Cheek To Cheek, a gorgeous song that really stuck in my after seeing the movie “The Green Mile“.

cheek to cheekCheek To Cheek was the song that started the story of John Coffey form the movie “The Green Mile“.  When the movie starts, the protagonist Paul Edgecomb (played by Tom Hanks) is in a senior center watching the classic “Top Hat”.  The part comes where they are watching Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers doing their dance number while this song is playing in the background.  The song triggers the memory of his time as a guard on death row where he meets John Coffey.  The movie is a brilliant work of storytelling and has never left my mind, especially in how this song was used.

Only 27 days left…

Lyrics:

Heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek

Heaven, I’m in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler’s lucky streak
When we’re out together dancing (swinging) cheek to cheek

Oh I love to climb a mountain
And reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t thrill (boot) me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Oh I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don’t enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

(Come on and) dance with me
I want my arms about you
That those charms about you
Will carry me through

(Right up) to heaven, I’m in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together dancing, out together dancing (swinging)

Out together dancing cheek to cheek
