Six pounds five ounces and form without a name
A newborn in the nursery that no one’s yet to claim
Then a man and wife walk in to see the dream that they couldn’t conceive
Started out a pair, now a family of three

Love runs deeper than blood,
Don’t have to share a name to share your heart with someone
Hands make a house, but the heart makes a home
Don’t you know that love runs deeper
Love runs deeper than blood

Curly head kid, ten summers past
First week of school, homework for science class
“Mom why’s my hair not the same as you and Dad’s?”
“Son, we knew someday you were gonna ask.”

You need to know that
Love runs deeper than blood,
Don’t have to share a name to share your heart with someone
Hands make a house, but the heart makes a home
Don’t you know that love runs deeper
Love runs deeper than blood

A new wife of his own, ready to start their home
And fill that lil’ bedroom down the hall
The doctors said they can’t, but there’s another plan
The tears fell when they got the call

Cause they knew that
Love runs deeper than blood,
Don’t have to share a name don’t have to share a name
The heart makes a home
Don’t you know that love runs deeper
Love runs deeper than blood
