Smoke gets in your eyes
They asked me how I knew my true love was true
So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
I, of course, replied
"Something there inside cannot be denied"
They said someday you'll find all who love are blind
When you heart's on fire, you must realize
Smoke gets in your eyes...
To think they could doubt my love
Yet today, my love has flown away
I am without my love
Now, laughing friends deride, tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say, "When a lovely flame dies.
Smoke gets in your eyes."
