"Hold Me" as written by Rick Rhodes, Donald Henri Grusin, Dominic Anthony Messinger and Patti Austin....
Shall we walk?
Shall we run?
Through my head
You understand
Does the body you conceal
Need the touch of someone's hand?
Ashes, violations--
Who would they burn for?
In your isolation...
Why can't you see?
I wonder if the lights out
I wonder if they're listening
Hold me
Lay your shame away
Show me
Where your lovers stay
Hold me
Lay your ghosts away
Show me
For yourself
You are lost
And alone
But a prisoner of your pride
When the passions you ignore
You can never hide
One of these days
You're going to find out
'Cause one of these days
You're going to try
And what did I say
To make you wind up
With this spear of guilt inside
I wonder if the lights out
I wonder if they're listening
Hold me
Lay your shame away
Show me
Where your lovers stay
Hold me
Lay your ghosts away
Show me
For yourself

    General CommentI think this song is about communication. I think the members of Duran Duran are especially big on that now, they know what bottling things up and going with the flow can result in, from what I've heard them say. Simon has said the key to a good marriage is never letting anything get in between you, not letting things build up. As for this song, Simon has said this song is about "secrets". So I think it's about being honest with whomever you love.

    My OpinionThis is one of my all-time favourite Duran tracks and I am really surprised this wasn't a single release. With its driving rock beat it would have been a lot more radio-friendly than Skin Trade which is a great album track but not really a single.
