Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

They asked me how I knew
My true love was true
I of course replied something here inside
Cannot be denied

They said someday you’ll find
All who love are blind
When your heart’s on fire you must realize
Smoke gets in your eyes

So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
To think they would doubt our love
And yet today my love has gone 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
