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 see you when she walks 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

Love, we shine like a burning star
We're falling from the sky tonight
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

Love, we shine like a burning star
We're falling from the sky tonight
A man will rise
A man will fall
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 because of one man's porky pie
Look, I gotta go, I'm running outta change
There's a lot of things, if I could I'd rearrange

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