"How Come, How Long" - Babyface and Stevie Wonder.


there was a girl I used to know
she was oh so beautiful
but shes not here any more
she had a college degree
smart as anyone could be
she had so much to live for
but she fell in love
with the wrong kinda man
he abused her love and treated her so bad
there was not enough education in her world
that could save the life of this little girl.

how come,how long
its not right, its so wrong
do we let it just go on
turn our backs and carry on
wake up, for its to late
right now, we cant wait
she wont have a second try
open up your hearts
as well as your eyes

she tried to give a cry for help
she even blamed things on herself
but no-one came to her aid
nothing was wrong as far as we could tell
thats what we'd like to tell ourselves
but no it wasn't that way
so she fell in love
with the wrong kinda man
and she paid with her life
for loving that man
so we can not ignore
we must look for the signs
and may be next time
we might save somebodys life.

how come, how long
it's not right, its so wrong
do we let it just go on
turn our backs and carry on
wake up for it's to late
right now we cant wait
she wont have a second try
open up your hearts
as well as your eyes

I on occasion met that guy
its been a feeling deep inside
something about him wasnt right
the way he proves himself a man
by beating his woman with his hands
oh i wish that she'd seen the light
how can someone like that call himself a man
(he's not man)
Cos in reality he's far more less than that
and we can not ignore
whenever we see the signs
cause any kind of abuse
God knows is a crime

how come, how long
its not right its so wrong
do we let it just go on
turn our backs and carry on
wake up for it's to late
right now we can't wait
she won't have a second try
open up your hearts
as well as your eyes
