Lyrics Edit

(crying sample: Anika)


(verse 1: Helena)

No one told me that someday

I would give birth to someone as great as you

You are the one I hold dear

So, little one, this song is for you

When I held your hand for the first time

I knew we would get along

And never ever ever yeah

Could we ever break apart


(chorus)

And when I saw you for the first time

I knew things were gonna change

You are the one I hold dear

So this song's for you

Anika

Anika

Anika

(verse 2: Helena)

March 2014

Best month of my life

Finding out you are my miracle

Best day of my life

Never gonna stop loving you

My baby, baby

I'm not gonna stop

No, no, no

Yeah oh yeah, baby yeah

Oh yeah yeah, oh yeah yeah

For you, for you yeah

Yeah oh yeah, baby yeah

Anika, nika, nika, nika
