"Bono, the Mother Teresa of abandoned songs, compassionately continues arguing the case for every single idea that has ever experienced even the most transitory existence." — Brian Eno

"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
Shine like a fading sky
She holds one love, the sky

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
It's no secret that I left you and still I don't know why
You say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon
You know I'd come back, baby, if you gave me some 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 what do you think, child

Love
Shine like a fading sky
She holds one love, the sky
A man will beg, a man will crawl
But it's never too late to take his call
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
And everyone needs music 'cause everyone needs relief

Love
Live like a shining star
She calls, the sun will burn through this hiding wall
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

Love
You shine like a burning star
You're falling from the sky tonight
Love
You shine like a burning star
You'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 the stars are falling from the sky
The universe expolded 'cause one man told a lie
Look, I gotta go, yeah I'm running outta change
There's a lot of things, if I could I'd rearrange

Love
Shine like a fading sky
She holds one love, the sky
Love
