Pink Dot 2012 Song: True Colours


Posted on June 10th, by Pink Dot Sg in Pink Dot 2010, Pink Dot 2012. 2 comments

After much discussion and debate, we’ve decided that the Pink Dot song for 2012 is.. *drumroll* True Colours. Written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly, True Colours was released in 1986 by American starlet Cyndi Lauper. Because of its poignant lyrics, it became a landmark song for the LGBT community. We at Pink Dot Sg say aye - Your true colours are beautiful, like a rainbow.

See you on 30 June 2012 at 6pm, and sing-along to this song about courage, beauty, and most of all, about love.

Have a look at some of the versions we’ve found on YouTube below, and scroll down for the lyrics. Enjoy!

True Colours
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 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 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

And I’ll 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 (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

And I’ll 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
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

    Hi!

    I’m not sure if you guys were aware of this video but decided not to use it, but the Gay Men’s Chorus of LA covered True Colours, here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnYa9R4N-8c) and it’s absolutely beautiful. Just thought it’d be nice if the video was embedded here!

    Fantastic song choice! Cyndi Lauper is an avid supporter of LGBT rights and her Give A Damn campaign is helping many.

    See you all at Pink Dot!
