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.)

You could say:

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