Sung By "TLC"

A lonely mother gazing out of her wi
ndow
Staring at a son that she just can't to
uch
If at any time he's in a jam, she'll be
by his side
But he doesn't realize he hurts her s
o 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 m
oney
The best way he knows how
Another body laying cold in the gutt
er, listen to me
1-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 you
r way
Or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast
Little precious has a natural obsessio
n
For temptation but he just can't see
She gives him loving that his body c
an't handle
But all he can say is baby it's good t
o me
One day he goes and takes a glimps
e in the mirror
But he doesn't recognize his own fac
e
His health is fading and he doesn't k
now why
3 letters took him to his final resting
place
Y'all don't hear me?
1-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 you
r way
Or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast
1-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 you
r way
Or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast
I see a rainbow yesterday, but too m
any storms
Have come and gone leavin' a trace
of not
Good-given ray, is it because my life
is ten
Shades of gray, I pray all ten fade aw
ay
Seldom praise Him for the sunny da
ys
And like His promise is true only my
faith can undo
The many chances I blew to bring m
y life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cri endurin' pain tha
t it keeps 'em in the pourin' rain
Who's to bl a shame
1-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 you
r way
Or nothing at all
But I think you're moving too fast
1-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 you
r way
Or nothing at all
