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

    I'd say that you need to be careful with every decision you make. One bad choice will lead to another. And suddenly you find yourself lost and confused, and realize that you can't live without god. This song powerfully explains that you need to be careful, because what you say and do can affect others greatly.

    This song is sooo true. I have made plantey mistakes, you know it might be hard to sin the first time but then it so easy to sin again and you think well its not that big of a lie or well he does not have to know, before you know it you are covered in sin, this song I think just gives me hope and makes me feel like I am worth something.

    This song and video is so powerful...amazing song.

    We have to be careful about what we see, hear, say, think, and do, so the Devil doesn't get to us and so we won't "fade" away.

    GOD BLESS YOU, CASTING CROWNS!
