hidden
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 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
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
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 (C'mon)
(Rap)
I 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
No more lonely cries
My only bleedin' hope is for the folk who can't
cope with 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 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
(Oh, you're movin' 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… don't you want it,
