LYRICS:

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 the moon
Y’ 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.

Voice 1 Voice 2
A man will beg Love, we shine like a
A man will crawl Burning star
On the sheer face of love We’re falling from
Like a fly on a wall 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 the grief.

Voice 1 Voice 2
A man will rise Love, we shine like a
A man will fall Burning star
From the sheer face of love We’re falling from
like a fly from a wall. The sky… tonight
It’s no secret at all.

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

Voice 1 Voice 2
A man will rise Love, we shine like a
A man will fall Burning star
From the sheer face of love We’re falling from
like a fly from a wall. The sky… tonight
It’s no secret at all.

It’s no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploding ‘cos-a 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.
