Day 373: Dreaming while you sleep, Genesis

So this song is particularly interesting lyrically for it covers a disturbing theme of a guy who hits a woman in his car while driving home. Out of fear he doesn’t stop but continues on his way. It is clear from the song that the woman is not killed but remains in a permanent coma. Although the hit and run driver escapes justice, he cannot escape his conscience and it is his anguish cry against his conscience that occupies the chorus of the song

All my life I’ll be haunted by
All my life just one moment in time
All my life until the day I die
And it will live inside of me
I will never be free all my life
Trapped in her memory all my life
Till the day that you open your eyes
