"Our music is primarily uplifting, but at the same time there's a realism to our music as opposed to an escapism."

The Fly Lyrics

Found On:


Vertigo Live From Chicago (2005)

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 Chicago)

"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

Make a show, do the business
Maybe this is show business

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 don't see you when she walks in the room
It's no secret that a liar is a means to mental health
It's no secret that a liar won't believe anyone else
They say a secret is something you tell one other person
I'm telling you, child

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 at all

It's no secret that a conscience can sometimes be a pest
It's 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
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 at all

Achtung y'all

Love, we shine like a burning star
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

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