Christine DeLeon: SONG CLIPS & LYRICS

The Color of Us

(Christine DeLeon)
(We are all different but we can help bring out the best in everyone. What's your best and where can you offer it to the world?)
I read today a forgiving disposition for the beauty that was taken
It assumed a rather bitter supposition that in love we were mistaken
But I look around at this place and what true mercy will not seek to erase

They may blend and change run together and fade
But I know nothing can take away the color of us

I used to wish for insatiable ambition to bear the world up on my shoulders
Then I learned the importance of decision and choosing wisely as I am older
Now everything that I do reflects the joy I feel when I’m here with you

They may blend and change run together and fade
I have painted my life with all the color of us

I heard today an intolerant contention and what the smallest world became
All because of an uneven reflection and seeing what was not the same
As far as our differences go would they really matter if we truly could know

They may blend and change run together and fade
But what beauty we find in all the color
I have painted my life with all the color
Why would we want to take away the color of us
