NOTES:
1.   This is the best reduction I could come up with from the three
guitars used in the recording to one solo acoustic guitar (which is
all I have.)  So it may not be perfect, but give it a try and see what
you think.
2.   PLEASE feel free to e-mail me any comments/corrections/criticism!

Here are all of the lyrics:

VERSE 1:
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

CHORUS:
But I'll see your true colors
Shining through
I'll 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

VERSE 2:
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

CHORUS:

VERSE 3:
Oooo....
(whispered)
can't remember
When I last saw you laughing
(sung)
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

FINAL CHORUS:
And I'll see your true colors
Shining through
I'll 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,
true colors are shining through
I'll 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
Beautiful,
Like a Rainbow

Enjoy!
