A lonely mother gazing out of her window
Staring at a 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 needs her so much
But all the praying just ain't helping at all
Cause he can't seem to keep himself out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money the best way he knows how
Another body laying 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 your gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think your'e moving too fast
Little precious has a natural obsession
For tempation but he just can't see
She gives him loving that his body can't handle
But all he can say is baby it's good to me
One day he goes and takes 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
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that
You're used to
I know that your gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think your'e moving too fast
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that
You're used to
I know that your gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think your'e moving too fast
Ive seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin' a trace of not one God given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days
And like his promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries
My only bleedin' hope
Is for the folk who can't cope
Wit such an endurin' pain
That it keeps em' 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 brain
You claim the insane
And name this day in time
For fallin' prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
Dreams and hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin' true
Beleive 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 your gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think your'e moving too fast
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that
You're used to
I know that your gonna have it your way
Or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast
