Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight moves me because to me the lyrics sound like someone confronting their perp:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gz7gajAb2ww

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord
Ive been waiting for this moment, all my life, oh lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord, oh lord

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
Ive seen your face before my friend
But I dont know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where youve been
Its all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord
Ive been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh lord, oh lord
And Ive been waiting for this moment all my life, oh lord, oh lord

Well I remember, I remember dont worry
How could I ever forget, its the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you dont fool me
The hurt doesnt show; but the pain still grows
Its no stranger to you or me

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord...

I've always loved this song as well, never really listened to the lyrics all that close, but seeing them in print, you're right. It definitely is something I can feel and relate to.

Thanks!

This line always got me since I had seen many things my abuser did to many people. I always felt like this song was about his day of reckoning. Fortunately for many that day came and he is behind bars.
