It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You've been content to let me shine
You always walked a step behind.

I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strain
Always a face without a name
I never once heard you complain.

Did you ever know that you were my hero
And everything I would like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle
'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

--- Instrumental ---

It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know, I know the truth
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you were my hero
Everything I would like be
I could fly higher than an eagle
'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

You are the wind beneath my wings...
