Idina Menzel - Wind Beneath My Wings Lyrics

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine.
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.
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.

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,
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,
if you are the wind beneath my wings.

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

Fly, fly.
You're my hero.
Fly, I want you fly.

Idina Menzel Wind Beneath My Wings Comments
  1. Robert Whitaker

    Kind of meh to me. Her voice seems a little thin and nasally. Bette Midler's voice is way more soothing in the original version of the song. I'm not saying Idina's voice is not good, because it is. It's just not soothing.

  2. KayBeWildin


  3. Pain Revenged

    Her voice is the most soothing ive ever heard like wow angels do exist

  4. starbtle

    I love Idina ... but her voice is so much more powerful than this arrangement allows. They should have just let her sing Midler's original version than messing it up like they did on this. Such a bad rendition of a beautiful song. Menzel's beautiful voice is wasted on such a travesty.

  5. Golden Glowie Animations

    "my ears be like"
    Me again:hhhhhnngggg

  6. mariam farzin

    Idina 😍😘

  7. Random Girl

    I imagine Elsa singing something like this

  8. Cheng Wing Yan Emmie

    I can’t believe she’s 48!!! She doesn’t age at all!

  9. zippy blessed

    Very talented

  10. Brooke Martin

    Such a different take on the song..I'm honestly kind of blown away!. 🙆👂👏💕

  11. Dragon Soul

    I haven't heard this song since elementary school!!!!

  12. Miranda Roberts

    So I forgot she did this. The bette Midler version makes me cry. This one i can sing along too without crying.

  13. Slytherin Elphaba Supporter

    Proof that Idina's voice is still the best.
    Fly, Elphaba, FLY!

  14. miss piggy

    anyone else feel like elsa is singing this to anna in frozen? the lyrics describe their sisterhood so perfectly❤️❤️

  15. wms

    My goodness!

  16. JackHammer87

    Am I the only one who pictures Elsa singing when listening to this?

  17. Altonahh10

    It´s a little problematic when you sing a song that has more to it than being done with one vocal color only. Bette Midler has plenty of those, Menzel only one. It´s nicely done but boring to my ears. And then there is always the unavoidable screaming when the chords are about to burst. Stressful and not relaxed. Okay, now hate me ;-)

  18. Desrosier Michelot

    She is AMAZING. Her high notes are breathtaking and she got such an way to pull them out of nowhere

  19. Sara Brown

    My All Time Favorite Song Ever because idina Menzel's Stunning Voice Totally Made Me Shiver in My Heart and Totally Loved her On As Queen Elsa In Frozen and Beaches Movie has been My Favorite Movie of All Time?

  22. Connie Cleveland

  23. Connie Cleveland

    For the beaches bette is the original. And is better. This version is a remake for remake beaches. I seem the original when first came off on cable i was 6. That cable when cable.

  24. Britany Mckenzie

    I’m not one to compare artist because every artist is different and unique in there own way but even I can say when she was hitting them note I hear a little Celine Dion

  25. Delaney Arch

    Does anyone else think she spoke to you when you watched it and instantly fangirled over it I did the ENTIRE time

  26. Delaney Arch

    Who else laughed when she said the baby looked like an octopus or an alien

  27. Jorge Nicolas

    This lady is WAY underrated...and that’s a shame.

  36. Stark Wolf

    I cry everytime i watch beaches new or old

  37. FmMaj9 NoName

    Listen to Gary Morris' version. This version is nasal and shrill, except when she's yell-singing.

  38. joplet1

    The original version was Roger Whittaker, this version just sounds like someone screaming, yuck

  39. Jennifer C

    Kinda cringey

  40. Sylvonne

    I love love love this version! I can’t get enough of listening to it!!!!

  41. Olivia Manville

  43. leigh alger

  44. RJ Spear

    Love Idina's voice, but it just doesn't have the emoting quality for this song.

  45. alexender Alexander

    Amazing cover

  46. Fabricated Reality

    Idina has a beautiful voice but nooooooooo.....

  47. Caroline Cruickshank

    This is the best version

  49. IndianaHankie

    "Adele Dazeem" sounds perfect, as always! Love Idina! <3

  50. Music Sweet

    Oh darn! Celine Dion has a twin!

  51. daniel kelly


  52. Cat Perez

    2018 💋💯❤️

  53. Rampage Knights

    Charice pempengco version is much better compare to idinas

  54. Joy River1999

    I didn't like this version of the song at first (I felt it was a slap in the face to the original by Bette Midler) but as I keep listening to it,I've come to love it.You did great Idina,keep it up.

  55. Sylvonne

    Simply beautiful! I love this version better than the original! Sorry Bette


    Me too!

  56. Raider2Pac

    They edited out GOD

  57. jon

    talent is nothing without empathy !

  58. Mysterious Mouth Stories

    Why does she look so pissed singing this song?

  59. Kanhje xXx

    Im sorry but Bettes version is untouchable. This version has no emotional soul it's just a nice voice singing another song

  60. JT Leon

    What the hell is this, the chipmunks version?

  61. Szpilmann seguel

    Im a hater then , worst perfomance for the worst video

  62. NoblenessDee

    Dont want to be a hater but im not feeling your heart , just hearing ego ..... I DO like that you give it more kick to it than Bett, technically pretty dam good. . just wish you were closer to shedding true tears. Thats the way I think this song should be sung. Best Wishes

  63. Dark Empress

    Idina this is wonderful! I love your voice!!!!!!!!!

  64. LaylaGames12

  65. Ciara O'Neill

    Bad cover can’t beat Bette Midler

  66. Bella aka johnny_boi

    I loved this movie so much omg

  67. Ratipong Natthawirojchanadit

    It must have been colder in my shadow
    To never have sunlight on your face
    You were content to lend me shine
    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
    'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings

    It might have appeared to go unnoticed
    I've got it all here in my heart
    I want you to know I know the truth
    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
    If you are the wind beneath my wings

    Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
    You're my everything, everything I wished I could be
    Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle
    If you, you are the wind beneath my wings
    Oh, beneath my wings

    Fly, fly
    You're my hero
    Fly, won't you fly

  68. Victor -Mostly Molly Furtado

    I love Idina, and everything she sings. One of the best voices in music. She covers this song beautifully. However.....No one will beat Bette's version.

  69. Brian Bommarito

    I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but I like Idina’s cover of this song better than the original version performed by Bette Midler. Both versions are good, and Bette’s version definitely had more orchestration and epic vibe, but for some reason Idina Menzel’s vocals speak more to my heart.

  70. carlo gilbert zamora

    Im disturbed by her jawline. Sarry not sarry

  71. El Diablo

    She is ugly

  72. Josh F

    What's wrong with her? Was her coffee order wrong this morning and she's about to go all Kardashian? I'd insist this be taken down if I were her. Totally embarrassing

    Xhillox 2.0


  73. wheelie1988

    I'm gonna be a downer here. There was afew times I couldn't really understand what she was saying. She is a great singer, but I don't think she should had this song. This is my personal opinion and I normally like her singing.

  74. YouShubes

    I love her voice....but this version does her no favours...

    It is a hard song to make her own

  75. Janet Gonzalez

    She really has a great singing voice I don’t blame her for that

  76. trent's gangreturns2nd (don't give me dislikes)

    Me hearing Elsa singing this song is so touching

  77. Disney65Fan

    I prefer Bette Midler's version. She brought so much meaning to that song it makes me bawl everytime.

  78. Disney65Fan

    Elsa from Frozen. Never knew she was a lefty.

  79. Mimi Singer

    Great cover. Killed it

  80. Alice Wonderland

    Plss sing the song “Never enough” or “This Me” someday plss😭👏🙌

  81. Lola Lee

    Idina's a great singer but this composition really doesn't do her justice

  82. Tasha Coleman


  83. Sara Carrion

    i am at my dads when i see her imma hug her and start crying my mom is my hero she raised me to me some one i love her

  84. Sara Carrion

    this makes me think of my mom i am always disrespectful if my mom died when i was young i will cry myself to sleep

  85. Jean Kilos

    They mest up big. The original film will always be best.

  86. Live and cut bait fishing with Jerry And Max

    Sing it, honey.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Love your voice you sing like an Angel.

  87. Sarah J

    I think I like this better than the original

  88. jhhone

    Why didn't just use the original script? They could've cast the same but the updating thing just didn't serve the story!

  89. Nick Montoya

    Don't worry Idina Menzel AKA Elsa your always my favorite female singer

  90. Pizzazz

    I dont like it. Sorry.

  91. Matthew Ryan

    When she sings 'You're my Hero' towards the end. Wow. And I'm a Bette fan. Enjoy both versions I say.

  92. shabytin

    My queen ❤️

  93. M Luz

    Fly need more emotion like Better Midler do.

  94. karina kaplan

    nope. Bette Midler is the one and only to sing this song.

  95. MegaGug 95

    My mom always said that the original was her song to her mother, but their relationship quickly deteriorated about 10 years ago. When this came out I tried to show her but she couldn’t listen to it because it made her sad. So I told her that while the original may be her song to her mother, but this version is my song to her.

    I can’t help it, I’m a mama’s boy

  96. Deanna Marin

    Bette Mildler sang it much better with total emotion coming out with her singing. the movie itself tore me apart as a kid growing up, but kept my Faith in True lasting friendship.

  97. Jayda Proudlove

    She is so underestimated.

  98. Camilla L-Z Ibsen

    I CRIED! I couldn't stop crying, when i watched the remake. <3 Beautifully made.
