D                                       
He said goodbye from the edge of the porch 
     A
Like she'd been some casual friend
                G
He said "You're better off without me, I'm not what you need." 
         A
Like her momma had said about him
   D                       
He started the car, pulled out of the drive
       A
Didn't waste any time lookin' back
    G              
She watched him go thinkin' even a stranger 
      Bm                        A
Would show more compassion than that


[Chorus:]
             D                           A
She could've cried but she didn't have time
                    G
She had a baby to feed a pink blanket to find
                            D
To rock their little one to sleep
                               A                     G
She could've laid in bed for hours giving misery the power
        A           G
But she didn't have time


D       
She got a sitter and she got a job 
       A
'Cause she had a promise to keep
    G                                     
Her day was a factory and evenin' survival 
    A
And night was exhaustion and sleep
    D                                      
Sometimes she felt life was passing her by 
    A
And watchin' was all she could do
     G                        
Her friends said you gotta get outta the house 
     Bm                       A
And maybe you'll meet someone new


[Chorus:]
            D                          A
She could've tried but she didn't have time
                              G
She had a five-year-old to feed
                                                       D
She had ballet class, piano lessons and T-ball Little League
                            A                              G
She could've laid awake for hours givin' lonely nights the power
        A            Bm   
But she didn't have time


[Bridge:]
                           G                            Bm   
Not time, where would she find the time to trust a man again
                        G                               D   
Not time, for that flat tire, a crowded parking lot and then,
                        A                                           G
Not time, but yes, have coffee with the man that got her tire fixed
                                                  A  
She was thinking, 'Gosh, he's handsome' when he asked

Do you have kids?


[Chorus:]
             D                          A                  
She could've lied but she didn't have time 
                               G  
All she said was "She's five." 
                                  
He said, "I saw the car seat, I love kids -
                   D
Does she have your eyes?"
                            A        
And they sat and talked for hours 
                    G
Givin' destiny the power
                                               
She could've been afraid to fall in love that night
        A           D          A
But she didn't have time

G                                             A     
She could've been afraid to fall in love that night
                    G        D           
But she didn't have time
