Lyrics

[Mikey Jimenez]
You with the sad eyes
Don't be discouraged
Oh I realize
It's hard to take courage

[Brady Tutton]
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

[Jaden Gray]
But I see your true colors
Shining through
And 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

[Dorian Tyler]
Show me a smile then
Don't be unhappy, can't remember
When I last saw you laughing

[Mikey Jimenez]
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
Just call me up
Because you know I'll be there

[Brady Tutton]
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

[All]
Your true colors, true colors
True colors are shining through

[Dorian Tyler]
And I'll see your true colors
That's Why I Love you

[All]
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow
