CASTING CROWNS


Slow Fade Lyrics

Be careful little eyes what you see
It?s the second glance that ties your hands
As darkness pulls the strings

Be careful little feet where you go
For it?s the little feet behind you
That are sure to follow

It?s a slow fade
When you give yourself away
It?s a slow fade
When black and white are turned to gray

And thoughts invade, choices are made
A price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

It?s a slow fade
It?s a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattering leads to compromises
The end is always near

Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises
Leave broken hearts astray

It?s a slow fade
When you give yourself away
It?s a slow fade
When black and white are turned to gray

And thoughts invade, choices are made
A price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than you?re thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

It?s a slow fade
When you give yourself away
It?s a slow fade
When black and white are turned to gray

And thoughts invade, choices are made
A price will be paid
When you give yourself away

People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh, be careful little eyes what you see
Oh, be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh, be careful little eyes what you see

This song makes me think that when it comes down to it what we do in the world mirrors what we watch on tv or look at on the computer or listen to on our ipods

This song talks about what we should do in the battle of our mind.Because what you see and hear goes to the mind and what we talk comes from the mind. Thus we have to be careful by renewing our mind.

When my husband started drinking alcohl, it made me feel like he was slowly fading. But when he heard this song, he agreed to go to rehab and he was saved almost immediately. My son and I rejoice!

It has been a slow fade watching my husband become an alcoholic as it took many years. A price has been paid to his soul and family. Sadly, our marriage of 25 years may end in divorce.

This song makes me cry because if I was very careful to what I see with my eyes I would have never made so many mistakes I have made. Really it takes a second glance and you are enticed and you sin.

Love this song. Reminds me that even with our minds we sin........and how if we are not careful, we may do things that we later regret!! Very touching song.
