เนื้อเพลง How Come, How Long

How Come, How Long - Stevie Wonder

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 kind of man

 

And he abused her love, 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

herself, On 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 may 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 heart as well as your eyes

 

I, on occasion met that guy

He stirred up feeling deep inside,

 

something about him wasn't right

 

The way he proves himself a man

By beatin' his woman with his hands,

oh, I wish that she was still alive

 

How can someone like that call himself a man,

he's not a man

'Cause in reality, he's far more less than that

And we cannot ignore at all,

whenever we see the signs

 

'Cause any kind of abuse,

God knows is 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
