04. The Definition Of Me

Freedom
by Mandisa



 

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 want to 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 always fades away
Trends are hot for a second
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
That's the reason that we're here

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

Chorus

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 (no!)
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!

Chorus


(Featuring Blanca from Group 1 Crew) / (1 Peter 3:3-4, Philippians 3:7-11)

Behind the Song:
“Definition of Me” is one of those songs that when I get on my treadmill, I have to blast it and it gets me working like no other. It’ a song, sort of my message from “True Beauty”, the fact that its not how I look, it’s not what people think of me, it’s no even my voice that defines who I am. The definition of me is my father and His love for me and it features Blanca Reyes who’s my hero. She’s from the amazing group called Group 1 Crew and I absolutely love her and I love what she added to this song as well." - Mandisa
