I met a guy at the club
I let him know I'm in love
I met a girl at the bar
I let her know who you are

I told her you are the love of my life
And one day you're gonna be my wife, and
We are gonna have some babies together
Uh ah uh ah uh ah

I told him you are the man of my dreams
You saved me from drowning in the streams
I know we're really gonna last forever, and ever

It was those three words that saved my life, life
It wasn't complicated,
Wasn't premeditated
It wasn't underrated
Boy I'm so glad you stated those

Three words that saved my life
It wasn't complicated,
Wasn't premeditated
To you I'm dedicated,
Let's go ahead and say it

I love you, I love you
You are the love of my life, my life
I love you, I love you, I love you
You are the love of my life, my life

You know I'm holding your heart
Can't nothing tear us apart
You know I'm so in love, with you
Can't nothing tear us apart, no

I said, I-l-o-v-e–y-o-u, I'm so into you girl, she said
M-e-t-o-o, it's obvious I'm so into you boy
So why don't we, we hold (hold) on for (to) love (love)
Through the ups and downs never let go,
Holding on forever never (never) let go,

It all started with three words, saved my life,
It wasn't complicated [x3]
Baby it's three words, save my life

I love you, I love you
You are the love of my life, my life
I love you, I love you, I love you
You are the love of my life, my life

Song facts

"3 Words" is the title song from the first solo album by British pop singer Cheryl Cole, featuring additional vocals and production from will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas.

"3 Words" serves as the opening track for the album of the same name. Cole has referred to "3 Words" as her favourite song on the record. She said the song was "totally different from anything I've done [with Girls Aloud] or liked before" and took its inspiration from Cole's newly acquired love for dance music on the charts, especially David Guetta & Kelly Rowland's "When Love Takes Over".

The music video was directed by Vincent Haycock in October 2009. The video premièred on 27 November 2009 via Cole's official website. It bears lyrical and stylistic similarity to the 1999 film Eyes Wide Shut.

The single peaked at number four on the UK singles chart and has been certified silver in the UK.
