my lyricsbox
When I was just a little wide eyed child
Trying to beat the heat
I saw that cool clear water running in the creek
I climbed up on the highest branch in a tall pine tree
I closed my eyes and held my breath
And I heard my mama call to me

She said you better look before you leap
You might find yourself in way too deep
There may be danger that you can't see
You better look before you leap

Later on, I was growing up
Talking to my best friend
I told her I had kissed a boy
And I wanted to do it again
She said, let's go see my big sister
Maybe she can talk some sense
She's in a world of trouble
And she's the voice of experience

Her sister told us look before you leap
You might find yourself in way too deep
There may be danger that you can't see
You better look before you leap

Chances will be taken
It's easy to go too far
The more you think about it
The better off you are

Now someone's coming with a proposition
And I think I smell a rat
I say wait a minute mister
I want to think about that
I take a little time to listen
To the voices inside my head
It's my mama and my best friend's sister
And I remember what it was they said

They said you better look before you leap
You might find yourself in way too deep
There may be danger that you can't see
You better look before you leap
This song is from the album "Roadside Attractions".
