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 got to 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 hangin' 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 hangin' 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

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
But 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
