The Wind Beneath My Wings

(Music:  "The Wind Beneath My Wings" by Mary Beth Carlson)



It must have been cold there in my shadow,

to never have sunlight on your face.

You were content to let me shine, thatís 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 youíre my hero,

youíre everything I wish I could be.

I can fly higher than an eagle,

but you are the wind beneath my wings.


It might have appeared to go unnoticed,

but Iíve got it all here in my mind.

I want you to know I know the truth,

of course I know I would be nothing without you.


Thank you, thank you, thank God for you,

the wind beneath my wings.
