Waterfalls Lyrics

A lonely mother gazing out of the window
Staring at her son that she just can't touch
If at any time he's in a jam, she'll be by his side
But he doesn't realize he hurts her so much

But all the praying just ain't helping at all
'Cause he can't seem to keep his self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money the best way he knows how
Another body layin' cold in the gutter

Listen to me
Don?t go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers
And the lakes that you?re used to
I know that you?re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Little precious has a natural obsession for temptation
But he just can't see
She gives him loving that his body can't handle
But all he can say is, "Baby is good to me"

One day he goes and take a glimpse in the mirror
But he doesn?t recognize his own face
His health is fading and he doesn?t know why
3 letters took him to his final resting place

Y'all, don?t you hear me?
Don?t go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers
And the lakes that you?re used to
I know that you?re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

Y'all, don?t you hear me?
Don?t go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers
And the lakes that you?re used to
I know that you?re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast
Come on

I seen a rainbow yesterday but too many storms have come and gone
Leaving a trace of not one God giving ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray?
I pray, all ten fade away, seldom praise him for the seven days

And like his promise is true
Only my faith can undo the many chances I blew to bring my life to anew
Clear and blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes

No more lonely cries, my only bleeding hope
Is for the folk who can't cope with such an endurin? pain
That it keeps them in the pourin' rain
Who's to blame for tootin? caine into your own vein

What a shame, you shoot and aim for someone else?s blame
You claim the insane for this day
And time for falling prey to crime
I say the system's got you victim to your own mind

Dreams are hopeless aspirations in hopes of coming true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

Don?t go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers
And the lakes that you?re used to
I know that you?re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast

TLC's song means a lot to me. This song is what we should all live by. This song should inspire us to only live for the good and not the bad. Rest In Peace Left Eye.

The first verseisabout a son who sells grugsand the gets killed. The second is a man who dies from AIDS. And Left Eye's verseis about having good days and bad ones--just keep your faith.
