Took me on a trip
dropped me off in Amsterdam
Told me I was obsolete
said you didn’t really give a damn
Your true colours are showing now
and you’d just love to think they’re black
But I think they’re more a washed out grey
and you need some colour back

That junkie stole your cash
left you crying on the subway train
You love to play the Euro trash
but reality’s not quite the same
Your true colours are showing now
and it seems you’re in the red

Let me give it to
Let me give it to you
Lovin’ and respect
Let me give my best
Let me give it to you

Your true colours are showing now
and it seems you’re in the red
I wish the corners of your downturned lips
could be turning up instead

If we could only see
beyond the good and bad
Respect can set us free
it’s the best thing that we have

It doesn’t matter what you do
I can love you just the same
You stand there in your Gothic black
your make-up running in the rain
Your true colours are showing now
and they’re brighter than you think
I can lead you to the water, girl
it’s up to you to take a drink
