Ghost the Musical - Three Little Words Lyrics


MOLLY (spoken):
I wanna marry you, Sam.

SAM (spoken):
What?

MOLLY (spoken):
I’ve been thinking about it,
I’ve been thinking about it a lot.
I think we should just do it!

SAM (spoken):
You’re serious

MOLLY (spoken):
Yeah. What is that look for?

SAM (spoken):
You never wanted to talk about it.

MOLLY (spoken):
Do you love me, Sam?

SAM (spoken):
What do you think?

MOLLY (spoken):
Then say it.

SAM (spoken):
What are you talking about? I say it all the time!

MOLLY (spoken):
No, you don’t. You say ditto,
It’s not the same.

SAM:
I say it with my eyes,
When I hold you close at night,
When I make you scrambled eggs,
When I tell you silly jokes,
When I turn out the light.

MOLLY:
Sometimes you need to hear it, Sam.
I need to hear it.
So I can really feel it,
So I can really feel it’s true.

SAM (spoken):
Molly, you know exactly how…

MOLLY:
Don’t speak, don’t talk.
You love me, Sam, I know you do.
I see it in you eyes,
I know it’s in your heart
There are no secrets there, no lies.
Still when we’re apart,
I get this fear and need to hear
I love you; I love you here in my life.
And everything about us is right.
When you find it there’s no reason to hide
From those three little words
That come from deep down inside.

SAM (spoken):
Come on, let's go.

SAM:
People may say it every day,
But it’s really not the only way to reveal it.

MOLLY:
But they say it, Sam. Sam, they say it.

SAM:
It doesn’t matter what their saying,
If words are all they are conveying.
If you feel it, and believe it
Then it should be all you need to know it’s true.

MOLLY:
Sometimes you need to hear it, Sam.
I need to hear it.
Or else you begin to fear;
Begin to fear it isn’t true.
I’d love to hear it everyday,
But even just this one time it’s OK.
I can live that way!

MOLLY:
It’s not like I ever doubt it, (S: It's not like you have to doubt it)
But I’d really like to hear about it (S: I don't want to have to shout it)
What you're feeling,
What are you feeling? (S: What I'm feeling)

You here in my life, (S: I say it when I sing, when I make you tea at night)
And everything about us is right. (S: When I massage your feet, when I ask if your alright)
If it's love how can you keep it inside?
You could just say it now, Sam.
Give me a sign!

You here in my life, (S: I shower you with my touch, when we’re visiting your aunt)
And everything about us is right (S: When I put away your shoes, when I laugh at all your jokes)

SAM:
I don’t know why I can’t.

MOLLY:
It’s just three little words, Sam.
Do you love me?
