Somebody Nobody Knows
Kris Kristofferson Lyrics


Alone in a bathroom a young girl is sitting
And smiling at nothing at all
And she stares now and then at the eyes of the men
In the mirror that hangs on the wall
She's waiting for someone and knowing there's no one
Who cares if she comes or she goes
Just a soul in the shadows the world never sees
She's somebody nobody knows
Chorus:
Someone no one's ever known
Crying where no one can hear
Somebody's dying alone
In a city where nobody cares
Down in the gutter an old man has fallen
Like somebody the world threw away
And the late crowd was leaving, and nobody even
Took the time to look down where he lay
The old man was crying and helplessly trying
To wipe off the stain from his clothes
Just a soul in the shadows that life left behind
He's somebody nobody knows
Chorus:
Someone no one's ever known
Crying where no one can hear
Somebody's dying alone
In a city where nobody cares

LEVY loup-noé

Alone in a bathroom a young girl is sitting
And smiling at nothing at all
And she stares now and then at the eyes of the men
In the mirror that hangs on the wall
She's waiting for someone and knowing there's no one
Who cares if she comes or she goes
Just a soul in the shadows the world never sees
She's somebody nobody knows
Chorus:
Someone no one's ever known
Crying where no one can hear
Somebody's dying alone
In a city where nobody cares
Down in the gutter an old man has fallen
Like somebody the world threw away
And the late crowd was leaving, and nobody even
Took the time to look down where he lay
The old man was crying and helplessly trying
To wipe off the stain from his clothes
Just a soul in the shadows that life left behind
He's somebody nobody knows
Chorus:
Someone no one's ever known
Crying where no one can hear
Somebody's dying alone
In a city where nobody cares

Met him once. He sat in my living room in Monroe, Louisiana, borrowed my guitar and sang Bobby Magee for me. That was the highlight of my young life! I’m 76 years old now and it’s still the highlight!

I can understand why! That's amazing!

some of Kris's songs are so beautiful that you feel like something's crushing your heart and a lump in your throat

Whenever my life starts to spiral out of control, I put on Kris and I'm grounded again.  I've been listening to his music since highschool and I'm 64.  So his music has given me so much enjoyment in my life.  I've listened to alot of music in my lifetime but Kris's music has always had meaning and depth.  He'll always be my favorite.  I feel blessed to have been given his gift of music.  Thank you Kris.

In 1967 my husband kidnapped our 4 children and it was over 6 months to find them. "Sunday Morning Coming down" came out. just sounded like me. I had one more son, not by the kidnapper, but I named him Kristoffer....I am 75

Kris and Anne - absolutely - those two can bring the memories pouring back - I'm 70 - they've been a part of my life since forever and can express my thoughts far better than I can.

Dee Hubler you are so right! xoxo

I cannot agree with you more. I am 53. I cannot even fold laundry with KK On. He just takes me, into ... The terrifying thing KK will not live forever. There will come a day, when we will be left with what we have. THANK GOD. But there will be No Hope of just ONE MORE, bone chilling thought put to bone chilling music. There are others, but Top KK and Anne Murray. I have my Blues Icons, but they were gone, before I came along. T Graham Brown is RIght up there. Joe Cocker passing hit me like a rock. With all of this Tech, I hope i will NEVER see the day, I cannot put the cd's i first bought in vinyl in my ears and disappear.

I'm sixty three and have been listening to Kris since I was 16. He's always been my favourite as well for the same reasons as yourself Dee. He's always had sellout tours here in Ireland but unfortunalely he'll hardly be back here due to his health. I echo your sentiment of Thank you Kris for your poetry in music.
