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
"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
"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, "To 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
It's a game of give and take"
