Nana Mouskouri – The Wind Beneath My Wings lyrics


It must have been cold there in my shadow

To never have sunlight on your face

You were content to let me shine, that's your way

You always walked a step behind


So I was the one with all the glory

While you were the one with all the strength

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

'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings

(The wind beneath my wings)


It might have appeared to go unnoted

But I've got it all here in my heart

I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know

I would be nothing without you

Repeat 3 x 2


Did I ever tell you you're my hero

You're everything, everything I wish I could be

And I, I can fly higher than an eagle

For you are the wind beneath my wings

'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings

Fly, fly, fly away away

You let me fly so high

Fly, fly

The wind beneath my wings,

The wind beneatth my wings

Fly, fly

So high Iget through the sky

So high I almost touch the sky

Thank you, thank you

Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings
