American Graffiti – Smoke Gets In Your Eyes lyrics

They ask me how I knew
My true love was true
Oh, I of course replied
Something here inside
Cannot be denied

They said, "Someday you'll find
All who love are blind"
Oh, 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
(Without my love)

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide, hide
So I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes
(Smoke gets in your eyes)
(Smoke gets in your eyes)
Smoke gets in your eyes
