The Fly Lyrics

Found On:


Elevation 2001 Live From Boston (2001)

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" (live from Boston)

"The way I saw 'The Fly' was like an obscene phone call from hell, but the guy likes it there. He's like calling home, saying, 'I like it.' It's a deranged kind of character. We have all these kind of people that we are, and there's some that you just don't want to let out in public. He's one of them." - Bono, NME

Love
Love
You walk out into the sports hall
Love
Lights go down
It's a whole different scene
Light and motion
Love
Light and motion
Lights up the motion of the sky
It's hard to walk away
Love
But you could have it all
We could have it all
Love
We could have it all some day
But love, we shine like a burning star
We're falling from the sky tonight
Love
And love, we fall like a burning stary
We're falling from the sky tonight
Love

Lifting up now

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
No secret that our world is in darkness tonight
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon
You know I don't see you when she walks in the room
No secret that a friend is someone who lets you help
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

That, love, we shine like a burning star
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
We're falling from the sky tonight
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
A man will beg
A man will crawl
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
On the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
It's no secret at all

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

Love, we shine like a burning star
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love

We're falling from the sky tonight
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
A man will beg
A man will crawl
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
On the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
It's no secret at all

Love, we shine like a burning star
We're falling from the sky tonight
A man will beg
A man will crawl
On the sheer face of love
Like a fly from a wall
It's no secret at all

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploded 'cause of one man's lie
Check, I gotta go, I'm running outta change
There's a lot of things, if I could I'd rearrange

Yeah
Gotta go
Gotta go
Gotta go
Gotta go
Gotta go
Gotta go
Gotta go
Gotta go
Gotta go
