Waterfall Lyrics

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.

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 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.

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.

Thoughts & Meanings

This song is about a sex-crazed sex-obsessed sex slave male prostitute man whore who has lost himself in the positive idealistic views and perks of sex. He initially loved his supposedly cool lifestyle of earning money having unprotected sex with strangers but one day, found himself with an HIV. Now it’s too late to take back all his actions and to take back his life. In this song, his mom, I think, kind of got over it, but the song really is about warning other people of the consequences of their actions. If you can’t take the repercussions of the act, don’t do it. It’s not worth it. Or at least be careful. And don’t have sex when you have an HIV. Don’t spread it. That’s a crime on its own. Own up to it and just die with twisted integrity and become a symbol for the living. At least leave you loved ones with some honor.

Apparently the words to this rap section were written on Left-Eye's coffin when she was buried. She had a rather tumultuous life and apparently there are references to her personal experiences with love, loss and the judicial system!

This is about HIV (the three letters). The girl has "a natural obsession for temptation" so she's sleeping around without protection and he doesn't know. The group were really keep to promote awareness about safe sex. I remember when this song came out everyone would discuss interpretations. This was a big deal to talk about AIDS openly.
