True Colors

Lyrics

play You with the   eyes
play Don't be  
play Oh I  
play It's hard to   courage
play In a world   of people
play You can lose   of it all
play And the   inside you
play Can make you feel so  

play But I see your true colors
play Shining  
play I see your true colors
play And that's why I love you
play So don't be   to let them show
play Your true colors
play True colors are beautiful,
play Like a rainbow

play Show me a smile then,
play Don't be   , can't remember
play When I last saw you  

play If this world makes you  
play And you've taken all you can  
play You call me up
play Because you know I'll be there

play And I'll see your true colors
play Shining through
play I see your true colors
play And that's why I love you
play So don't be afraid to let them show
play Your true colors
play True colors are beautiful,
play Like a rainbow

play Can't remember, when I last saw you laugh.

play If this world makes you crazy
play And you've taken all you can bear
play You call me up
play Because you know I'll be there

play And I'll see your true colors
play Shining through
play I see your true colors
play And that's why I love you
play So don't be afraid to let them show
play Your true colors
play True colors
play True colors are shining through

play I see your true colors
play And that's why I love you
play So don't be afraid to let them show
play Your true colors
play True colors are beautiful,
play Like 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."
