Lyrics

He ain’t got my smile, that don’t bother me a bit
He’s got somebody else’s eyes I’m seein’ myself in
I’m holdin’ onto every moment, God knows I’ve missed a few
The day we met, I knew I had some catchin’ up to do

He ain’t my blood, ain’t got my name
But if he did, I’d feel the same
I wasn’t there for his first steps
But I ain’t missed a ball game yet
And that ain’t ever gonna change
I could never walk away
Yeah, he’s my son and that’s my choice
He ain’t my blood, but he’s my, he’s my boy

It hit me like a train, the first time he called me dad
In a three stick figure crayon picture with all of us holdin’ hands
His mama said, “I understand if it’s too soon for this”
I didn’t let her finish, I took it to the kitchen and I stuck it on the fridge, yeah

He ain’t my blood, ain’t got my name
But if he did, I’d feel the same
I wasn’t there for his first steps
But I ain’t missed a ball game yet
And that ain’t ever gonna change
I could never walk away
Yeah, he’s my son and that’s my choice
He ain’t my blood, but he’s my, he’s my boy

He’s Saturday morning cartoons
He’s, “Hey, can I sleep in your room?”
He’s bigger than the plans I had
He’s makin’ me a better man

He ain’t my blood, ain’t got my name
But if he did, I’d feel the same
I wasn’t there for his first steps
But I ain’t missed a ball game yet
And that ain’t ever gonna change
I could never walk away
Yeah, he’s my son and that’s my choice
He ain’t my blood, but he’s my, he’s my boy
Yeah, he’s my, he’s my boy
