You Can't Hurry Love - Phil Collins

You Can't Hurry Love

Hello, I Must Be Going!
80s pop Phil Collins rock soft rock


You Can't Hurry Love is a number-one single recorded by The Supremes for the Motown label, released during the summer of 1966. Written and produced by Motown's main production team, Holland-Dozier-Holland, "You Can't Hurry Love" is one of the signature Supremes songs, and also one of Motown's signature releases. The single was the number-one song on the Billboard Pop Singles singles chart for two weeks, from September 4, 1966 to September 17, 1966, and reached number one on the soul chart for two weeks. The song became a number-one hit again sixteen years later, when Phil Collins' 1982 cover reached number-one on the UK Singles Chart for two weeks beginning on January 9, 1983. Unlike many of the earlier Supremes records, "You Can't Hurry Love" has inspired significant cover versions. The most notable of these was released in late 1982 as a single by Phil Collins from his second solo album, Hello, I Must Be Going!. Collins' version reached number-one on the UK Singles Chart (becoming his first number-one solo hit in the UK and peaking two positions higher than the original song did in that country), and reached number 10 in the United States. Although Collins had previously done covers before on album (of "Behind The Lines" and "Tomorrow Never Knows"), "You Can't Hurry Love" was the first cover he released as a single. Collins' version was the first track on the very first Now That's What I Call Music CD.

You Can't Hurry Love - Phil Collins

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 muck 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...
