It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You 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 strength
Only a face without a name
I never once heard you complain

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I'd like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle
With you as the wind beneath my wings

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

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I'd like to be
I can fly higher, higher than an eagle
With you as the wind beneath my wings

For you are the wind beneath my wings, oh baby
