    I believe the meaning of this song is in regards to heaven. I often hear people say heaven has colors we’ve never seen before. “All my favorite colors”. I also think it means enjoying each day as we are with our “sisters & brothers”.

    The meaning seems to hold to traditional understandings or color as being about skin tones and various emotions, but there is a slight shift, when he shakes the leaves off... if we understand the changing season hinted at here perhaps he is rejecting other colors and feelings or ideas and reducing it to the " brown brown brown" or in the writers opinion, the more elegant monotonal world. Colors, is illusory, not an implication that the writer prefers variety.

    I think that tmeaning of “all my favourite colours” is being grateful to be alive and able to see this world.

    I believe this song is about race. “All my favorite colors” talks about people of different race. Saying that “my sisters and my brothers see them like no others” talks about people seeing them in a literal sense “like no other”. Meaning that we are all one people, but also so different from one another. And that’s not a bad thing.

    I lost my dog recently and heard this song. I envisioned him waking up and walking to heaven. He was blind in his old age, and now he could see again. The whole song fits this narrative perfectly. Seeing his brothers and sisters again, a homecoming parade, etc.

    I think it means the world holds more than it shows. And that we can all see more to it than that. Seeing colors means seeing things how they are. But seeing our favorite colors means seeing things how we want them to be
