Lyrics

A lonely mother gazing out of the 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 hurts 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

Y'all don't hear 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 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 your gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think your'e moving too fast

Come on I've 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 not my 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 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 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
