Color Me In Lyrics


Shahroz Color Me In

[Verse 1: Shahroz]
Melanin, Melanin
Look at your body, your skin is so excellent
Pretty brown eyes, pretty brown eyes
You don't do the blue, that's a hue from the outside
Even if it's blue, you're still beautiful
Light up on the TV, that's usual
Cause it's hard to be dark in this world that we're livin'
Got the heart of a artist with no inhibitions
Brush stroke on you white folk!
Tell me how that feels when I flip it
Let me paint this picture for a minute
Put your people on a ship and whip it
Or take over your lands and your village
Now imagine what a kid grows up thinkin'
Swear to God, the effects, they be tricklin'
Swear to God, the effects, they be tricklin'
I mention this message in hopes that you get it
I love you no matter your race or complexion

[Hook: Shahroz]
Color me in, color me in
Color my soul, color my skin
Take me as I am, take me as I am
Take me as I am, within

[Verse 2: Shahroz]
Here's a part of my culture that I don't like
Talk about a girl, first thing - is her skin light?
Damn. Why you so focused on the surface?
Sippin' tea, in a meme, lookin' like kermit
Damn. Why you gotta act like a puppet?
Did a white bloke put his hand right up your buttox?
Treat your daughter like a stock, watch her plummet
And you really think your son is above it?
Turn yo head to a drop-top, look inside the conscience
Have the sub bump, I can see why your bonkers
Have you lost all of your empathy?
Have you lost all of your empathy?
Say you're against it but still do it endlessly
How can you people just live so pretentiously?
Black kings, black queens
Brown kings, brown queens
You were made just the way God wanted
You are great, and they can't take from it

[Hook: Shahroz]
Color me in, color me in
Color my soul, color my skin
Take me as I am, take me as I am
Take me as I am, within

[Outro: Rameez]
She's just a surreal woman
I wanted her all my life
She's just a surreal woman
All my life, that's surreal
She's just a surreal woman
I wanted her all my life
She's just a surreal woman
All my life, that's surreal
In the light, yeah, my baby lookin' right
When we go round the city, yeah
Sun-kissed in the light, yeah
In the light, yeah, my baby lookin' right
When we go round the city, yeah
Sun-kissed in the light, yeah
