i don’t understand lyrics – alecia elliott

(stephanie bently/adrienne follese/keith follese)

there’s a little girl livin’ on the street
i don’t understand
turnin’ tricks to get some some food to eat
i don’t understand
there’s a mama prayin’ to god to bring her baby back
i don’t understand
i don’t understand

there’s a crack house down across the tracks
i don’t understand
people tradin’ smoke for cold hard cash
i don’t understand
there’s just no way this could be part of the greater plan
i don’t understand
i don’t understand

is everybody livin’ in a world without windows
am i the only one who ses
if this is all that’s left of what was once the promise land, oh
i just can’t comprehend it
i just don’t understand

there’s a daddy walkin’ out the door
i don’t understand
leavin’ three kids who need him more
then he understands
these days the trouble starts right where the family ends
i don’t understand
i don’t understand

is everybody livin’ in a world without windows
am i the only one who ses
if this is all that’s left of what was once the promise land, oh
i just can’t comprehend it
i just don’t understand

is everybody livin’ in a world without windows
am i the only one who ses
if this is all that’s left of what was once the promise land, oh
i just can’t comprehend it
i just don’t understand

i don’t understand
