Janet Jackson – I Know The Truth lyrics

[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, it's 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
