ft. 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 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 might 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
He stirred up bad feelings 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
In reality he’s far more less than that
And we cannot ignore
Whenever we see the signs
Cause any kinda of abuse
God knows isn’t right

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

Babyface - How Come, How Long

Prevod pesme

Kako to, koliko dugo

Nekad sam znao jednu devojku
Bila je, oh, tako prelepa
Ali nje više nema
Imala je diplomu koledža
Pametna koliko je to moguće
Ali zaljubila se
U pogrešan tip čoveka
Iskorištavao je njenu ljubav i
Bio jako loš prema njoj
Nije bilo tog obrazovanja u njenom svetu
Koje bi spasilo život te devojčice male

Kako to, koliko dugo
To nije u redu, to je pogrešno
Da li da pustimo da se to prosto nastavi
Okrenemo leđa i produžimo dalje
Probudite se, jer prekasno je
Baš sad, ne možemo čekati
Ona drugu šansu neće imati
Otvorite srca
Kao i oči

Pokušala je da dozove pomoć
Čak je sebe krivila za sve
Ali niko nije došao da joj pomogne
Činilo se da sve u redu je
To je ono u šta ubeđujemo sebe
Ali ne! Nije bilo tako
Tako se ona zaljubila
U pogrešan tip čoveka
I svojim je životom platila
Što je volela tog čoveka
Zato mi ne možemo ignorisati
Moramo znake tražiti
I možda sledeći put
Uspemo nečiji život spasiti

Kako to, koliko dugo
To nije u redu, to je tako pogrešno
Da li da pustimo da se to prosto nastavi
Okrenemo leđa i produžimo dalje
Probudite se, jer prekasno je
Baš sad, ne možemo čekati
Ona drugu šansu neće imati
Otvorite srca
Kao i oči

Tog tipa sam povremeno sretao
Neki nemir iznutra on je pokretao
Nešto u vezi njega nije bilo kako treba
To što dokazuje svoju muškost
Tako što svoju ženu udara
Oh, voleo bih da je uvidela
Kako neko kao on
Može da se smatra čovekom
Zapravo, on je od toga daleko
I mi ne možemo ignorisati
Kad god vidimo znake
Jer bilo koji oblik zlostavljanja
Bog zna da nije u redu

Kako to, koliko dugo
To nije u redu, to je tako pogrešno
Da li da pustimo da se to prosto nastavi
Okrenemo leđa i produžimo dalje
Probudite se, jer prekasno je
Baš sad, ne možemo čekati
Ona drugu šansu neće imati
Otvorite srca
Kao i oči
