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.
In my opinion, one of the most beautiful and sad songs of all time. Stardust is a song about lost or faded love. A love that now only exist only in memory and that is nearly intangible, like stardust itself. Whether the couple is together or apart doesn’t really matter. The love is gone just the same. All that is left is the memory of something that was wonderful, and now that it is gone, life will never be the same.
We are all put on this earth for a short period of time and for a special purpose. People will be watching our successes and failures. One should do whatever it is one does to the best of their abilities and not let the affairs of the world distract or keep them from their calling because time passes far too quickly. We must indeed realize there are “trade-offs” to be made in life, but many times the cost of our decisions will only be realized in brief retrospection. In the end, one will please some people and not others. There will be high points and there will be regrets. One will win some and lose some. One can’t have it all. So, give it one’s best shot while one can. Dance Ballerina, Dance.
