TLC | Waterfalls
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 nat’ral 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.
Because of Cynthia I’ll never forget that this song is about HIV.
