You Can’t Hurry Love Lyrics

I need love, love, to ease my mind
I need to find, find, someone to call mine
But mama said

You can’t hurry love, no you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy, it’s a game of give and take
You can’t hurry love, no you just have to wait
You gotta trust, give it time, no matter how long it takes

But how many heartaches must I stand
Before I find a love to let me live again
Right now the only thing, that keeps me hanging on
When I feel my strength, yeah it’s almost gone, I remember mama said

You can’t hurry love, no you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy, it’s a game of give and take
How long must I wait, how much more can I take
Before loneliness, will ’cause my heart, heart to break?

No, I can’t bear, to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love, to call my own
But when I feel that I, I can’t go on
These precious words keeps me hanging on, I remember mama said

(You can’t hurry love) no you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy, it’s a game of give and take
You can’t hurry love, no you just have to wait
She said: “Trust, give it time, no matter how long it takes” (Now wait)

No love, love don’t come easy, but I keep on waiting, anticipating for that
Soft voice, to talk to me at night
For some tender arms to hold me tight
I keep waiting, I keep on waiting
But it ain’t easy, it ain’t easy, when mama said

You can’t hurry love, no you just have to wait
She said: “Trust, give it time, no matter how long it takes”
You can’t hurry love, no you just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
