Stevie Wonder - How Come, How Long Şarkı Sözü

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

how come, how long
ıts not right, ıts so wrong
do we let ıt just go on
turn our backs and carry on
wake up, for ıts too 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 wed like to tell ourselves
but no, ıt wasnt that way
so she fell ın love
with the wrong kinda man
and she paid with her life
for loving that man
so we cannot ıgnore,
we must look for the signs
and maybe next time we might save
somebodys life

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

ı on occasion met that guy
ıts been a feeling deep ınside
some ... wasnt right
the way he proves himself a man
by beating his woman with his hands
oh ı wish that shed seen the light
how can someone like that call himself a man
hes not a man
soon reality ...
and we cannot ıgnore
whenever we see the signs
cause any kind of abuse
god knows, ıts a crime

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