(When Your Heart's on Fire) Smoke Gets in Your Eyes [From Always]
by The Platters
Lyrics and Meaning
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 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.
