Music:Elton John
Lyrics:Tim Rice
It's knowing what they want of me that scares me
It's knowing having followed I must lead
It's knowing that each person here compares me
To the one who has always willed me to succeed
But if I'm only half the woman she was
It's enough, it's enough
Aida, Aida
All we ask of you
Is a lifetime of service, wisdom, courage
To ask more would be selfish
But nothing less will do
Aida, Aida
It's knowing that the robe was worn before you
By one who gave us more than we dared ask
That surely will inspire you, reassure you
Its beauty is our love, its weight your task
I know that you'll be everything that she was
To the dance, to the dance
