by Jerome D. Kern (music) and Harry B. Smith (lyrics)
Song from the Broadway musical The Laughing Husband.
Sheet music cover

[Verse]

She: We two are travelling in loveland today,
We've gone astray, and lost our way.
What matter time or place or weather
If we have lost our way together?

[Refrain]

You're here and I'm here, so what do we care?
The time and place do not count; it's the one who is there.
Now all I ask is room for two,
And to be there with only you.
It would be heaven,
When two hearts are true hearts like yours or mine
The skies are fair e'vrywhere, and the sun seems to shine,
And now the wide world seems a little cosy corner for you and me.

[Verse]

He: There are just two on earth and no one beside,
My little bride, here by my side.
Naught of the busy world reminds us.
I only hope that no one finds us.
