Is de eerste single afkomstig van het gelijknamige album True Colors en werd geschreven door Billy Steinberg en Tom Kelly.

In eerste instantie schreef Steinberg over zijn moeder. Het nummer ging vervolgens naar Kelly die het e.e.a. veranderde. Toen Lauper het nummer kreeg was de muziek gospelachtig, zoals Bridge Over Troubled Water. Lauper veranderde de traditionele muziek in zoals we het nummer nu kennen.

Het nummer wordt veel in de gay gemeenschap gedraaid en gebruikt als promotie voor de holebi-rechten. Lauper is mede-oprichter van de True Colors Fonds, een non-profit organisatie die zich inzet voor jonge holebi- jongeren die dakloos zijn.

Songtekst

You with the sad eyes
don't be discouraged, though I realize it's hard to
take courage in a world, full of people,
you can lose sight of it
And the darkness inside you
will make you feel so small

But I see your true colors, shining through
I 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

Show me a smile, don't be unhappy
I can't remember when I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy and
you've taken in all you can bare
You call me up- because you know I'll be there

But I see your true colors, shining through
I 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

I can't remember when I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
and you take in all you can bare
You call me up- because you know I'll be there

And I see your true colors, shining through
I 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 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
