How Come, How Long by Babyface & 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 (1)__________ be
Had so much to live for
But she fell in love
With the (2)__________ kinda 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 (3)________ a second try
Open up your hearts
As well as (4)________ eyes

She tried to give a cry for help
She even (5)____________ things on herself
But no one came to her aid
Nothing was wrong as far as we (6)__________ 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 kinda man
And she paid with her life
For loving that man
So we cannot ignore
We (7)________ look for the signs
And maybe next time
We must 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

I on occasion met that guy
It's been a (8)______________ 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 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 that
And we cannot ignore
Whenever we see the signs
'Cause any (9)__________ 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 (10)________ hearts
As well as your eyes
