Waterfalls Lyrics
by TLC (feat. Namie Amuro)

A lonely mother gazing out of the window
Staring at her son that she just can’t touch
And 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

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

I saw a rainbow the other day
Leaving a trace of not one God-giving ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray?
Cause I am praying all the shades would just fade away
And like His promise
My faith can undo
And all the great chances that I just blew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries

My hope is for those who can’t cope
With such an endurin’ pain
That it just keeps ‘em inside the pourin’ rain
Who is to blame
For tootin’ caine inside your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim
And claim that you’re insane
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
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
