Nana Mouskouri – Smoke Gets In Your Eyes lyrics

They ask 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 shut 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"
So I smile and say, "When a lovely flame dies, smoke gets in your eyes"
