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 she can't decide

She's scared, scared she'll run out of time

I see my folks, they're getting old
And 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 to 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

Scared to run out of time

Just when I thought I'd had enough
And 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, baby
Love in the nick of time

I found love, darling
Love in the nick of time

I found love, baby
Love in the nick of time
