Roxy music - Smoke gets in your eyes [bryan ferry]

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
