Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
They say sing what you know
But I've sung 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
Verse 2
There are kings in my past
Things no one can be proud of
But I stand in the light I've casted
And 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
Verse 3
I know better
I know better
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
I won't have to cut it off from where it came
My history has brought me to this place
This power and the color of my face
Verse 6
And I know better, oh oh
I know better
Verse 7
Oh! I'll rise from the floor if I don't win
I'll bust open that door so let me in
And the music chooses me to sing I let her
I'll sing what I know, yes
Verse 8
I know better, oh
I know better, yes
I know better
I know better
