Perry Como - "The Wind Beneath My Wings" lyrics

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
To never have sunlight on your face'
Youve 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 youre my hero'
And everything Id like to be'
I can fly higher than an eagle,
Cause you are the wind beneath my wings!

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
But Ive got it all here in my heart!
I want you to know I know the truth,
I would be nothin without you!

Did you ever know that youre my hero'
And everything Id like to be'
I can fly higher than an eagle,
Cause you are the wind beneath my wings,

You are the wind beneath my wings!
