A friend of mine she cries at night, and she
Calls me on the phone
Sees babies everywhere she goes and she
Wants one of her own
She's waited long enough she says
And still he can't decide
Pretty soon she'll have to choose and it tears her up inside
She's scared scared she'll run out of time

I see my folks, they're getting old, I watch their bodies change
I know they see the same in me, And it makes us both feel strange
No matter how you tell yourself, It's what we all go through
Those eyes are pretty hard to take when they're staring' back at you
Scared you'll run out of time

When did the choices get so hard?
With so much more at stake
Life gets mighty precious when there's less of it to waste
Hummmm Scared to run out of time

Just when I thought I'd had enough
All my tears were shed
No promise left unbroken
There were no painful words unsaid
You came along and showed me
How to leave it all behind
You opened up my heart again and then much to my surprise

I found love, Love in the Nick of Time
I found love, Love in the Nick of Time
I found love, Love in the Nick of Time
