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
"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"
