Echo & The Bunnymen - Nocturnal Me Lyrics




In an ice-capped fire
Of burning wood
In our world of wire
Ignite our dreams of starry skies
And you and me
As realised our bigger themes

Oh, take me internally
Forever yours
Nocturnal me
Take me internally
Forever yours
Nocturnal me

Do or die
What's done is done
True beauty lies
On the blue horizon

Who or why
What's one is one
In pure disguise
Of vulgar sons

Oh, take me internally
Forever yours
Nocturnal me
Take me internally
Forever yours
Nocturnal me

Whatever burns burns eternally
So take me in turns internally
When I'm on fire
My body will be
Forever yours
Nocturnal me

In an ice-capped fire
Of burning wood
In our world of wire
Ignite our dreams of starry skies
And you and me
As realised our bigger themes

Oh, take me internally
Forever yours
Nocturnal me
Take me internally
Forever yours
Nocturnal me

Echo & The Bunnymen Nocturnal Me Comments
  1. Nathan Wheeler

    Listened to this on my Sony Walkman on my way to swim practice in the late 80’s. On a side note...also met Robert Downey and Michael Anthony Hall during filming Johnny Be Good. The late 80’s were excellent. Music was the best it could ever be.

  2. Genaro Benchoame

    Y remember STRANGER THINGS

  3. KillforPeace69

    What the the fuck was Stranger Days. I 'm here for Echo. For fox sake

  4. Scott Herrmann

    Ocean Rain is a masterpiece!

  5. Pavel Pavel

    Stranger Things S01E05

  6. Audrey B

    I first found this from stranger things and loved it, then got obsessed with ghost and their cover, now I’m addicted to all three

  7. Jordan Murray

    Glad my parents showed me this like 15 years ago, brilliant album

  8. Kevin Bennett

    we did debate if homo sapiens was nocturnal or diurnal and i on behalf of the former

  9. Izzy M

    I didn't even know this song was in stranger things until I looked at the comments on this video.

  10. Taeisnotlistening

    I’m here from mixtape because reddie made me sob thank you thats all

    Jolynn Stanley

    Taeisnotlistening me too

  11. Caio AWOLs

    I never heard this song in my life.

  12. GINA CUSTODIO

    An immortal masterpiece!! Thank you Stranger Things for bringing back memories!!

  13. Lean Mean Green Bean Machine

    Western vibes

  14. batman in a bikini

    Everyone is here from ghost and stranger Things and I'm here from a reddie fan fiction

  15. TheTuta99

    this thread has some of the most creative comments i have ever seen

  16. Püré Csótány

    Are there songs similar to this bc from the whole band this is the one and only track I like ;-;

  17. freddy noriega

    I'm here because i used to own this music when we used to go to the record store and bought the tape...

  18. cino a.

    mixtape vibes.

  19. Jonathan Figueroa

    Ocean Rain brought me here

  20. JenniferOcious79

    Why must what "brought you here" bombard the comments? Aren't there other things to talk about when you see other people like what you do? Maybe have a discussion about the musical art we're damned lucky we live where we can even choose what we want to listen to? It's not important how you got here. BE HERE. HEAR. LISTEN.

  21. IndoSmoke151 FREE

    Not here cuz of a show. Or cover here cuz; I'm an 80s baby heard this in 1984 ,its about staying up all night ,Ian said an a interview ;

  22. Concrete Watershed

    A timeless song!

  23. Bird bird

    D3ATH R0W99

    @Adriana freitas ok but honestly am I the only one that likes this version a bit more than Ghost? It has more **feeling** to it

  49. MrChickenStrips

    Yeah, Ghost and Stranger Things.
    But I remember starting like this band thanks to Donnie Darko...

  50. Iheartagoodstory

    heard this during a dark october night, driving home from work while changing stations. . . . what luck! :D

  51. Jacob Stinnett

    Where are my Echo and the Bunnymen fans at?
    Because I don’t relate to the other assholes from my generation, so....

    *sorry a lame ass Netflix show brought you here*
    *sorry you’re a fan of a band that NO ONE listens to*
    *sorry your taste is shit*

    a Romanian empiric/vampiric love song of lost innocence into darkness shielded by doubt and grief

  65. Two for None

    I came from stranger things but this is actually AMAZING

    Jordan Adams

    Two for None what episode ??

    nudel

    @Jordan Adams Season 1, Episode 5

  66. Gabriel Vasquez

    I'm sorry but I like Ghost's cover of this song better because the vocals are way smoother

    OpusPapaIII

    And it's a lot heavier

    Dalton Williams

    You should be sorry

    Theyan Collyer

    The vocals in this are far superior and match the vibe of the song.

  67. Rachel White

    Who was a fan before ghost or stranger things? I adore echo and the bunnymen.

    Wolfdragon92584

    I was raised on Ocean Rain. But hey, if a popular show can introduce these kids to some good music, so be it.

  68. bakemaster

    Reddit brought me here r/ghostbc

  69. Detective Rose

    I brought myself here. Still love Stranger Things, but not a fan of Ghost nor their cover though.

  70. aina morena

    Pues yo vengo por Ghost 😂 no por Stranger things

  79. Wuncler Laufenbum Cornelius Ulysses Albrecht LVX

    This is one of those song that I wish I knew what the lyrics were about.

  85. Justin Freise

    Any one else like this song before stranger things, but still appreciate it being used?

    NinjaPirateCommander

    Yeah, Echo fan for decades! Suprised to see this song on Stranger Things.

    Jonathan Thomas

    I heard the Ghost cover before Stranger Things ever came out, this is good but Ghost's is great. Tobias has a great voice

    Fatty Boombalatty

    Jonathan Thomas Ian McCulloch’s voice ain’t too shabby. What I find interesting is despite the internet many young people aren’t aware that a lot of their favorite songs are covers. Just today I was explaining that the song Tennessee Whiskey was originally recorded by David Allen Coe and not Chris Stapleton.

    Jonathan Thomas

    @Fatty Boombalatty well, I continue the trend of the youth because I did not know that. I know that Marylin Manson covered Sweet Dreams though, so thats gotta count for something, right?

    Mercado

    Yep, doesn’t need to be said just like a lot of things in the digital age

  86. Gracie Garlock

    you guys are here from stranger things while i'm here from ghost's cover of this song.

  94. stephen the dude

    metal as fuck

    Dalton Williams

    2 years late. But imagine a slamming death metal cover of this song

  95. Christy Nelson

    ghost did a good cover.

    Derek Albert

    Christy Nelson definitely prefer the Ghost one. but the style it was done in is MUCH more my taste so it makes sense I would like it more. sort of like their cover of Abba's I'm a Marionette.

  96. Gray Whit

    Mouthbreather...

    James R

    What’s a mouthbreather?

    Ludwig van Beethoven

    Bad guys

  97. Ben Mortenson

    Thanks, Stranger Things.
