Nick of Time
by Bonnie Raitt



A friend of mine she cries at night, 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 is scared...scared to run out of time

I see my folks they're getting on 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 lines are pretty hard to take when they're starin' back at you

When did the choices get so hard
So much more at stake
Life gets mighty precious
When there's less of it to waste
Oh...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 I could 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, baby, love in the Nick of Time
