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. 
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 
If 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 with out you 

Fly, fly, fly away 
You let me fly so high 
Oh, fly, fly 
So high against the sky 
So high I almost touch the sky 
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you 
The wind beneath my wings
