i know the truth lyrics – janet jackson

[elton]
how have i come to this?
how did i slip and fall?
how did i throw half a lifetime away
without any thought at all?
this should’ve been my time
it’s over, it never began
facing a world, for once not on my side
i simply turned and ran
i try to blame it on fortune
some kind of shift in a star
but i know the truth and it haunts me
its flown just a little too far
i know the truth and it mocks me
i know the truth and it shocks me
oh, its flown just a little too far
yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yes

[janet]
people had faith in me
i think i once did too
i promise whoever has a hold on our lives
i’ll see the bad times through
this should have been my time
it’s over, it never began
facing a world, for once not on my side
i simply turned and ran
i try to blame it on fortune
some kind of twist in my fate
i know the truth and it haunts me
i learned it a little too late
i know the truth and it mocks me
i know the truth and it shocks me
i learned it a little too late

[both]
i try to blame it on fortune
some kind of twist in my fate
(but) i know the truth and it haunts me
i learned it a little, a little too late
i know the truth and it mocks me
i know the truth and it shocks me
oh, oh, yeah, i learned it a little too late

[elton]
yeah-e-yeah

[janet]
yes i did, ooh
