(Girl)
I see your true colours shinin' through,
I see your true colours and thats why i love you
I see your true colours shinin' through,
I see your true colours and thats why i love you baby

(Nas)
Fall or forgive we all tryna survive when we live,
I'd rather feed the homeless they've time to talk to their kids,
Show em life aint no walk on the bridge,
Dam its hard as it is when i be dreaming i be talking to Big,
In my 'hood it aint a yellow brick road
We had a shot Seko sneakers hanging from a telephone pole,
And my Daddy aint no rainbow or pots of gold,
But there was love from the family when times were cold,
I sit and analyse the world from my project roof,
And seen the hope in the eyes of a troubled youth,
A good kid well kept the burning in this mother goose,
A motherless child in these streets loose,
And the more the words are raged these are rainy days,
My man got popped at an early age,
His collage friends say he flipped him to his early grave,
They say the good the young were having fun at the pearly gates.

(Girl)
I see your true colours shinin' through, (straight up)
I see your true colours and thats why i love you (i can see through u man)
I see your true colours shinin' through, (i knew you werent really like that)
I see your true colours and thats why i love you

(Nas)
They say this luv wasn't meant to be
2 people from 2 different worlds it wasnt meant to be,
It must have been fate you was sent to me,
We'll make it through these hard times eventually,
The standard fight,
War by faith and not by sight,
we're all the same colour when you turn out the lights,
Take the sunshine with the pain,
Grandma Sarah got sad thats with the range,
No fridge kept the food on the window pane,
We all breathe the same air so we all the same,
Im trapped in this Ghetto maze tryna make it out,
If you dont know me dont judge me what u talk about,
Ive walked up by the boulevard of the broken dreams,
Single mothers your my heros ya'll my queens,
To get the Moms out the 'hood thats my hope and dreams,
To raise my son to be a soldier by any means.

(Girl)
I see your true colours shinin' through,
I see your true colours and thats why i love you
I see your true colours shinin' through,
I see your true colours and thats why i love you.
I see your true colours shinin' through,
I see your true colours and thats why i love you
I see your true colours shinin' through,
I see your true colours and thats why i love you.
