Dreaming While You Sleep

Album: We Can't Dance (1991)
  • In this song, the narrator is driving at night while tired, and in a moment of inattention, he hits a young lady who's just stepped off the street. Instead of staying, he leaves the scene of the crime. The man then visits the woman, who's now in a coma, at the hospital and hopes she'll wake up someday. >>
