True Colours

If I done this song again I would execute so much better..

I still love the idea so may do

Anyways overall this video says it all




-





Oh now I see ya

The love of money all in your demeanour

Smile in the face of my mum

but behind calls doors you call me nigga

I never really understood I was just playing on my gameboy

staying put, I see these parents are arguing between themselves,

but was it my fault, How am I to help,

I’m tired of this game,

every time they argue why I’m I the one to blame

But hey, its just a name

all i got do is learn to stay out there way

I just find it funny that there attitude would change

when my mum would come down,

now where’s all the calling names and rage

I live on to turn the page, spoke to social services and the family got replaced ace

having learnt to speak up, i learnt things can change and never to beat myself up

I see your true colours shining through

I see your true colours and thats why I love you

so don’t be afraid to let them see your true colours

I see your true colours shining through

I see your true colours and thats why I love you

so don’t be afraid to let them see your true colours

She’s like don’t trust them white devils

but she let me live with them

And have i got to go though this education with that idea in my system?

Call it a contradiction or non-fiction

as a kid I never really listened

I was too concerned on tryna fit in

not being isolated from the colours of my skin

Playing kirby, football and pogs

seems like were all the same when were playing games

I don’t want that to ever change

But I reminsce when reality hits

my friends are playing kiss chase with a couple chicks

It look fun so I thought I would join in until i heard your ugly

look at your black skin

get away from me

I see your true colours shining through

I see your true colours and thats why I love you

so don’t be afraid to let them see your true colours

I see your true colours shining through

I see your true colours and thats why I love you

so don’t be afraid to let them see your true colours

ooo child things are gona get easier

ooo child things will get brighter

ooo child things are gona get easier

things will get brighter

I moved from ABC to D

A family finally accepted me for me

True Colours was like for like

cause they knew there was more than what meets the eye

showed me love and care I couldn’t deny

showed me good manners, morals and high standards

even when I will ill behaved accepted the challenge

to make me a better young man

I was like the Fresh Prince

but parents can understand

so no nightmares on this street

I’m living healthy

with a good group of mates

(oh yo blud, bell me)

so I appreciate the colours that surround me

cause I’m more vivid than the way you first found me

so even though Ive been around be

They road to this path has been truly found

And I’m glad I got a family that are not here just for now

but forever

and I couldn’t ask for better
