Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
They asked me how I knew
My true love was true
I of course replied
"Something here inside
Cannot be denied"
Verse 2
They said someday you'll find
All who love are blind
When your heart's on fire
You don't realize
Smoke gets in your eyes
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say
"When a lovely flame dies,
Smoke gets in your eyes."
