Chorus:
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

„After the album came out in late summer 1986, I went on Late Night with David Letterman again to sing True Colors and I was so freaked out. I kept thinking, “Oh my God, how am I going to perform? I have to win all these people over and I have to do it quietly, without singing my guts out.” I remember my hair was bright yellow with some red extensions—it was very exciting. I had on a Vivienne Westwood skirt and a hat from the World’s Fair and this really beautiful vintage cowboy shirt that was all kinds of green, so pretty.
To capture the spirit of the song, I made everything dark on the stage. And because it was a healing song, I held a little amethyst that was shaped like a heart in my hand, which I didn’t show anybody. I was so frightened on that stage and holding on to that amethyst soothed me. And I went to a place that was otherworldly, that allowed me to express my message: You want to heal. Go heal. And so, I learned the power of a whisper.“ Cyndi Lauper – A Memoir
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 the darkness 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
.
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’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
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow
