You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh, I realize
It's hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors
Are beautiful like a rainbow

Show me a smile then,
Don't be unhappy
Can't remember when
I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there

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


(Can't remember when I last saw you laughing)

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

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

I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors
Are beautiful like a rainbow

    about 26 years ago, I met the most amazing person. We have been through thick and thin together, spent years apart and always managed to stay friends. I know that even if I don't talk to her for long periods of time, I can pick up the phone and its like we spoke yesterday. Here's wishing you an amazing birthday, Amy LeFevre Freier Rice.... I love you.

    This song is the song that my life-partner and i pick to let us know why we both fell some in love with each other. As he would tell me that our colors made the rainbow and our love made it shine. He pass away this year due to liver cancer. We were bonded for ten years. I miss him.

    I am reading your comment going, you haven't know Matt for 26 years. Thank you. I love you too. But you need my new phone number 435 233 8591. The most amazing thing is we made it out of adolescence alive and without criminal records. Never want to go through that shit again but I glad I had you to help me through the first time.

    Speaking for the senior citizens, the young really know how we really tried , and cared although we tried to make them fit into society we loved them unconditionally and they knew. As a teacher even though we followed the rules and tried to be objective kids knew who were sincere ,they could see and feel our true colors!
