Footprints In The Sand by Leona Lewis

What do you think?

‘Footprints In The Sand’ was inspired by the poem/prose ‘Footprints‘ which describes a person’s walk with God throughout their life. 

According to Songfacts, X-Factor and American Idol judge Simon Cowell approached Leona Lewis with the idea to write a song based on Footprints. Leona was enthusiastic about the idea. It was released as a Double A-Side single along with ‘Better In Time’ in 2008 as a charity fundraiser.

Lyrics

You walked with me
Footprints in the sand
And helped me understand
Where I’m going
You walked with me
When I was all alone
With so much unknown
Along the way
I heard you say
I promise you
I’m always there
When your heart is filled with sorrow
And despair
And I’ll carry you
When you need a friend
You’ll find my footprints in the sand

I see my life
Flash across the sky

So many times have I
Been so afraid
And just when I
Thought I lost my way
You gave me strength to carry on
Thats when I heard you say
I promise you

I’m always there 

 
When your heart is filled with sorrow and despair
And I’ll carry you
When you need a friend
You’ll find my footprints in the sand
When I’m weary
Well I know you’ll be there
And I can feel you
When you say
I promise you
I’m always there
When your heart is filled with sadness and despair
And I’ll carry you
When you need a friend
You’ll find my footprints in the sand
When your heart is full of sadness and despair
And I’ll carry you
When you need a friend
You’ll find my footprints in the sand
