Babyface & Stevie Wonder – How Come, How Long lyrics

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

There was a girl I 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 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

Its not right, its so wrong

Do we let it just go on

Turn our backs and carry on

Wake up, for its too late

Right now, we can't 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

That's what wed like to tell ourselves

But no! It wasnt 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

Somebodys life

Chorus

There was a girl I 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 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
