We’ll be close as pages in a book My love and I So close, we can share a single look Share every sigh So close that before I hear your laugh My laugh breaks through And when a tear starts to appear My eyes grow misty too Our dreams won’t come tumbling to the ground We’ll hold them fast Darling, as the strongest book is bound We’re bound to last Your life is my life And while life beats away in my heart We’ll be close as pages in a book Never to part ********************* As recorded by DICK HAYMES and DEANNA DURBIN for inclusion, but not used, in the 1948 film of "Up In Central Park": HAYMES: My joy in loving you is past understanding It makes me much too eager, much too demanding I'm a very selfish lover, with a jealous heart If you should cross the room, I'd be alone I've got to feel your cheek against my own DURBIN: As close as this HAYMES: As close as this DURBIN: It's very pleasant, though confining HAYMES: I'll let you free while we're dining DURBIN: This lovely life you're designing, suppose it should fade HAYMES: So much of me and so much of you, and yet I'm not afraid, for... HAYMES: We’ll be close as pages in a book, my love and I DURBIN: So close, we can share a single look, share every sigh HAYMES: So close that before I hear your laugh, my laugh breaks through DURBIN: And when a tear starts to appear, your eyes grow misty, too, and...
