Babyface & Stevie Wonder - How Come, How Long
===============================================

There was a girl I used to know

She was oh so beautiful

But she's not here anymore

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



Chorus:

How come, how long

It's not right, it's so wrong

Do we let it just go on

Turn our backs and carry on

Wake up, for it's too late

Right now, we can't wait

She won't 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

That's 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 cannot ignore

We must look for this signs

And maybe next time we might save

Somebody's life



Chorus
