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 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."

Smoke gets in your eyes.
