This is bascialy my new fav song. i love it SO much. Actually, I love this entire cd (the new Casting Crowns one, that is). But this is a song that has REALLY convicted me!

Casting Crowns Lyrics
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 have turned to gray
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 flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
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 have turned to gray
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 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

Parts I esp love:
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow– That’s so true…
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid– Thats like…exactly the way it goes. I think about it, make bad choices, and pay the price for them.
Be careful if you think you stand You just might be sinking– Just about my favorite 2 lines in the WHOLE song. Lots of times it’s when I think I’m doing well that I’m slipping.
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day
– Thats like…soooo true. I mean, no one just overnight is like taken over by sin. Its small compromises that change people, daddies, and families.

So, I love it!
