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 darkness still inside you
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.

(Ah ah ah...)

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 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

Ah ah ah ah...

Spoken: Can't remember when I last saw you laughing

If this world makes you crazy
You've taken all you can bear
You call me up (Call me up! )
Because you know I'll be there (Know I'll be there)

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

    It reminds me of my abuelo who past away recently and it was so hard on me ecause I am only 10, but not only that when I think of him I cry but itakes me happy because matter what show our true self. My abuelo used to always tell me to show my true colors even when I am sad and people wanna change me, and try and make me different, but you can always make new friends and have more loved ones and also be remmembered as myself. .

    I think that true colors sends the message that you have to be yourself. You have to smile and be happy. Another wise man once said "when you worry, your face will frown, and that will bring everybody down" bobby mcferrin
    you have to smile and be happy. Sometimes you just need a little push from a friend of a classmate. I sang this to my best friend when she was going through a hard time with grades. She was still sad about her grade but she learned that she shouldn't it get to her that she can't have fun with her friends. I really enjoy this song and I hope you will too.

    True colors means that everyone is special in their own way and has their own dreams but in this big old world its easy to lose track of who you are. Whether its because your afraid to be yourself or you're trying to please someone but being yourself will make yourself happy and show others the true you. The beautiful special unbelievable you, so others can see why you are loved by so many and they can love you too.

    True colours is for the person who feels like they're not good enough, not strong enough, not beautiful. It's to show them they are good enough, strong enough, and most definately truly beautiful. Its for the friend who feels like they can't do it anymore. They will always be able to perservere when they call on there friends who care about them the most. Who will strive for them and will help show their innter beauty and talent. Everyone is beautiful in there own way and we each other to help us release that beauty.
