You Can’t Hurry Love lyrics



You Can’t Hurry Love – The Supremes!

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.
