Lyrics for How Come How Long by Babyface



There was a girl I used to know
She was oh so beautiful
She's not here anymore
She had a college degree
Smart as anyone could be
Had so much to live for
But she fell in love
With the wrong kind of 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 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 kind of 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
It's been a feeling deep inside
Some about it wasn't right
The way he proves himself a man
By beating his woman with his hands
Always wishing that she'd seen the light
How can someone like that call himself a man
He's not a man
In reality, he's far more less than
And we cannot ignore
Whenever we see the signs
Cause any kind of abuse
God knows, it's a crime

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
