"I Know The Truth" is the nineteenth song in Elton John's and Tim Rice's musical Aida. After accidentally discovering that her fiancé is in love with her friend, a heartbroken Amneris prepares for her wedding, knowing her marriage is a lie.

Lyrics

Amneris: 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 have been my time; it's over, it never began
I closed my eyes to so much for so long and I no longer can

I try to blame it on fortune, some kind of shift in a star
But I know the truth and it haunts me, it's flown just a little too far
I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
It's flown just a little too far
Why do I want him still? Why, when there's nothing there?
How to go on with the rest of my life to pretend I don't care?
This should've been my time; it's over, it never began
I closed my eyes to so much for so long and I no longer can

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 too late
Oh, I know the truth and it mocks me
I know the truth and it shocks me
I learned it a little too late
Too late...
