Everybody's got an opinion
Of what they want me to be
Everybody's got a condition
That I may never meet

So tired of looking in the mirror
It always says the same thing
I wanna be about something different
Something more than the mirror can see

Like joy, peace alive in me
When it comes to my identity

I want the love, I want the light
I want the beauty on the inside
I want the one that you can't see
To be the definition of me

More than the face, more than the girl
More than the voice, more than the world
I want the truth that I believe
To be the definition of me

Pretty is cool for a minute
But it will always fade away
Trends are hot for a second
But they'll be gone the very next day

So before you get lost in the moment
Let's get one thing clear
Only love will last forever
It's the reason that we're here

It's up to you 'cause everybody's looking
Who do you want them to see?

I want the love, I want the light
I want the beauty on the inside
I want the one that you can't see
To be the definition of me

More than the face, more than the girl
More than the voice, more than the world
I want the truth that I believe
To be the definition of me

They say I'm cute with the boots and the trendy attire
You kinda reminiscent of a younger Mariah
But do they see beyond what I got, what I rock
They'd be shocked if they knew it was my soul that was hot

Hot boys don't affect my own self-respect
And neither do the magazines and vanity tests
Yo Disa make a list, who's fly and what's next
Start it off with love, joy, peace and end it with blessed, muah

I want the love, I want the light
I want the beauty on the inside
I want the one that you can't see
To be the definition of me

More than the face, more than the girl
More than the voice, more than the world
I want the truth that I believe
To be the definition of me

I want you to be the definition
Def, def, definition
I want you to be the definition
Definition of me

I want you to be the definition
Def, def, definition
I want you to be the definition
Definition of me

    That people see jesus when they see me. Not my clothes, house, where i live, work or what i drive... To see the love of christ reflected through my life in action not just by words i say.
