  • Lyrics
  • 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 timeWriter/s: BONNIE RAITT
