Sung By "TLC"


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 knows how


Another body laying cold in the gutter' 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 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 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 (rpt 1)


I see a rainbow yesterday' but too many storms


Havee 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 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 cri endurin' pain that it keeps 'em in the pourin' rain

Who's to bl a shame

The End
