True Colors Lyrics

You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
Its 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...

    For me when i think of this song about being bullyed but when i see people get bullyed just because they are they Different but this song says that it's Ok to be different it's ok to be yourself and show your TRUE COLORS just be yourself and it doesn't matter what other think about you.

    I can't believe no one wrote anything about this song! It's fantastic! I don't like Cyndi Lauper's at all but the song is lovely! I listen to a version of this song sung by lyssa Reid, Pierre Bouvier, Fefe Dobson, Lights, Jacob Hoggard, Kardinal Offishall and Walk Off the Earth, all of them are singing together to show that they're against bullying!It's way better then the original (in my opinion).

    This song is about showing people who you really are and showing your "true colours", in other words, your true self! When I think of this song, I think about bullying.People get bullied because they're "different".This song shows that it's ok to be different and to be yourself!Someone will love you the way you are! Don't be afraid of what others will think of you and be yourself!
