A broken body, lifeless on the street
As sirens come screaming to the scene
A woman cries as his body lies in silence
It seems as though he thought the light was green

Driving by, I couldn't help but wonder
What happend to the life that now was gone
I thought how one day we might be together
if the Savior was who he depended on

Chorus 1 & 2:

Did he/she run into the open arms of Jesus
Did he/she meet the Father on the other side
Was he/she welcomed by the sound of gentle music
As he/she felt the warmth of heaven's holy light
Or did one more slip away into the night

I watched the news, though you'd think that I know better
For they show me all the sadness they can find
And there before my eyes I saw her body
The victim of a man who'd lost his mind

She was seventeen and never heard the bullet
She probably didn't even feel the pain
But that is not the question on my mind tonight
For there are other questions that remain

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:

I've seen the hurt inside my neighbor's eyes
I've felt the fear, I've heard his silent cries
And though I know Your love could save him
Still I wonder deep within, will he realize in time

Will he run into the open arms of Jesus
Will he meet the Father on the other side
And be welcomed by the sound of gentle music
As he feels the warmth of Heaven's holy light
Or will one more slip away
I can hear the Father say
"Don't let one more slip away into the night"
