“True Colors” Lyrics

True Colors Cover
Cyndi Lauper

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 (they’re beautiful)
Like a rainbow
Oh oh oh oh oh like a rainbow

Ooh can’t remember when
I last saw you laughing
Ooh oh oh oh
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 (don’t be afraid)
To let them show your true colors
True colors are beautiful (you’re beautiful, oh)
Like a rainbow
Oh oh oh oh oh like a rainbow
Mmm mmm

Justin Timberlake & Anna Kendrick

I personally have never heard of this tandem until now. As I pick the best covers for this song, I found this one and I think it’s a very good cover. Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick are both amazing artists individually and them doing a tandem on this cover made it more amazing. Also, this specific cover was used in DreamWorks’ musical movie ‘Trolls’.

John Legend is arguably one of the best male singers of today. He has become famous these past years due to this hard work and true love for music. I think John Legend’s voice is unique and very distinguishable that’s why even he covers a song, you can still figure out that its’ him. You should watch this video where John covers True Colors by Cyndi Lauper and let me know if you can agree to what I just said!
