It must have been cold there in my shadow,
To never have sunlight on your face.
You were 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 strength.
A beautiful face without a name -- for so long,
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.
*Did you ever know that you're my hero,
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
You are the wind beneath my wings.*
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, of course I know it,
I would be nothing without you.
