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 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 and all he can say
Is "baby it's good to me"

One day he goes and take a glimpse in the mirror
But he doesn't recognise his own face (recognise his own face)
His health is fading but 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

I seen a rainbow yesterday
But to many storms have come and gone
Leaving a trace
Of not one God giving ray
Is it because
My life is ten shades of grey
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise him for the seven days

And like his promise is true
Only my faith can undo
Too 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,

Don't go chasing waterfalls (yeah, yeah, ey)
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
Oh 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 (nothing at all)
But I think you're moving too fast
Moving too fast
