Les paroles de la chanson
« 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
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 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 our self
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 must save somebody’s life


Oh, oh, yeah yeah
I hold the key and won’t back down
Extend a feeling deep inside
Something about it wasn’t right

Oh oh, the way he proves himself a man
By beating his woman with his hands
I wish that she’d see the light

[How can someone like this call themself a man?
(He’s not a man)
’Cause 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
