SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES
Sarah Vaughan


They ask me how I knew

My true love was true

I ofcourse reply

Something inside

Cannot be denied



They said some day you'll find

All who love are blind

When your heart's on fire

You must realise

Smoke gets in your eyes



So I chaffed them

And I gayly laughed

To think they could doubt

To think they could doubt my love



But 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



But today my love has flown away

I am without

I'm without my love



And now laughing friends deride

Tears I cannot hide

So I smile and say

When a lovely flame dies

Smoke gets in your eyes
