  • In and out of darkness, in and out of sleep
    Trying to keep my hands upon the wheel
    Never saw the corner in the driving rain
    I never saw her step into the street

    [Chorus]
    Dreaming while you sleep
    Dreaming while you sleep
    Memories to keep
    Dreaming while you sleep

    I can never understand what went through my mind
    I didn't stop to see what I had done
    I had to keep on driving deep into the night
    The miles between would somehow put it right

    [Chorus]

    All my life you lie silently there
    All my life in a world so unfair
    All my life and only I'll know why
    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
    Please open your eyes

    Dreaming while you sleep
    Dreaming while you sleep

    Heard it on the radio, saw it on TV
    But could I take my secret to the grave
    If I had another chance, would I do the same

    Dreaming while you sleep
    Dreaming while you sleep
    Dreaming while you sleep
    Are you dreaming while you sleep?

    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

    All of my life you lie silently there
    All my life in a world so unfair
    All my life and only I know why
    And it will live inside of me
    I will never be free all my live
    Trapped in her memory all my life
    'Till the day that you open your eyes Writer/s: Anthony George Banks, Michael Rutherford, Phillip David Charles Collins
