KRISTOFFERSON, Kris



Shadows of her mind


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
