Richard Barrett – (When Your Heart's On Fire) Smoke Gets In Your Eyes lyrics

If you've ever been in love
You know the fire in your heart

They asked 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, oh, 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

And yet today
My love has flown away
And I'm without my love

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide
Oh, oh, hide

So I smile and say
When that lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes

Laughing friends deride
Smoke gets in your eyes
