(Kenneth Gamble / Leon Huff / Jerry Butler)

I was a sad and lonely girl
All alone in this big world, baby, (hey, baby) baby
Lost in a state of misery
Not a soul to comfort me, baby (hey, baby)

I couldn't find no help
Didn't know what to do with myself
Oh, I was standing in confusion
So badly disillusioned
When you wrapped your arms around me
I knew love had found me

I was lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
You know I was lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
Oh, I was lost

I thank the lord that you
Are the one who came to my rescue, baby, (hey, baby)
Thanks for me and this heart of mine
You came just in time, baby, baby (hey, baby)

I couldn't find my way, ooh
Don't you hear what I say?, yeah
Well I was standing in confusion
So badly disillusioned
When you wrapped your arms around me
I knew love had found me

I was lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
You know I was lost (so lost), yeah
But found in the nick of time
Well, I was out here in desperation
No means of communication
Just looking for a sign
Then you threw out your lifeline

Lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
You know I was lost (so lost), yes I was
But found in the nick of time
Well, I was out here in desperation
No means of communication
Just looking for a sign
Then you threw out your lifeline
Oh, so lost, so long
But found in the nick of time
You know I was lost (so lost), yeah
But found in the nick of time
Well, I was out here in desperation
