True Colors

Lyrics

playYou with the sad eyes
playDon't be discouraged
playOh I realize
playIt's hard to take courage
playIn a world full of people
playYou can lose sight of it all
playAnd the darkness inside you
playCan make you feel so small

playBut I see your true colors
playShining through
playI see your true colors
playAnd that's why I love you
playSo don't be afraid to let them show
playYour true colors
playTrue colors are beautiful,
playLike a rainbow

playShow me a smile then,
playDon't be unhappy, can't remember
playWhen I last saw you laughing

playIf this world makes you crazy
playAnd you've taken all you can bear
playYou call me up
playBecause you know I'll be there

playAnd I'll see your true colors
playShining through
playI see your true colors
playAnd that's why I love you
playSo don't be afraid to let them show
playYour true colors
playTrue colors are beautiful,
playLike a rainbow

playCan't remember, when I last saw you laugh.

playIf this world makes you crazy
playAnd you've taken all you can bear
playYou call me up
playBecause you know I'll be there

playAnd I'll see your true colors
playShining through
playI see your true colors
playAnd that's why I love you
playSo don't be afraid to let them show
playYour true colors
playTrue colors
playTrue colors are shining through

playI see your true colors
playAnd that's why I love you
playSo don't be afraid to let them show
playYour true colors
playTrue colors are beautiful,
playLike a rainbow

"On 'True Colors' I had this verse and it was written about my mother: 'You've got a long list with so many choices, a ventriloquist with so many voices, and your friends in high places say where the pieces fit, you've got too many faces in your makeup kit, but I see your true colors shining through,' then it went on with the same chorus that the song has."
