"A Message To Pretty" as written by and Arthur Lee....
[Verse 1:]
People check to tell me
What they think is right
I don't listen to them
Don't know day from night
I'll go through life searchin'
Tryin' to find the one
I'd go slip, slip, you'd go slip, slip Away

[Chorus:]
And I don't need you to help me find my way
I can make it if I just don't see your face

[Verse 2:]
Once I had a problem
Didn't know what to do
Now I've got no problems
All I had was you
Guess I'll keep on searchin'
And try to find the one
'Cause I'd go slip, slip, you'd go slip, slip
Away

    General Commenti think the posted lyrics are slightly off:

    people try to tell me
    what they think is right
    i dont listen to them
    don't know day from night

    i go thru life searchin'
    tryin to find the one
    i go slip slip
    you go slip slip away

    and i dont need you to help me find my way
    i can make it if i just dont see your face

    (lisa)?!? had a problem
    didn't know what to do
    now I've got no problems
    all I had was you

    yes ill keep on searchin
    & tryin to find the one
    cuz i go slip slip
    you go slip slip away

    and i dont need you to help me find my way
    i can make it if i just dont see your face

    meaning: this song appears to be from the perspective of someone who has recently broken up with his girlfriend.

    the line "i can make it if i just dont see your face" seems to imply time will heal his wounds. additionally there are lines concerning his continual search for someone to fill the hole in his heart that imply the narrator has recently ended a relationship of some sort.

    the beginning verse certainly fits this mindset - the narrator is clearly lost and friends are offering advice on how to cope with the loss but the union of old continues to "slip slip away".

    the line "and i dont need you to help me find my way" & "i can make it if i just dont see your face" is a wonderful juxtaposition of two different mindsets after a breakup - the former of spite and the latter of partial regret.
