When the stars line up, and you catch a good break
And people think you’re lucky, but you know it’s grace.
It can happen so fast, or a little bit late,
Timing is everything
You know I’ve had close calls, when it could have 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
And I could have been that child that God took home
And I would have been one more unfinished song
And when it seems a rhyme is hard to find.
That’s when one comes along, just in time
Well I remember that day, when our eyes first met
You ran into the building to get out of the rain, cause you were soaking wet.
And as I held the door, you wanted to know my name, timing is everything.
And I’ve could have been another minute late
And you’ve never would have crossed my path that day
And when it seems true love is hard to find
That’s when love comes along, just in time
Well you can call it faith, it destiny, something in real it seems like... it’s a mystery
Cause you can be hurt by love, or healed by the same, timing is everything
And it can happen so fast, or a little bit late, timing is everything.
