Cindi Lauper--'True Colors'

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
The darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

Show me a smile then
Don't be unhappy
Can't remember when
I last saw you laughing
This world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
Just, call me up
'Cause I will always 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
I see your true colors
Shining through (true colors)
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
Ooh ooh ooh like a rainbow

Ooh can't remember when
I last saw you laughing
Ooh oh oh
This world makes you crazy
Taking all you can bear
Just, call me up
'Cause I'll be always 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 (don't be afraid) 
To let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow
Ooh ooh oh like a rainbow


 

 NOT 'True Colors'

You with those lying eyes,
so discouraging, you don't realize
it's hard to fake wisdom,
'cause there's so many people,

who won't ever lose sight of
The darkness inside you

You're so damn small

Show us your reptilian smile,
you're so damn unhappy,

can't remember when
was the last time you told the truth?
Your lying makes us crazy,
and we've taken all we can bear
Just never forget, we'll always be there,
'cause we see your true colors,
Shining through.
we see your true colors,
and that's why we loathe you

Be very afraid to let them show,
your true colors
you're true colors, for us all to see,
We see your true colors,
Shining through (true colors)
We see your true colors
and that's why we loathe you
So be very afraid to let the show,
Your true colors
Your true colors aren't beautiful
Like a rainbow
Ooh ooh ooh like a rainbow

Oh, can't remember when
there wasn't a clown in the office
Ooh oh oh
you make us so crazy,
we've taken all we can bear

I call you out,
and tell you straight to your face

'Cause we see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors,
and that's why I loathe you
Be very afraid (be very afraid) 
'Cause we all know,
Your true colors
Your true colors are aren't beautiful
Like a rainbow
Ooh ooh oh like a rainbow
