I see your true colors shinin' through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you
I see your true colors shinin' through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you, baby

Yo, father forgive, we all tryin' to survive where we live
I'd rather feed the homeless, take time to talk to da kids
Show 'em life ain't no walk on the bridge
Damn as hard as it is, when I be dreamin' I be talkin' to B.I.G

In my hood it ain't no yellow brick road, we hear the shots echo
Sneakers hangin' from a telephone pole
In my ghetto ain't no rainbow wit' pots a gold
But tha was love from tha family when times got cold

I seen and analyzed tha world from my project roof
An' seen the hope in tha eyes of a troubled youth
A good kid, I kept this burna in dis motha goose
A motherless child lost in these streets loose

In the water worlds away these are rainy days
My man got popped at an early age
These cowards run and say he flipped into his early grave
They say the good die young, we're headed for dem pearly gates

I see your true colors shinin' through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you
I see your true colors shinin' through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you, baby

Yo, they say this love wasn't meant to be
Two people from two different worlds, we wasn't meant to be
It musta been fate you were sent to me
We'll make it through these hard times, eventually

Tha standard fight, walk by faith and not by sight
We're all tha same color when you turn out tha lights
I take tha sunshine with tha pain
Wear my Sara guards sad, dats when it rains

No fridge, kept tha food on tha window payne
We all breathe tha same air so we all tha same
I'm trapped in this ghetto maze tryna make it out
If you don't know me don't judge me, wuthcu talkin' 'bout

I'm far dividable of hard of tha broken dreams
Single mothas y'all my heroes, y'all my queens
To get my moms out tha hood, that's my hope n dreams
To raise my son to be a soldier by any means

I see your true colors shinin' through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you
I see your true colors shinin' through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you, baby

I see your true colors shinin' through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you
I see your true colors shinin' through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you, baby
