The Fly Lyrics - U2

Review The Song (8)



Oh, baby child...
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 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

A man will beg
A man will crawl
On the sheer face of love
sponsored links
Like a fly on 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

Over 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

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

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

greatest | Reviewer: beto mellado | 5/12/14

it's been a while since I listen this album... it's absolutly supreme... this song gives me the shivers... In fact I insist is one of the best albums of U2 and this is one of the best songs of the band...
close your eyes... forget the new order of music... listen to the solo... uuuuuuffff--- f...ing great!!!!!

Just a song? | Reviewer: jd | 5/6/10

This whole album has a huge back story. Look for the U2 subliminal messages stuff on youtube. Bono is also in interview about it and you soon realize this is not just an album..it's a message to real fans about the times in which it was written, and present day (next few years: 2010 onwards)

Just great | Reviewer: Tecumseh | 1/26/10

I agree this the best song from "Achtung Baby". What is really awesome about it is hard to spot a single impressive tune here, but when you listen to the song you can just feel great skills of all performers from U2 (voice, drums, guitars) creating as a whole an exceptionally beautiful harmony. Everyone who saw "Amadeus" know what I mean.

Totally Rock! | Reviewer: Elena | 9/7/07

I really like this song a lot! I like it when The Edge sings ''Love, we shine like a burning star, we're falling from the sky tonight''.
Totally awesome

A rocking love lyrics | Reviewer: AlexMcCave | 8/28/07

My favourite version of this song is on the U2 elevation tour DVD. They managed to rearrange this rather non typical for U2 song, a 90-es techno and electronic funny thing, into a one of the most beautiful love songs, which keep on rocking and echoing with the Edge guitar...

The Edge | Reviewer: gnat | 4/12/07

I think it's the best song on their best album. Yeah, I love One, but The Fly is just fun. Don't we all know this guy? Wait, am I this guy? The Fly was a gasblogger before there were blogs, the closing time genius who's running always running out of change on the last round. The Fly is living life, while One frets about it.

Musical Genius | Reviewer: elias | 11/3/06

There is nothing in this world (or beyond) that can compare to the enchanting and sheer stunning sound generated from The Fly. In particular the solo guitar, there is a soundscape like never ever before has been heard or ever will be replicated. This song will help you ascend to a level of euphoria that no other piece of music can achieve. It is absolute musical genius. An achievement of man through musical art that is incompareable to anything that has been achieved before it.

Hell yeah! | Reviewer: Malena | 4/9/06

This song is brilliant! It's amazing! It's funny, makes me smile!
And the music video rocks:D
Love it!
