the wind beneath my wings lyrics – nana mouskouri

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

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

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

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 beneath my wings
fly, fly, so high i get through the sky
so high i almost touch the sky thank you, thank you
thank god for you, the wind beneath my wings
