      About "How Come, How Long"

      Lyrics for 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

      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 could save somebody's life
