The new Barenaked Ladies Chrismas album, Barenaked for the Holidays, is excellent.

Footprints
Barenaked Ladies
From the album, Barenaked for the Holidays

I followed footprints in the snow
Never knowing if I was right behind
Looking down no one would know
I wasn't walking hand in hand beside you
For you footprints lead the way
To a hearth where hearts we made surround you
You're 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 you
Though it filled my heart with doubt
Couldn't move and this is where you found me
As our footprints disappear
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 as 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 recieved 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
