"Only When You're in My Arms"

music by Harry Ruby and lyrics by Con Conrad and Bert Kalmar

 Only when you're in my arms...

I can reach up to heaven
And pluck out a star from the blue.
It's true, but only when you're in my arms.

I can live without riches
And still have a million or two.
It's true, but only when you're in my arms.

Though I'm ambitious, my wishes
Have always been simple and few.
Give me the moonlight, the music
And, darling, an armful of you.

I can see myself doing
The things that I never could do.
It's true, but only when you're in my arms.
