    [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

    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

    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

    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

    And I know better
    I know better

    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

    I know better, oh
    I know better, yes
    I know better
    I know better
