[Intro] 
Am G/B C F (2x)


[Verse 1] 
             Am   G/B
You with the sad eyes 
C                 F
Don't be discouraged 
   Am          G/B
Oh I realize 
      C               F
It's hard to take courage 
      Am              G/B
In a world full of people 
C                  F
You can lose sight of it all 
         Am          G/B
And the darkness, inside you 
               F       C
Can make you feel so small
 

[Verse 2] 
            Am   G/B
Show me a smile then, 
C            F             Am
Don't be unhappy, can't remember 
 G/B       C               F
When I last saw you laughing 
         Am               G/B
If this world makes you crazy 
             C             F
And you've taken all you can bear 
 Am               G/B
Just you call me up 
          F   C
Cause' I will always be there 
 

[Chorus] 
             F    C
I see your true colors 
G
Shining through 
             F    C
I see your true colors 
     F            G
And that's why I love you 
     F         C       E       Am
So don't be afraid to let them show 
       F     C
Your true colors 
 F      C        G
True colors are beautiful, 
        C
Like a rainbow
