I've followed footprints in the snow
Never knowing if I was right behind you
Looking down no one would know
I wasn't walking hand in hand beside you
For your footprints lead the way
To a hearth where hearts we made surround you
You are awash in all its glow
And I'm still standing in the snow

I stood and watched the lights go out
While the snowflakes settled all around me
Though it filled my heart with doubt
Couldn't move and this is where you found me
As our footprints disappeared
Snow erasing how I came to be here
I've got nowhere else to go
Now you're standing
In the snow
Look for understanding
In the snow
You look just outstanding
In the snow
Standing in the snow

Now it's almost Christmas Eve
I'm surrounded with the sound of laughter
To give is better than to deceive
For I received a happy ever after
You might have left me in the cold
A fitting ending for the fool that I was
But you'd be cuddled up alone
And I'd still be standing in the snow
