[Verse 1]
They say sing what you know
But I sang what they want
Some folks do what they're told
But baby this time I won't
Will look through that door
I know the truth won't lie
Some things I've done before I can't justify

[Pre-Chorus]
There are kings in my past
Things no one can be proud of
But I stand in the light I've casted
Turn away from any lack of love
Oh, and I walked through that door
I say here I go
You see me and nothing more
I'm singing what I know

[Chorus]
I know better
I know better

[Verse 2]
Legend is just a name
I know better than to be so proud
I won't drink in all this fame
I'll take more love than I'm allowed

[Pre-Chorus]
I won't have to cut it off from where it came
My history has brought me to this place
This ___? and the color of my face

[Chorus]
And I know better
I know better

[Bridge]
I'll rise from the floor if I don't win
I'll bust upon that door so let me in
And the music chooses me to sing I let her
I'll sing what I know, yeah

[Chorus]
I know better, oh
I know better, yes
I know better
I know better
This song is from the album "Darkness And Light".
