - 83 - 84

New Gold Dream
Sun is set in front of me, worldwide on the widest screen
New Gold Dream
Burning bridge and ecstasy, crashing beats and fantasy
Dream in the dream with
And the world goes hot
And the cities take
And the beat goes crashing
All along the way

She is your only friend until the ocean breaks

And when you dream, dream in the dream with me
And when we dream, dream in the dream with me
81 - 82 - 83 - 84
81 - 82 - 83 - 84

New Gold Dream
The siren and the ecstasy, she's the one in front of me
New Gold Dream

No idea what this song is about. First heard it on the Live Album (City of Light). Love it, but don't really know why!

Simon, because of the crashing beat and fantasy :P

Excelent song!

Got to be one of the greatest songs of the 80's!!!

The song is about a new relationship, a new girl, and new dream, its so new is perfect like gold, it's a new gold dream...she's his new siren, his new ecstasy, all his fantasies...the world is alive with the sun in front of him, he's telling her when she dreams, dream him in the dream with her, ...but the city always takes, it gets hot on the streets out there, the fantasy, the relationship goes crashing down, she was his friend until the bitter end when the ocean breaks...

Heard this at the start of Informers film recently - couldn't quite put my finger on the voice tho'. Liked so much I checked the credits at the end to find its name and artist. At 42 I should have remembered it - but then again I was a Heavy Metal fan back at the start of the 80's :)

A true classic. I had a couple of New Gold Dreams in the 80's. Ended up marrying the last one. Lol. A legendary song. I love you Simple Minds.

Happy days , walking in a club and hearing this made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Outstanding.
by Louise on 4/22/2015 3:33pm
Saw them last night in Cambridge. Still magic after hearing this song live more than 30 years ago.
by John on 6/21/2015 1:46pm
Lisa, you're great !
by Craig from Aberdeen on 12/18/2015 2:10am
One of my favourites. First heard it at Meadowbank Stadium, Edinburgh back in '89! Awesome live. Still well into the Minds now!
by Vincent McNally on 1/20/2016 1:49pm
Great song, but disappointed with it on Live in The City of Light album, I don't think they used the keyboard at that concert, still a great song on that album though!
by Navster on 2/21/2016 2:04am
Stands the test of time. Truly awe inspiring.Some of the extended remixes are even better. No wonder it got sampled so many times
by Andy Pizza on 3/23/2016 2:31pm
At the time I thought the song was "OK" and I preferred the later Simple Minds tracks. Then a couple of months ago I got Spotify and I can't stop listening to this track, truly brilliant, timeless. Love Song is darn good too. The older I get, the more I like their earlier stuff.

It's tgeir best run at a Doors style stream of conscious style type psychedelic song. If it was the 60's and they were in California, they'd have written Break On Through. But it wasn't and they weren't, and we got this.
by Alan Mcguire on 5/12/2016 9:02am
Been into the minds since the beginning in 1979. They became the soundtrack to the 80s in my hometown Edinburgh. Lots of brilliant tracks of lots of brilliant albums. But this track still has that something about it. In my all time top 5.
