	A friend of mine she cries at night, and she
	F           | F/G |
	Calls me on the phone
	Dm7		| Em7                  |
	Sees babies everywhere she goes and she 
	F		| F/G |
	Wants one of her own.
	Dm7		  | Em7          |
	She's waited long enough she says 
	F		   |  F/G  |
	And still she can't decide
	Dm7		  | Em7	                |  Abdim	     | Am   |
	Pretty soon she'll have to choose and it tears her up inside...
	F        |  F/G               G     | C |
	She's scared...scared she'll run out of time.

	I see my folks, they're getting old, 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 you'll run out of time.

	Bb		    |  F        |
	When did the choices get so hard?
	C                         |  C  |
	With so much more at stake.
	Dm7		|  Em7	              | Abdim        | Am  |
	Life gets mighty precious when there's less of it to waste.
	F    |  F/G		   G	|  C  |  C  |
	Hummmm...Scared she'll run out of time.

	Just when I thought I'd had enough
	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, Love in the Nick of Time. 

	 Dm7 Em7 | G Am7 | F | F/G G  C
