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
