I Know Better - John Legend

Written by:John Stephens/Blake Mills/Will Oldham


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


When I look through that door

I know the truth from lie


Some things I've done before I can't justify


There are kings in my past


Things no one can be proud of


But I stand in the light I've cast


And turn away from any lack of love


Oh when I walked through that door

I say here I go


You see me and nothing more

I'm singing what I know


I know better


I know better


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


I won't hide or cut it off from where it came


My history has brought me to this place


This power and the color of my face


And I know better


I know better


I'll rise from the floor if I don't win


I'll bust open that door so let me in


And if music chooses me to sing I let her


I'll sing what I know yeah


I know better oh


I know better yes


I know better


I know better
