Songwriters: Hemby, Natalie; Jones, Troy

When the stars line up
And you catch a break
People think you're lucky
But you know it's grace

It can happen too fast
Or a little too late
Timing is everything

You know I've had close calls
When it could've been me
I was young when I learned
Just how fragile life can be

I lost friends of mine
I guess it wasn't my time
Timing is everything

I could've been the child that God took home
I would've been one more unfinished song
And when it seems the rhyme is hard to find
That's when one comes along just in time
Timing is everything

I remember that day
When our eyes first met
You ran into the building to get out of the rain
You were soaking wet

And as I held the door
You asked my name
Timing is everything

I could've been another minute late
And you never would've crossed my path that day
And when it seems true love is hard to find
That's when one comes along just in time

Well, you can call it fate
Or call it destiny

Sometimes it really seems like it's a mystery
You can be hurt by love
Or healed by the same
Timing is everything

It can happen too fast
Or a little too late
Timing is everything
