[Verse 1]
Where are we drifting, you and I?
Drifting today ‘neath a sunny sky?
When life is young, and love is new,
And nothing else matters to me but you.

[Refrain]
Drifting, drifting, down life’s stream,
Red lips smile while bright eyes beam.
I don’t care where I drift to,
If I’m only drifting with you.
Drifting, drifting, down life’s stream
Red lips smile while bright eyes beam.
I don’t care where I drift to,
If I’m only drifting with you.

[Verse 2]
Dear, do not care ‘tho shadows fall;
Love is our pilot, and love is all:
Still in the dark my voice you’ll hear
And then dearly whisp’ring I love you dear.

[Refrain]
