Alecia Elliott — I Don't Understand lyrics

(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
