They asked 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 don't realise,
    Smoke gets in your eyes.

    So I chaffed and I gaily laughed,
    To think they would 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."
