Shining Through (Bonus Track) - Fredro Starr feat Sunshine Anderson

[Chorus - Sunshine Anderson]:
I see your true colors, shinin' through
I see your true colors, and that's why I love you
I see your true colors, shinin' through
I see your true colors, and that's why I love you

[Fredro Starr]:
Yo, father forgive, we all tryin' to survive where we live
I'd rather feed the homeless, take time to talk to the kids
Show 'em life ain't no walk on the bridge
Damn as hard as it is, when I be dreamin' I be talkin' to B.I.G.
In my hood it ain't no yellow brick road, we hear the shot echo
Sneakers hangin' from a telephone pole
In my ghetto ain't no rainbow with pots of gold
But there was love from the family when times got cold
I seen and analyzed the world from my project roof
And seen the hope in the eyes of a troubled youth
A good kid, I kept this burner in this mother goose
A motherless child, lost in these streets loose
In the waterworlds away these are rainy days
My man got popped at an early age
These cowards run and say he flipped into his early grave
They say the good die you, we're headed for them pearly gates


[Fredro Starr]:
Yo, they say this love wasn't meant to be
Two people from two different worlds, we wasn't meant to be
It must've been fate you was sent to me
We'll make it through these hard time, eventually
The standard fight, walk by faith and not by sight
We're all the same colr when you turn out the lights
I take the sunshine with the pain
Wear my saraguards sad, that's whe it rains
No fridge, kept the food on the window pane
We all breathe the same air so we all the same
I'm trapped in this ghetto maze try to make it out
If you don't know me don't judge me, what you talkin' 'bout
I'm far dividable of hard and the broken dreams
Single mothers ya'll my heroes, ya'll my queens
To get my moms out the hood, that's my hope and dreams
To raise my son to be a soldier by any means
