My True Colors

Just know the real me,
I want you to see,
My true colors
I am sorry.

For hurting your soul,
For being cruel and cold
My real colors
I am sorry.

To hold your hand
To be right where you stand
My pure soul,
I am sorry

My gentle real voice,
I know I had a choice,
My true colors,
I am sorry


I know I have done bad,
And for this I am sad,
My real colors,
I am sorry.

My faults are on my mind,
Desolately left behind
My pure soul,
I am sorry.

I regret my deeds,
But please do heed,
My true colors,
I am sorry.

I was harsh and rough,
Left you when times were tough,
My real colors,
I am sorry.

It hurts to see you cry,
As life passes us by,
My pure soul,
I am sorry.

I committed a crime,
But cannot take back time,
My true colors,
I am sorry.

The reason for my ways
Is my red suffering days,
My real colors,
I am sorry.

I can’t take it back
But can give you what I lack
My pure soul,
I am sorry.

But I can’t stop to worry,
What I did to thee,
My true colors,
I am sorry.

You didn’t think to know,
How my sorrow came to grow,
My real colors,
I am sorry.

The crushing of your heart
Made mine fall apart,
My true pure soul,
I am sorry.

I am misunderstood
Not looked at as good,
My true colors
I am sorry.

Just try to get me
To open your eyes and see,
My real colors
I am sorry.

You are a true friend,
An inspiration till the very end,
Please forgive me,
I am sorry.
