I dropped all that baggage / Let go of that habit / The pain you can have it / Cause now Im content with me / Im lovin this skin / And I got a good man / Feels
like the beginning / Now Im content with me // Its hard to explain it / Been through it, you name it / The heartache and break / And the shame / Played that game
but I / Cant seem to win / I started to think / Something was wrong with me / Til I was finally introduced to happy // Ive made the greatest discovery / Of mankind
/ You define / The existence of love / And I found it in you / Searched my whole life through / So rare but so true / The definition of love is you / (The definition,
baby is you) // I traded that frown in / Bought me a brand new smile / Im wearing it proudly / Cause now Im content with me / No longer uncertain / Im sure
of the verdict / Im free and I love it / Cause now Im content with me // Its hard to explain it / Been through it, you name it / The heartache and break / And the
shame / Played that game but I / Couldnt seem to win / I started to think / Something was wrong with me / Til I was finally introduced to happy // Ive made the
greatest discovery / Of mankind / You define / The existence of love / And I found it in you / Searched my whole life through / So rare but so true / The definition
of love is you / (The definition, baby is you) // Ive been digging for years / Could barely see past the tears / Cause I thought my heart had disappeared / But until
you, came into my life / Made me anew / Showed me the truth // Ive made the greatest discovery / Of mankind / You define / The existence of love / And I found
it in you / Searched my whole life through / So rare but so true / The definition of love is you / (The definition, baby is you) / Is Defined By You

Dont shatter my heart // Never knew that love could be so epic / But you saved me cause youre heroic / Legend has it that youve earned this throne / Since
you came and pulled the sword out of the stone / Many driver couldnt weather the storm / You came in my life and turned the lights on / The way you took me
baby I couldnt resist / So I present you with my most precious gift // I put my love in a jar / In my heart like a piggy bank / Im giving it to you / So whatever
you do / Dont shatter my heart // Emergency / Dont break the glass, call me / Our love can save anything like the Father, believe me / I gave you my all cause
/ My heart makes me stronger / If you pour into it, I can go even harder // Love in a jar / In my heart like a piggy bank / Im giving it to you / So whatever you
do / Dont shatter my heart
