"Waterfalls" was recorded by British girl group Stooshe originally recorded for their self-titled debut album, released through Warner Music UK on 11 November 2012. Stooshe chose to release a cover of "Waterfalls" after meeting TLC member T-Boz, who had previously congratulated them on their acoustic cover of the song. The band have turned the track's rap, performed by Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, into a three-part harmony. It was announced in April 2013 that the group's cover of "Waterfalls" would not be appearing on their debut album, with member Karis Anderson claiming they "are pretending [it] didn't happen". The B-side track to it is "See Me Like This".

Lyrics

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 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 gonna 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 your 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 your moving too fast

Moving too fast.
