John Legend – I Know Better

[Verse 1]

              C                            F              D5
They say sing what you know, but I've sung what they want
              C                           F           D5
Some folks do what they're told, but baby this time I won't


     F                 C                Dm        
Will look through that door, I know the truth won't lie
     F                  C             Dm 
Some things I've done before, I can't justify


[Verse 2]

                C                             F           D5
There are kings in my past, things no one can be proud of
                   C                                     F            D5
But I stand in the light I've cast, turned away from any lack of love


          F                   C           Dm
Oh, and I walked through that door, I say here I go
        F              C                 Dm
You see me and nothing more, I'm singing what I know


[Chorus]

      C       C  F
I know better
      C       C  F
I know better


[Verse 3]

          C                                  F           D5
Legend is just a name, I know better than to be so proud
                 C                                       F           D5
I won't dream in all this fame, I'll take more love than I'm allowed


        F              C                 Dm
I won't have to cut it off from where it came
   F           C                  Dm
My history has brought me to this place
     F             C           Dm
This power and the color of my face


[Chorus]

          C       C  F
And I know better
      C       C  F
I know better


[Bridge]

         Am            C                F
Oh, I'll rise from the floor if I don't win
     Am             C              F
I'll bust open that door so let me in
        Am            C             F
And the music chooses me to sing, I let her
          Dm           F  
I'll sing what I know, yes


[Chorus]
 
      C       C  F
I know better,     oh
      C       C  F
I know better,     yes
      C       C  F
I know better
      C       C  F
I know better


[Outro]
