Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Lyrics: Otto Harbach, Jerome Kern
Music: Otto Harbach, Jerome Kern

Recorded by the Jerry Garcia Band for the soundtrack of the film "Smoke"

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 can not hide
So I just smile and say
"When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eyes"
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
Without my love
