“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. 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, and everything I would like to be? I can fly higher than an eagle, For You Are the Wind Beneath My Wings.”
