Lyrics
A lonely mother gazing out of the window
Staring at her 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

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 is 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

I told him
Don't go chasing waterfalls, just 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 (moving too fast)
Moving too fast (moving too fast)

Don't go (don't go) chasing waterfalls (waterfalls), please stick to the rivers
(Oh my darling) And the lakes that you're used to (stick to what 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

Moving too fast
