Jem - I Always Knew Lyrics




I always knew I would one day be here
But I couldn't be a puppet on a string
I've had my fights often I've been KO'd
But I've got back up no I won't give in

And now I know how it works
If you're too nice, you lose

I'm gonna make it to the top well let me show you
And if I have got to toughen up then that is what I'll do
But don't make me a monster baby you'd be crazy that's for sure
Becoming a bitch is not what I got into music for

Remember back to a bench in Wales
Where two young boys started mocking me
I looked at them thought I'll show you one day
But I didn't fight or stand up for me

And that young girl's learnt the hard way
If you're too nice, you lose

I'm gonna make it to the top well let me show you
And if I have got to toughen up then that is what I'll do
But don't make me a monster baby you'd be crazy that's for sure
Becoming a bitch is not what I got into music for

I'll make it crystal clear
I am not going anywhere
As long as there is music
I'll be here, here

I'm gonna make it to the top well let me show you
And if I have got to toughen up then that is what I'll do
But don't make me a monster baby you'd be crazy that's for sure
Becoming a bitch is not what I got into music for

I'm gonna make it to the top well let me show you
And if I have got to toughen up then that is what I'll do
I've sold you a million baby not just maybe that's for sure
Given the chance I'll show you I can sell a zillion more

  4. Tammy Holmes

    Woman intuition is never wrong but too late for me to start listening now

  5. Supernatural

    I guess this song explains why she vanished from the industry. From 'They' where they made her strip in space, to defying the selling of your flesh for fame, then they close all your doors. 🙄

  6. Jimmy Catalina

    Beware the cost of fame..

  7. Syno Fobhia

    Me: do you know something more
    Beautiful than this song?
    Jem: ?
    Me: your eyes....

  8. Dox Beats

    2018 first time hearing this and I am disappointed I didn't listen to this earlier. I remember her tracks since 2007... WAY ahead of it's time.

    Amazing and catchy! But from 0:40 to 1:00 the melody sounds soo familiar and I don't know where I've heard it!

    e-moll kettő öt egy

    Gangstas paradise

  29. Tariq Mezeik

  30. MultiK

    The 'Don't hate (?)' that you have, I think it actually is 'Don't make me a monster baby'

    N96 adawi

    You can clearly hear "don't hate me" with accentuated H

    Cringe Factory

    My daughter loves singing this with me because she gets to say the "B" word in the chorus! This is one of the dozen or so Jem songs that I think are absolutely fantastic. What an amazing talent, and so very encouraging in many areas of life.
