Thicker Than Love

(Steve Simpson)
I have three wonderful grown children - Blake, Lydia and Scott, who I love beyond words. And now I have a fourth wonderful child, Baxter, the sweetest little girl on the planet, who I love the same as if she were my biological child. This song is about Baxter and the love I have for her.
Two boys, one girl, no wife for me,
Then they got grown,
And they got gone,
And I got lonely.

I met your mom, and you let me stay,
You taught me,
That family,
Is more than DNA.

Chorus
They say blood runs thicker than water,
And it’s true, we’re not blood,
But through my heart flows one more daughter now,
And nothing runs thicker than love.

Half child, half grown, all tender heart,
I look inside,
Your big brown eyes,
And, my, how wise they are.

That laugh, that look, that smile so sweet,
Take all your nice,
Add mama’s spice,
And now my life’s complete.

(Repeat Chorus)

Your heart had a void in it, and mine did, too,
God filled yours up with me, and mine with you.

(Repeat Chorus)

Through my heart flows one more daughter now,
And nothing runs thicker than love.

Two boys, two girls, and one great wife for me.
