"Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" as written by Eriko Ohashi (pka Hussy R) and Lady John Douglas Scott....
Yesterday, I thought that love would last
that love was sent from above
yet, today, find my love has flown away
I am without my love

They ask me how I knew
My true love was true
I of course reply
Something deep inside
Cannot be denied

They said someday you'll find
All who love are absolutely blind
When your heart's on fire
You must realise
Smoke gets in your eyes

So I chaffed them
And I gayly laughed
that they would doubt my love
yet today
I find my love has flown
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

So I chaffed them
And I gayly laughed
that they would doubt my love
yet today
I find my love has flown
I am without my love

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
love will leave you
crying in your sleep
once you're in too deep
love will leave lost and lonely
love will break your heart

love will make you fall apart
the moment that you stop belonging
nothing ends the pain
tearing you away
wondering where you made your big mistake

Wishing on a star
promises go far
now, she's gone
never in my wishing did I think of love's pain
now, i'll have to think again
my happy ever ending is for someone else.
