Waterfalls (瀑布) - TLC

Written by:Brandon Bennett/Marqueze Etheridge/Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes/Organized Noize

 

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 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 know 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 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 give 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

Three 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 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

 

Come on

 

I seen rainbow yesterday

But too many storms have come and gone

Leavin' a trace of not on 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 in 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 falling prey to crime

I say the system got you victim to your own mind

Dreams are 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 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
