Kris Kristofferson - Shadows Of Her Mind Lyrics




I met her sadly in the slowly falling rain
Crying softly in her loneliness and pain
Knowing no one needin' someone bad as me
And she told me as I held her trembling hand
Walking slowly how she'd never known a man
Living lonely in her cottage by the sea

When the morning came her tears had changed to laughter
And before the night her heart beat close to mine
And I thought as she lay sleeping bout the secrets she was keeping
Hidden somewhere in the silence of the shadows of her mind

In the morning as I wakened with the dawn
Without warning I could feel that she was gone
Leaving nothing but her silence next to me
And lonely footprints that I followed in the sand
Walking slowly for I knew where they would end
Disappearing in the silence of the sea

And I sometimes hear the echo of her laughter
As I search for what I know I'll never find
For the answer I was seeking was the secrets she's still keeping
Hidden somewhere in the silence of the shadows of her mind

Hidden somewhere in the silence of the shadows of her mind

Kris Kristofferson Shadows Of Her Mind Comments
  1. HMichael Hawkins

    Did she commit suicide? It sounds like a woman who suffered from bi-polar mental illness. He met her when she was sad and crying. The next morning she was happy. What was "...the silence of the shadows of her mind?"

  2. Anne Milne

    Just genius the best lyrics ever written 💋🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  3. Sally Swanes

    Never heard this song before

  4. Jim Brannan

    I saw Kris Kristofferson in Glasgow tonight 20th June 2019.

    The background was a black curtain.

    The lighting was just enough to illuminate the performers. No strobes and flashing beams.

    No chat and awkward jokes between the songs.

    Just the master telling his stories in his songs with a captivated audience.

    Saw Kris earlier this year, old, croaky, laid-back, and utterly brilliant.

    pistroliakrazies

    I'm going to see him in a month! I am so looking forward to it, I have loved this man my whole life. Thanks mom for introducing me this brilliant, true talented singer and writer!

    My cousin and her husband recently took a trip to Hawaii, having no idea that Kris lived there. As they were walking around shopping, they happened to see Kris and his wife walking along, holding hands. Both my cousin and I used to have a major “crush” on Kris, and had unsuccessfully tried to meet him for an autograph after a concert he gave in 1974. My cousin could not resist going up to Kris to introduce herself and to tell him our story. He apologized and they talked for a little while. Then, to make up for my cousin’s prior experience, he actually invited my cousin and her hubby to have lunch with him and his wife. The four got along fabulously, and lunch turned into a 2 hour “gab fest” between the four of them. My cousin brought home several pictures of the meeting for everyone of us to enjoy. She said that both he and his wife could not have been more kind, welcoming or courteous. I have to admit that I was just a little jealous! I always knew that Kris was a great songwriter and singer, but he is also a wonderful man!

    I met her sadly in the slowly falling rain
    Crying softly in her loneliness and pain
    Knowing no one needin' someone bad as me
    And she told me as I held her trembling hand
    Walking slowly how she'd never known a man
    Living lonely in her cottage by the sea.

    When the morning came her tears had changed to laughter
    And before the night her heart beat close to mine
    And I thought as she lay sleeping bout the secrets she was keeping
    Hidden somewhere in the silence of the shadows of her mind.

    In the morning as I wakened with the dawn
    Without warning I could feel that she was gone
    Leaving nothing but her silence next to me
    And lonely footprints that I followed in the sand
    Walking slowly for I knew where they would end
    Disappearing in the silence of the sea.

    And I sometimes hear the echoe of her laughter
    As I search for what I know I'll never find
    For the answer I was seeking was the secrets she's still keeping
    Hidden somewhere in the silence of the shadows of her mind.

    Hidden somewhere in the silence of the shadows of her mind...

  24. Elena B

    Love this song!!!

  25. berikeren

    זה מאוד דומה לשיר לאהוב אותה היה קל מאוד, ונכתב באותה תקופה.
    יש לו יותר מכמה שירים שדומים אחד לשני, בסך הכל אם הוא גונב
    מעצמו זה בסדר, מראה על יצירה, הוריי כריס!

  26. Peter Barker

    My Wife was taken by Alzheimer's.
    Thank you Mr. Kristofferson,
    You nailed it, without hardly trying - a sign of a great baladere or Boarder Guard..

  27. P SCHLUETER
