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
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,
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.
