"Dream Warriors" is a song by heavy metal band, Dokken, written for the movie A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. The song plays during the credits of the film.

"Dream Warriors" was released as a single from the film and also appeared on the band's album "Back for the Attack." It reached number 22 on the Mainstream Rock charts in 1987.

Music Video

A music video for the song received airplay on MTV. The video used scenes from the movie, as well as new scenes filmed specifically for the video. Patricia Arquette and Robert Englund appeared in the new scenes, playing Kristen Parker and Freddy Krueger, respectively.

In the original scenes, Freddy is tormenting Kristen. She is eventually saved by the band members of Dokken. Their dream power is that their music is able to repel Freddy. Freddy then wakes up in his own bed and screams, revealing that the entire video was his own nightmare. He wonders who the band members of Dokken were as the video closes.

Dokken - Dream Warriors04:47

Dokken - Dream Warriors

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
