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 is scared,
Scared to run out of time

I see my folks are 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 staring back at you

Oh Oh Oh, 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 wa-a-a-aste


Mmmmmmm, scared you'll 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

Yo-o-o-u 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, baby, love in the nick of time
(Love in the nick of time)
I found love darlin', love in the nick of time
(Love in the nick of time)
I found love baby, love in the nick of time

Yeah baby


Found love...
In the nick of time...

Thought I'd given up...
Given up baby...

Oh ooo wo ooo wo...

Bonnie.. A genius and a gem of a gal.
Simply one of the most beautiful pop songs ever recorded -- lyrically, melodically, and in its production; an absolute gem.
Real real nice! What a lady!
Easy 8 from yo boy
The lyrics to this-thoughtful and hopeful, wow. 
Bonnie Raitt, A real class act. Not her best but love her anyway.
