Eartha Kitt - Smoke Gets In Your Eyes Lyrics




They asked me, how I knew
My true love was true
I of course replied, something here inside
Can not be denied

They said, some day 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 would doubt my love
Yet today, my love has blown 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

So I chaffed them and I gaily laughed
To think they would doubt my love
Yet today, my love has blown 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

  1. Help! I'm a rock!

    She kinda sounds like Billie Holiday on some parts. That makes me love this even more. Platters version is my favorite though, but this is a close second

    They asked me how I knew
    My true love was true
    Oh, I, of course, replied
    Something here inside
    Cannot be denied
    They said someday you'll find
    All who love are blind
    Oh, 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 our 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, "

    Who´s here after Watchmen?

    Frank Hurtado

    I'm glad more people are watching this show and talking about it.

    @Frank Hurtado I thought it would be a decent show. But I have been Blown away by exactly how good it is. The first time I saw Watchmen by Snyder,... I found it an awesome film to experience, but later showings showedd it was mostly fluff,..Like cotton Candy...there was no "There" there. If you know what I mean.

    HBO's Watchmen feels like it is More a part of the cmic than the Movie was. It has amazing levels of depth,... and as the best films, it codes a lot of information into it's choice of Music,... cinematography,... and Lighting.

    If you're seeking a tv show where all is communicated through it's dialogue,.. you are missing a LOT of what makes this not only good,... but great.

    This song,... and Some enchanted Evening by The Castells, had me in love with the show... On My second viewing from ep 1 - 9. watching before i Listen to the Podcasts https://www.hbo.com/watchmen/watchmen-listen-to-official-podcast

    The Watchmen
    It's so cool that something that you hear currently brings you something that happens decades ago and it haunts your soul. The greatest component of music

    If you haven't seen it, watch "St. Louis Blues". From Wikipedia, "St. Louis Blues is a 1958 American film broadly based on the life of W. C. Handy. It stars jazz and blues greats Nat "King" Cole, Pearl Bailey, Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald, Eartha Kitt, and Barney Bigard, as well as gospel singer Mahalia Jackson and actress Ruby Dee. The film's soundtrack used over ten of Handy's songs including the title song." There are clips on YouTube but they don't compare to the full movie.

    Have heard just a little about her in my youth, and only discover more about her now. Eartha has a very special charm and her smooth velvety voice is unique. I sure want to hear more of her songs.
