"[I]n the early '80s . . . there was this rather ridiculous idea . . . that if it was big, it was bad. Which of course rules out Elvis."

The Fly Lyrics

Found On:


From The Sky Down (2011)

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" (From The Sky Down version)

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
It's no secret that our world is in darkness tonight
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon
You know I didn't even see you when she walked in the room
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
So I'm telling you, child

Man will beg
Man will crawl
On the sheer face of love
Like a sky on a wall
It's no secret at all

It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
No secret ambition bites the nails of success
Every artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief
All kill their inspiration and sing about their grief
Oh love

We shine like a burning star
Falling from the sky tonight
A man will beg
A man will crawl
The fear face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's no secret at all
