How Come, How Long by Babyface & Stevie Wonder

There was a (1)________ I used to know
She was (oh) so beautiful
But she's not here anymore
She had a college degree
Smart as (2)____________ could be
Had so much to (3)________ for
But she (4)________ in love
With the wrong (5)__________ man
He abused her (6)________ and treated her so bad
There was not enough education in her world
That (7)__________ save (8)________ 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 (9)________ a cry for help
She even blamed things on herself
But no one came to her aid
Nothing was (10)__________ as far as we could tell
That's what we'd like to tell our self
But no, it wasn't (11)________ way
So she fell in love
With the wrong kinda man
And she (12)________ with her life
For loving that man
So we cannot ignore
We (13)________ look for the signs
And (14)__________ (15)________ time
We (16)________ save somebody's life
How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it (17)________ 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 (18)________________ met (19)________ guy
It's been a feeling deep inside
Something about him wasn't right
The way he proves (20)______________ a man
By beatin' his woman (21)________ his hands
(Oh) I wish she'd seen the light
How can someone like that
Call (22)______________ a man (He's not a man)
In reality he's far (23)________ (24)________ than that
And we cannot ignore
Whenever we see the signs
'Cause any (25)__________ of abuse
God knows it's a crime
How come, how long
It's not right, it's so wrong
Do we let it (26)________ 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 (27)____________ try
Open up your hearts
As well as (28)________ eyes
