"3 Words" as written by Cheryl Tweedy, Will Adams and George Pajon....
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 your gonna be my wife.
And we are gonna have some babies together.

I told him you are the man of my dreams,
You saved me from drowning in the streams
And I know were really gonna last forever. (and ever)

It was those 3 words that saved my life.
It wasn't complicated, wasn't premeditated.
It wasn't under-rated, boy I'm so glad you stayed and

It was those 3 words that saved my life.
It wasn't complicated, wasn't premeditated.
To you I'm dedicated.
Lets go ahead and say it

I love you
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 your holdin' my heart,
Can't nothing tear us apart.

You know I'm so in love with you,
Can't nothing tear us apart (OH)

I said I-L-O-V-E-Y-O-U I'm so into you girl,

I said M-E-T-O-O,
Its obvious I'm so into you boy,
So why don't we, (we)
Hold (hold) on (on) for the (love).

Through the ups and downs.
Never let go.
Holdin' on forever never let go.
And I'm so into it

There are 3 words that saved my life.
It wasn't complicated, It wasn't complicated, It wasn't complicated, It wasn't complicated

Baby its 3 words that saved my life

I love you
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 )

    General CommentNot too keen on the lyrics, bit cheesy. BUT I adore this song when I hear it. Sounds completely unlike how youd imagine it from the lyrics. Really atmospheric and lovely.

    General CommentSomething strangely catchy about this song, obviously about being in love.

    Some corrections:

    I met a guy at the club
    I let him know I'm in love.

    It wasn't complicated, wasn't premeditated, it wasn't underrated, boy i'm so glad you stayed.

    M-E T-O-O, it's obvious i'm so into you boy.

    Lyric CorrectionJust one more correction:

    "it wasn't complicated, wasn't premeditated,
    it wasn't underrated,
    boy i'm so glad you stated those three words"

    If you look you'll see there's an 'ated' at the end of the words, they're all untidily linked and its almost pulled off lol. Its strange but i love it

    General CommentDon't know If I like Cole, but I DEFINITELY like this song...

    Agreed, very cheesy but pretty in its own way. I'm tend to put music before lyrics, so the beat's really addicting to me.

    And although enjoy the original version, the Doman & Gooding Mix is what got me hooked

    General CommentIt's a terrible song in all honesty

    the words are sooo narrow and simple and the music doesn't make for much relief. It's basically two people talking. To a really low beat.

    General CommentIt tooks me a while to fully appreciate this song, and Cheryl for that matter; at first lisyen I found the song very bland and I didn't think the hook was very strong, however I have grown to love the subtle nature of this song as I tend to grow tired of songs very easily, but this song grew on me and I now still never tire of listening to it. I must add though, it did take me a while to clock on to the fact Cheryl replied me too and I was sat like a delinquent for a while thinkinh what metoo could mean :)

    General CommentAt first glance to me this song appeared to be about two people meeting in a club and falling in love with eachother, however:

    (Cheryl Cole)
    I met a guy at the club
    I let him know what I love

    ^^ She meets a guy in a club and is making it clear that she told him she is in love with someone already.

    (will.i.am)
    I met a girl at the bar
    I let her know who you are

    ^^ in a similar situation he also meets someone at a bar but makes it clear that he '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

    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

    (Cheryl Cole)
    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

    ^^ Theyve told the person at the bar the person they are with is more or less the one.

    It was those 3 words that saved my life
    It wasn't complicated, wasn't premeditated, it wasn't underrated, boy I'm so glad you made it
    It was those 3 words that saved my life
    It wasn't complicated, wasn't premeditated, to you I'm dedicated, let's go ahead and say it

    ^^'it was those three words that saved my life' - This to me explains why they are soo keen to express their love for eachother to strangers in a bar, seems that they have saved eachother in some way almost as if they were in a bad place before they met and thats why they are so in love with eachother.

    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

    (will.i.am)
    You know you're holding my heart
    Can't nothing tear us apart

    (Cheryl Cole)
    You know I'm so in love with you
    Can't nothing tear us apart, no

    ^^this explains that they believe nothing will break them up and neither one needs to worry about ebing torn apart by the other partner meeting someone new at a bar.
    (will.i.am)
    I say I L-O-V-E Y-O-U, I'm so into you girl, she said...

    (Cheryl Cole)
    M-E T-O-O, so serious, I'm so into you boy
    So why don't we (we) hold (hold) on (on) to (to) love (love)
    Through the ups and downs, never let go
    Holding on forever, never let go

    It all started with 3 words that saved my life
    It wasn't complicated, it wasn't complicated, it wasn't complicated, it wasn't complicated
    Baby it's 3 words that saved 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

    ^as explained before.

    Overall the song is about two people reminiscing on how they have met someone at a bar but basically noone will stand a chance with them because they are so in love with their current partner as somehow they have 'saved eachother' with their love. Just my opinion guys :D

    General CommentAnother Correction, sorry to point out

    (Cheryl Cole)
    M-E T-O-O, it's obvious, I'm so into you boy
    So why don't we (we) hold (hold) on (on) for (to) love (love)
    Through the ups and downs, never let go
    Holding on forever, never let go
