You Can't Hurry Love Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I need love, love
Ooh, ease my mind
And I need to find time
Someone to call mine

My mama said you can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
But it's a game of give and take

You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
Just trust in a good time
No matter how long it takes

How many heartaches must I stand
Before I find the love to let me live again
Right now the only thing that keeps me hanging on
When I feel my strength, ooh, it's almost gone

I remember mama said you can't hurry love
No you'll 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 must 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
Well, these precious words keep me hanging on

I remember mama said you can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
Well, it's a game of give and take

You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
Just trust in a good time
No matter how long it takes, now break

Now 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 hold me tight
I keep waiting, ooh, till that day
But it ain't easy
(Love don't come easy)
No, you know it ain't easy

My mama said you can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take
