6. We now have some boys singing a song – 
Wind Beneath My Wings.

1. 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.
Abeautiful smile to hide the pain.

CH. 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.

2. It might have appeared to go unnoticed
but I’ve got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know, Iknow the truth of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you
