Tyra I've lost many times I've missed out on many opportunities I have failed on so many things I said I would do But this time, I'm going to win with you Your father surely can't be better than all the rest But I promise that for you I will always do my best If you ever see me fall in an attempt to win Just know that I'll get right back up and try again I'll never give up, because you are my goal You are the only one who makes me feel whole You are my gift from above I know this is true And Tyra, without a second thought I would die for you I don't ever want you to need for anything If you need me and can't say the words just hum or sing You might not see my face but I'll be in the air No matter what I'll always be there You are my second chance to have the perfect life I will keep hold of your hand until you become someone's wife It was a long, cold road to get you in my arms Now that you are here, I'll forever keep you warm I'm not tired, we've only just begun I'm still fighting for you even though technically I've already won I've lost so many times, even come in last place But with you my beautiful daughter, I'm finally winning the race.
