"Wind Beneath My Wings" as written by Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley....
Ohhhh, oh, oh, oh, ohhh.
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?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
For 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 without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
For 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.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
So high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.

    General CommentThis song means more to me than anyone will ever know. This song was played at my teachers funeral last June when she was killed in a car wreck. She was the kindest sweetest most hardworking person I will ever know. I think of her all the time, she was the wind beneath my wings.

    General Commenti think this song means she has someone who always helps her and is considered her hero and her idol. I think everyone should have someone like she does.

    General CommentLaDyJ529: I understand how you feel. When one of my friends was killed last November my tacher gave me a copy of this song saying that I was the wind beneath her wings. (my friend was also one of her students) Little did she know that she was the one who actually gave me strength.

    General Commentthis song played at my grandpa's funeral 12 years ago, i can't hear it without tearing up. i think its the purpose of life, find someone you complement or that complments you. we all need a 'wingman'/partner in crime - so to speak

    i've seen it in my grandparents and parents, i can only hope to find it myself

    General CommentThis song is beautiful and has so mny diifernet meanings to people.It makes me think of the shit i put my mum through wen i was a teenager and how i made her feel nothing she ever did was good enough even though she only wanted the best for me. It also makes a good soundtrack for beaches as it describes the pain of losing a friend.
