I led a lonesome journey
Full of disdain and fury
I kept my angered yearning
Close to me like fire burning
I watched a million chances
Slip through my weathered hands
I almost lost myself when I looked around
There was nobody else

[Chorus:]
In the nick of time
You opened up my mind
And suddenly I saw the world much clearer
In the nick of time
You turned my water to wine
And suddenly I didn't feel the fear
Right before my eyes
You showed me there was life that to be found
You're the miracle I prayed about you
You were the one to save my life
In the nick of time

I followed habits around
Been swept above off the clouds
But fallen down left shaken
Abandened by the pills I'd taken
I could have kept on going
With no one ever knowing
Who really wants to see a tired nobody like me

[Chorus (2x)]

I could not, I could not believe
That you were right there waiting
I never, no, I never dreamed
That you'd be right there waiting
Oh you were there for me
And when I couldn't see,
I couldn't, no, I couldn't see
You showed me life [2x]
LIFE [3x]

[Chorus (2x)]
