Nick of Time

Credits Lyrics: 
Roger McNamee

Nick of Time

In the nick of time
You will find your way
In the nick of time
A path from night to day

You’re feeling desperate, you feel you’re alone
Nowhere to turn for help, and nowhere to run

What do you see . . . when you lay awake at night?
Who do you really want to be?
Follow your dreams, don’t ever let them slip away
Good things happen in the nick of time

In the nick of time
You will find true love
In the nick of time
An angel from above

That desperate feeling moves in to stay
You feel a clock ticking, it won’t go away

What do you see . . . when you lay awake at night?
Who do you really want to be?
Follow your dreams, don’t ever let them slip away
Good things happen in the nick of time

In the nick of time
You will find me there
In the nick of time
Any time, any where

Your life is a drama, twisted and strange
But you are the author, and the story can change

What do you see . . . when you lay awake at night?
Who do you really want to be?
Follow your dreams, don’t ever let them slip away
Good things happen in the nick of time

Here's the back story:

Nick of Time is a letter of support to a friend struggling with life changes. It's hard for anyone to be available all the time, but a friend who is there for you in the nick of time is a treasure. The song is deeply optimistic, which reflects my philosophy.

I wrote Nick shortly after the Silicon Valley bubble burst in 2000; the Flying Other Brothers played it, most often connected by a long jam to a song called Devil's Kitchen. Moonalice has played Nick of Time 183 times, beginning at our seventh show (Black River Falls, WI) back in August 2007. We have played several different arrangements, including 3 verses with a jam at the end, 3 verses with the jam after the 2nd verse, and two verses followed by a jam into another song. The song translates particularly well to acoustic performances.

I wrote Nick of Time with a capo at the seventh fret. That allows me to make an A chord using the hand position of a D chord, enabling the notes to ring like a chime as I play the walk down arpeggios that define the song.

Tribe Comments

Ahhh, Nick of Time touches the heart and soul very intimately. Puts goose bumps on this old bear and lets the mind go to a special and happy place. One of my favorites!
