I want to rephrase a sentence so it fits the common sentence-structure (I assume it is common), and that's exactly the problem, it seems that I can't recall what that structure is, precisely.

The sentence:

Only a few minutes separate me from knowing the truth.


What separates me from knowing the truth is just a few minutes.

How can it be rephrased so it expresses its meaning completely and greatly? (No harm if you help me in expressing it more dramatically too.)

    I'll know the truth in a few minutes. – J.R. Aug 29 '18 at 9:47

You could say:

There's only a few minutes between me and knowing the truth.
