"Footprints" as written by and Sia Furler....
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I've fallen through the floor again, crashed into the basement
Your pain was swallowing me
I was like a leper when I couldn't even get up towards
The lights from the door was swallowing me

Lord knows you can’t trust your head
When you're standing on the edge
I’m breaking down
Lord knows you can’t trust your head
When you're hanging by a thread
I was breaking down

And I saw only two footprints in the sand
Thought you'd abandoned me and
Let go of my hand
But you were carrying me
Carrying me to safety
Two footprints, your footprints in the sand
Two footprints, two footprints, your footprints in the sand
Two footprints, your footprints in the sand

Oh what if I had got the things I knew it was I
Who would have been done with you
Forgive me, I was lost and found
Who would never've left my side
Pick me up when I thought that I would die
You helped me and I was fine

Lord knows you can't trust your head
When you’re standing on the edge
I’m breaking down
Lord knows you can't trust your head
When you’re hanging by a thread
And I'm breaking down

Only two footprints in the sand
Thought you'd abandoned me and
Let go of my hand
But you were carrying me
Carrying me to safety
Two footprints, your footprints in the sand
Only two footprints in the sand
Thought you'd abandoned me and
Let go of my hand
But you were carrying me
Carrying me to safety
Two footprints, your footprints in the sand
Two footprints, two footprints, your footprints in the sand
Two footprints, your footprints in the sand

    My InterpretationI think this song is about when you couldn't remember why you said stop to a relationship, because maybe you could say something like, I don't wanna see you again. But two minutes later you can remember all about your relationship and see what is true, about the love, romance, or something you want in your life. I love this song.

    General CommentThis song is literally that poster of some person walking with god. I think most people know what I'm talking about.

    It's also pretty clear this was written for Beyonce.
