How Come, How Long

Babyface

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

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 the signs
And maybe next time
We might save somebody's life

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

Oh, I on occasion met that guy
He stirred me bad feelings deep inside
Something about him wasn't right

Oh, the way he proves himself a man
By beatin' his woman with his hands
Oh I wish she'd seen the light

How can someone like that
Call himself a man? (He's not a man)
Cuz in reality he's far more less than that

And we cannot ignore
Wherever we see the signs
'Cause any kind of abuse
God knows isn't right

How come (how come), how long (how long)
It's not right (it's not right), it's so wrong (so wrong)
Do we let it just go on (just go)
Turn our backs and carry on
Wake up (wake up), for it's too late (too late)
Right now (now), we can't wait (we can't wait)
She won't have a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as your eyes
