They ask me how I knew
My true love was true
I, I of course replied
Something here inside cannot be denied, oh no
They said, "Someday you'll find
All who are 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, boo hoo
So I smile and say, "When a love flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes"
