Sing-a-long Sunday, True Colors

So here goes week 2 of my new Sing-a-long Sunday. I originally planned to just pick a random song that I loved each week to share just because I want to, but N in his infinite wisdom suggested that I instead pick a song that is relevant to the week. This seemed a bit more challenging, but fun nonetheless. Have I mentioned that I love my job? I have? Well, I think I love the organization I work for and the department I work in as much, if not more than, the job itself. Every year the organization does an Adopt-A-Family campaign where each month one department does a fund raiser where the department puts on some sort of something creative to raise funds for the families. One department did theirs this week and called it "[The organization name]'s got Talent" or "Second Chance Idol" where the talented employees of our organization showcase their talents in a friendly competition. They perform, then throughout the week employees vote for their favorite performers by putting money in their envelopes. The people with the most money (aka the most votes) move on to the next round and perform again. It is so much fun and a great way to raise money. So the director of our program who is generally very shy performed this song while playing her guitar. I didn't even know she sang! She did an amazing job with a beautiful song that touched all of us and clearly meant a lot to her. It's a well-known one that everyone will probably have no trouble singing along with. Enjoy! You with the sad eyes Don't be discouraged Oh I realize Its hard to take courage In a world full of people You can lose sight of it all And the darkness inside you Can make you feel so small But I see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And thats why I love you So dont be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful, Like a rainbow 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 youve taken all you can bear You call me up Because you know Ill be there And Ill see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And thats why I love you So dont be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful, Like a rainbow (when I last saw you laughing) If this world makes you crazy And youve taken all you can bear You call me up Because you know Ill be there And Ill see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And thats why I love you So dont be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors True colors Shining through I see your true colors And thats why I love you So dont be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful, Like a rainbow
