Finding Favour, “Slip On By”

Contemporary Christian rock band Finding Favour has earned chart ink with Slip On By, which enters the Radio and Records Christian AC chart this week at number 29. The Vidalia, GA band has crafted an emotional and inspiring ballad about making every moment count, as Slip On By tells several stories of life’s important moments not valued, from the perspective of an old man waxing poetic about his youth gone by. Blake NeeSmith (vocals), Ricky Dunn (lead guitar, piano), Dustin Daniels (bass) and Allen Dukes (guitar) have created quite the tearjerker with Slip On By, and methinks that, in light of the new year – and that they’re signed with Gotee Records, and anything tobyMac touches is gold – that this could be a Top 10 hit.

SLIP ON BY Lyrics
Finding Favour

Early morning by the riverside,
Saw an old man waiting for a bite
We started talking and he took me back in time

He said “I was young, and thought I’d always be
Then I woke up, now I’m 83
There’s so much I missed
Oh how I wish I could get back all that time I wasted.”

I see the tears of a young bride
The morning that we had our first fight
I should’ve held her tight
And on the day that my momma died
I hung up the phone and never said goodbye
Don’t let it slip on
Don’t let it slip on
Don’t let it slip on by

Well he looked up, tears in his eyes
Said “I’m not sure if you were lookin’ for advice
There’s just something about you that reminds me of me.”

“It ain’t easy always lookin’ back
But it seems these days that it’s all I have
What hurts me the most, is knowin’ what could have been
And if I listen real close, sometimes I can…”

Hear the sound of my little boy sayin’
“Daddy can you come play with me?”
But I was too busy
Then one day, my baby grew up and went to war
I never thought he’d be gone in the blink of an eye
So don’t let it slip on
Don’t let it slip on
Don’t let it slip on by

I shook the old man’s hand and I thanked him
And I drove home as fast as I could go
Just to let her know that I need her
That I love her
That I’m never gonna let another moment like this slip on by

Don’t let it slip on by
We’re only here for a little while
And God gives us only so much precious time
So don’t let it slip on
Don’t let it slip on
Don’t let it slip on by
Don’t let it slip on by
