****************************************************************

Write it down a thousand times
for a little word that makes me cry.
How I feel about it I can't decide.
No, I don't know, so I'll improvise.
Is it living in our heart or in our mind?
I don't know.

So world, ready or not, here I go
searching for the answer.
And I'm not gonna stop til I find
where it lives inside me.
How does it come to be?
What should it mean to me?
Teach me the definition of true love.

I was so afraid I'd never succeed,
but you made me feel I could do anything.
Memorize the things you would say and do.
Must be loving the strength that I found in you.
Is it living in our heart or in our mind?
I don't know.

So world, ready or not, here I go
searching for the answer.
And I'm not gonna stop til I find
where it lives inside me.
How does it come to be?
What should it mean to me?
Teach me the definition of true love.

Love's not wrong.
It feels good.
True love always believes
and it begins without major risk.
Gonna sacrifice unconditionally.

So world, ready or not, oh here I go
searching for the answer.
And I'm not gonna stop til I find
where it lives inside of me.
How does it come to be?
What should it mean to me?
Teach me the definition of true love.

So world, ready or not, here I go (here I go, oh yeah)
searching for the answer.
And I'm not gonna stop til I find
where it lives inside me.
How does it come to be? (How does it come ...?)
What should it mean to me? (What should it mean ...?)
Teach me the definition of true love.

Thank you.
