Smoke Gets in Your Eyes Lyrics Meanings
by The Platters


Smoke Gets in Your Eyes Lyrics

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 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

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot 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

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes Meanings

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes is a song about the fleeting and blinding nature of love. People may warn you while you are in it and laugh at you when you're out of it, but that doesn't change the fact that when one is in love's passionate grip, one is oblivious to the reality of its coming and going. Love, like smoke, obscures the senses and dissipates quickly.
