Added difficultly (and here are some words to appease the edit tool). Was this info helpful? Yes No
Capo 1 key C


[Intro]

Am C G F


[Verse 1]

   Am                          C
Be careful little eyes what you see
         G                                     F
It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
   Am                            C
Be careful little feet where you go
             G                               F
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow


[Chorus]

       Am                 G
It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
       Dm             F
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Am               G                   C
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
         F
When you give yourself away
Dm                        G
People never crumble in a day
       Am     C          G      F
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade


[Verse 2]

   Am                           C
Be careful little ears what you hear
     G                                 F
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
   Am                           C
Be careful little lips what you say
    G                             F
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray


[Chorus]

       Am                 G
It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
       Dm             F
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Am               G                   C
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
         F
When you give yourself away
Dm                        G
People never crumble in a day


[Bridge]

    Dm                             F
The journey from your mind to your hands
                           Am  G
Is shorter than you’re thinking
   Dm                         F
Be careful if you think you stand
                     Am  G
You just might be sinking


[Chorus]

       Am                 G
It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
       Dm             F
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Am               G                   C
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
         F
When you give yourself away
Dm                        G
People never crumble in a day
Dm                         G
Daddies never crumble in a day
Dm                          F
Families never crumble in a day


[Outro]

      Am                       C
Oh be careful little eyes what see
      G                            F
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
        Am                  C
For the Father up above is looking down in love
      G                            C
Oh be careful little eyes what you see

Sorry about the false tuning indication.
Its just standard tuning with a capo on the first fret.

i think that the very last chord in the song should be a C instead of an F, but other than that it sounds really good!

When playing 5 half steps down and capo on the 2nd fret it works nicely for my range:

Try these chords for the ending:
G D
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
D7 G
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
C G
For the Father up above is looking down in love
D G
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
