Phil collins - You can't hurry love

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

Chorus:
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 the good times, no matter how long it takes

But how many heartaches must I stand
Before I find a love to let me live again
'Cos right now the only thing that keeps me hangin' on
I feel my strength, you know it's almost gone, I remember mama said

Chorus:
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


Now I can't bear to live my life alone
I've grown impatient for a love to call my own
And when I feel that I, I can't go on
Well these precious words, they keep me hangin' on, I remember mama
said

Chorus:
You can't hurry love, oh 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'll just have to wait
Just trust in the good times, no matter how long it takes

Now BREAK,
Now love, love don't come easy
But I'll 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, ooh, till that day
But it ain't easy, no, you know it ain't easy, and my mama said

Chorus:
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
She said love don't come easy, well it's a game of give and take

Repeat to fade
