I 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.
Your awash in all it's glow.
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.
I couldn't move and this was where you found me.

As our footprints disappear.
Snow erasing how I came to be here.
I've got no where else to go
Now your standing in the snow

Look for understanding in the snow
You look just outstanding in the snow
Standing in the snow.

(instrumental)

Now it's almost Christmas Eve and
I'm surrounded with the sound of laughter
To give is better then 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.
