"Our music is not something to lie down to, to get out of to, to die to, to commit suicide to. It's not a soundtrack to a nervous breakdown."

The Fly Lyrics

Found On:


Achtung Baby (1991)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"The Fly" (Baby version)

We barely know him
It's no secret

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
It's no secret that I left you and still I don't know why
You say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by the moon
Maybe I came to you baby too soon

It's no secret that a friend is someone who lets you help
It's no secret that a liar won't believe anyone else
They say a secret is something you tell one other person
What do you think, child

Love, shine like a fading star
She holds one love, the sky
Oh child
A man will beg, a man will crawl
But it's never too late to take his call

It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
Every secret-made ambition bites the nails of success
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief
And everyone seeks music 'cause everyone needs relief

And love, live like a shining star
She calls, the sun will burn through this hiding wall
A man will rise, a man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's no secret at all

Fuck

Love, we shine like a burning star
We're falling from the sky tonight
Love, we shine like a burning star
We're falling from the sky tonight
A man will rise, a man will fall
From the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's no secret
