I Know Better

This song is by John Legend and appears on the album Darkness and Light (2016).

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
We'll 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 cast
Turn away from any luck of love
Oh, and I walk through that door
I say here I go
You see me and nothing before
I'm saying 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 dream in all this fame
I've taken more than I'm allowed
I wanna highly cut it all from where it came
My history has brought m to this place
There's power in the color of my face
And I know better
Oh oh oh
I know better
Oh
I'll rise from the floor without a wing
I'll bust open that door so let me in
And if music chooses me to sing I'll let her
I'm saying what I know, yes
I know better
Oh
I know better
Yes
I know better
I know better
