Electrical wiring

Hello group, I just joined the forum. Could someone answer an electrical wiring question? I have a circuit with 4 lights controlled by 2, 3-way switches. I'd like to add another light controlled by the same switches. Can I run just a hot, neutral and ground from one of the existing lights to the new fixture or do I have to use all 3 wires to connect it?
Thanks for the help.
Steve

Yes, just two conductors plus grounds is correct. (Three wires is concerned with the switch circuit only.)
